Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

8 servings
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • Confectioners' sugar, for garnish
  • Sweetened cocoa, for garnish
  • Sweetened whipped cream, accompaniment

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 14-inch, light colored, round pizza pan with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, beating well after the addition of each.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix with a whisk. Add to the butter mixture, mixing to incorporate, and add the vanilla extract. Fold in the dark and white chips and the nuts. Spread across the bottom of the prepared pan and bake until the edges are golden and the cookie is set but the center is still slightly soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To serve, sift confectioners' sugar and sweetened cocoa over the top, and cut into wedges. Serve sweetened whipped cream on the side.

Skipped the nuts and used all milk chocolate for child's birthday. I had a pizza screen, wrapped in heavy duty foil then topped with greased parchment. I kept it about an inch from the edges and it baked up beautifully. Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe as written, but I didn't have the kind of pizza pan described. I split the dough evenly between two 9'' cake pans. Everything was beautiful and delicious. I piped some vanilla butter cream frosting around the edges to make it look fancy, but it was delicious all on its own. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my daughters sixteenth birthday party. After trying another recipe and being disappointed, I came across this one. Let me tell you it's everything you hoped for in a chocolate chip cookie/cake! I followed one reviewers suggestion and took it out of the oven when I could tilt the pan to make sure the cake was set. Perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cake came out absolutely perfect. I followed the recipe exactly and I cannot believe how delicious it was. Keeper recipe for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy & delish! I made it for my son's 10th birthday. I omitted nuts because of other kids' allergies. It was devoured in 2 seconds & they all loved it. I put cutout numbers of a 1 and 0 & sprinkled powdered sugar on top. So cute!!! Beats spending a fortune at the grocery for one of these. Fast, cheap, delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay, so all I had was an analon rectangle sheet pan. I sprayed it with cooking spray and it worked fabulously! Also, I left out the 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts, 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts and didn't use the Confectioners' sugar, for garnish, the Sweetened cocoa, for garnish or Sweetened whipped cream, accompaniment. Instead, I added in 1/4 cup mini marshmallows after the chocolate chips. Turned out great and, after sitting about 5 minutes, it was still ooey and gooey! A BIG hit with the kiddos and parents alike! THANKS! WILL make this again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this for my son's birthday since it is his favorite cake and did not have a pizza pan without holes to fit it, so I put it in a 9 x 13 insulated cake pan and hoped it would turn out OK. I also did not use anything other than two different types of chocolate chips and it turned out perfect. It did take at least twice as long to cook in my insulated pan and I was so worried that it would be dry and hard, but it turned out perfect and everyone loved it. BEST chocolate chip cake I have ever baked. If you use a different size pan, just tip the pan if you are not sure it is fully baked --once mine seemed to have set it was done. I really worried about overbaking it, but I think this might have been caused by insulated pan or my oven. I just kept tipping the pan to be sure it was rigid and then took it out when it was. Don't be afraid to try this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
For my sister's birthday, I was going to buy her a Mrs. Fields chocolate chip cookie cake. But it was so expensive, I went searching for a good recipe. This is the one!!!It is so moist and gooey!!!I also make them in individual cookies and they turn out awesome that way too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! I modified the dough as recommended by other reviewers to include only 1.5 cups of butter which worked well. I used all whole wheat pastry flour and just 2 cups of dark chocolate mini chunks and no nuts. I did not have a pizza pan, but I was able to use a large oven safe plate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
