When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, I truly believe that chocolate chip cookie cake is basically the more evolved, delicious version.

If chocolate chip cookies are good, then a massive amount of chocolate chip cookie dough in a cake must be better.

The only problem is finding the right chocolate chip cookie cake recipe, because there are some chocolate chip cookie recipes that don’t translate well to a massive cake version.

After trying out a few chocolate chip cookie recipes, including the Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie recipe, Joanna Gaines chocolate chip cookies, and Grand Floridian chocolate chip cookies, I decided to go with my favorite, the Nestle Tollhouse version, for a cookie cake.

To make a Nestle Tollhouse chocolate cookie cake, you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

Press all of the cookie dough into an 8 to 10 inch square or circle pan that is covered in baking paper.

Bake at 375 F (190 C) for 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Save

Check if it’s baked through by sticking a toothpick in the center and seeing if it comes out clean.

If not, you can put foil over the top of the cookie cake to not let the top get too overbaked while the middle cookes through.

  • Save

Let cool in the pan for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool by using a plastic spatula going around the sides to loosen anything up.

How to Store Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Store chocolate chip cookie cake at room temperature for up to 4 days in an airtight container.

You can freeze it, as well, but I recommend freezing in individual slices wrapped in saran wrap.

Freeze for up to 3 months.

I don’t recommend substitutions for baking recipes because the recipes are specifically formulated to work well together scientifically.

However, you can mix it up by adding in other mix-ins like different kinds of chocolate chips, Reeses Pieces, etc.
