Chocolate Cookie Cake

Chocolate Cookie Cake

It's a cake made from cookies! We loved the idea of a British chocolate biscuit cake so we made our version using Betty Crocker sugar cookies.

Cake
1
pouch (1 lb. 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
Butter and egg called for on a cookie mix pouch
1 1/3
cups dark chocolate chips (8 oz)
2/3
cup whipping cream
2
tablespoons butter
Frosting
2/3
cup dark chocolate chips (4 oz)
1/3
cup whipping cream
1
tablespoon butter
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Make and bake cookies as directed on package. Cool completely. Break 15 baked cookies into 1-inch pieces; set aside. (Save remaining cookies for another use.)
  2. Line a 6- or 8-inch round cake pan with foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In medium bowl, place 1 1/3 cup chocolate chips; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 2/3 cup whipping cream and 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat, stirring until butter is melted and mixture comes to a boil. Pour cream mixture over chocolate and stir smooth.
  4. Add cookie pieces to chocolate mixture, gently fold until all pieces are coated. Spoon into the prepared cake pan. Gently press mixture into pan. Refrigerate cake for 3 hours or until firm.
  5. Remove cake from cake pan and turn upside down onto a serving plate. Remove foil. In small bowl, place remaining 2/3 cup chocolate chips. In 1-quart saucepan, heat remaining 1/3 cup whipping cream and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat, stirring until butter is melted and mixture comes to a boil. Pour cream mixture over chocolate and stir smooth. Pour the melted chocolate over the cake; frost top and sides using a butter knife or offset spatula. If desired, decorate with melted milk chocolate.
