    Is there anything better than brownies and chocolate chip cookie covered in decadent chocolate syrup? This (surprisingly easy!) Brownie Cookie Dough Cake is sure to be a show-stopper!Brownie layer cake covered in cookie dough frosting with chocolate syrup drizzled over top on a rustic wooden cake stand.

    To make this cake you will need:

    2 boxes of Brownie Mix (or you can triple this homemade brownie recipe)

    cookie dough frosting (below)


    4 cups chocolate chips (can be milk or semi-sweet chocolate)

    1 cup mini chocolate chips

    small offset spatula

    cake stand

    Brownie layer cake covered in cookie dough frosting with chocolate syrup drizzled over top on a rustic wooden cake stand.

    Begin by preparing brownie mixes according to box directions. Place 2 cups of brownie batter into each 8-inch round cake pan, three pans total. (To prepare the pans I generously coated them with GOOP, then placed a parchment circle in the bottom, then added more GOOP.)

    Allow brownies to cool then remove from pan.

    While brownie is baking, prepare Cookie Dough Frosting.

    Cookie Dough Frosting


        • 1 1/2 c packed light brown sugar
        • 1 c (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
        • 2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
        • 2 tsp. McCormick® Vanilla Extract
        • 1 c whole milk


        1. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a stand mixer (or hand-held mixer) on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
        2. Add in flour and vanilla extract into creamed butter until fully combined.
        3. With the mixer on low speed, and in milk a little at a time until fully incorporated.
        4. For the Brownie Cookie Dough Cake the mini chocolate chips will be added on top of the frosting. You can also add 1 cup of mini chocolate chips directly into the frosting.

        To assemble cake:

        Place 1 layer of brownie on the cake stand. Cover with about 1/2 cup of cookie dough frosting using a small offset spatula. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips on top. Add next layer of brownie, cover with 1/2 cup cookie dough frosting, then 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips. Place the final layer of brownie on top and cover the entire cake with remaining cookie dough frosting.

        Now press chocolate chips into the sides and top of cake. Fill in as much as possible.

        Drizzle 1 cup of chocolate syrup (you can also use chocolate ganache) over entire cake. Chill until ready to serve.

        I have tried a few of your recipes. All have been wonderful!!! I never knew homemade was so easy! The lemon bars were amazing gluten free. My mom loved them. And I made the lemon cupcakes with strawberry frosting with my homemade strawberry jelly. Wow!! And then the chocolate cake with the King Arthur black cocoa. OMG!

          lemon bars? and cupcakes with strawberry-how did i miss that 🙁 sad face-I agree with you-wonderful easy to make recipes!! but seriously now 🙂 i need those recipes 🙂

        Love to read and try your recipes. I bake for a coffee shop and always looking for new recipes. Thanks for sharing yours.

        Love your recipes

        OMG these recipes look fantastic and I can’t wait to try them. Thank you so much.

        Won’t let me print the cake recipe.

        Where is the print button for the cake?

        How did you make the chocolate syrup?

        The cake looks very delicious and mouth watering.just would like to ask, is it alright to eat raw flour? I am referring with the dough.just want to clarify.thanks.

          I talk about it in the beginning of my post. 🙂

        I live in South Texas and I never heard of GOOP. What is it?

        This looks wonderful! What size Brownie mixes do you use? The ones for 8″ or 13×9″ size mix? Thank you.

        Where is the recipe for the brwnie cake?

        I just want to take the time to say THANK YOU!! I love baking for my family and friends. You help me with new recipes. I needed to make a dessert for a mother’s day party that my friend is having and I wanted something different.

        For anyone that is worried about consuming raw flour. Place the flour on a shallow baking pan and pop it in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes and that will kill off any possible bacteria that could be on it. Let it cool and then use as directed.

        Would like to print out cake recipe.

        Love all these scrumptious recipes!!

        So amazing. Trying to figure out how I can pretend anything here is on my diet. I am going to make this chocolate chip cookie dough recipe for a company BBQ. I expect it will be a huge hit.

        The icing was amazing and easy to make. Will definitely do this again.

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
