How to Make Brownie Cookie Dough Cake

Begin by preparing brownie mixes according to box directions. (Or making from-scratch brownies.) 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 the brownie is baking, prepare Cookie Dough Frosting.

How to Assemble a Brownie Cookie Dough 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 the cake. Fill in as much as possible.

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


I am thankful that Kara from Kara’s Koutour Cakes addressed the “raw flour” issue. I could not agree with her more! SEE IT HERE

    I’m concerned about raw flour in the frosting? Can’t it make you sick?

    • eve says:

      How do you cook raw flour?
      Simply spread two cups of flour on a baking sheet or Silpat, and bake for about 5 minutes at 350° F. Let cool completely. Then use the flour in your preferred cookie recipe. By carrying out this toasting process, you are killing off any bacteria that might be lingering in your flour before you’ve baked the cookies
