Halloween Sprinkle Cookie Cake #HalloweenTreatsWeek

My chocolate chip cookie cake has gotten a sweet and spooky upgrade with chocolate frosting, a fun sprinkle mix, and candy bones & eyeballs. A Halloween Sprinkle Cookie Cake is the perfect sweet treat for any costume party on All Hallow's Eve!

Happy October! I love Halloween so much and am very excited to participate in this year's #HalloweenTreatsWeek hosted by my friend Angie from Big Bear's Wife. Angie loves Halloween just as much as I do and I cannot wait to share all of my sweet treats with you this week!! First up is a Halloween Sprinkle Cookie Cake.

Cookie cakes have always been a favorite treat of mine. I love being able to bake and decorate it with frosting and sprinkles - which I usually don't for regular chocolate chip cookies. Themed cookie cakes are especially fun. I added a bright and festive sprinkle mix into this batter for some extra color and flair.

I love the Dragon Dreams sprinkle mix from sponsor Shop Sweets & Treats, and knew it would be a great addition to my cookie cake. The sprinkles are used both inside the cookie dough, and on top of the frosting. Sprinkles are my favorite thing to hoard. With all the fun sprinkle mixes out there, there are so many options for treats.

The delicious chocolate frosting is easy to whip up and a dream to work with. Only a few ingredients are needed for an easy decorative element. I chose chocolate for the frosting - because chocolate! - but feel free to omit it replace the cocoa with powdered sugar, and color the frosting. I think the chocolate showcases the sprinkles best, and because I had white sprinkles and candies, chocolate was perfect for everything.

In addition to the fun sprinkle mix, I used Wilton Candy Eyes and Wilton Skull & Bone Sprinkle Mix. They add both a cute and spooky vibe and are perfect on the chocolate frosting. Little L&C loved looking at the eyeballs and bones and sprinkles when the cake was finished. No tricks needed for this treat. Have a happy Halloween!

Halloween Sprinkle Cookie Cake

Adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sprinkle mix

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350F. Lightly spray 14-inch pizza pan with cooking spray.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set aside
  3. In large bowl or bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla and combine. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  4. While mixer is on low, add in dry ingredients and incorporate. While on low, add in chocolate chips and sprinkles and mix until just combined.
  5. Place cookie dough into pizza pan and using a spatula or your hands, flatten dough until it barely reaches the edges (dough will spread). Make sure your pan is big enough, or the dough will overflow in the oven. You can also use a deep dish pan.
  6. Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until lightly brown. Cool cookie cake completely before decorating.
