Equipment Needed to Make Cookie Cake
Ingredients For Your Colorful Halloween M & M Cookie Cake

- Baking Soda
- White Chocolate Chips
- Halloween M & M's

How To Make A Colorful Halloween M & M Cookie Cake
Step 1: prep the cookie
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the butter. Sugar, egg, and vanilla, and blend until well mixed.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, corn starch, and white chocolate chips, and mix well.
Add to the mixing bowl, and blend until well mixed.
Add the sprinkles, m & m's, and Oreos, and mix well.
Grease and flour a Wilton cookie pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Pour the cookie dough into the pan, and smooth out the dough evenly in the pan.
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack to cool.
Do not remove it from the pan!
Step 2: Assemble and Serve
When the cookie is cool, place the frosting in a pastry bag with the small star tip and pipe stars around the edge of the cookie/pan.
Add sprinkles on top of the stars. Cut into 3-inch pieces, and place on dessert plates.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the top of each piece, and drizzle with the hot fudge topping. Add more sprinkles and m & m's to the ice cream.
Serve, and enjoy!
You can purchase frosting already in a piping bag if you choose. All you need to do is open the package and pipe the frosting onto the cookie.
Also, make sure you leave the cookie in the pan. You just serve right out of the pan after the cookie is decorated.
What to Serve with Your Cookie Cake
Hot or Cold Milk
One of the most iconic food combinations of all time is the classic cookie and milk combo.
It can either be hot or cold as long as the cookie will be dunked into it.
Tea or Coffee
If you are not a fan of milk, you can either pair the cookie with a cup of tea or coffee.
Popular Substitutions & Additions
While the mixture is being made, you can add chocolate chips. For added texture, consider adding or topping some of the following:
- Chocolate Chips
- Chocolate Wafers
- Dried Fruits
- Mixed Nuts
- Shredded Coconut
- Crushed Toffee Bars
How To Store Colorful Halloween M & M Cookie Cake
Best Way To Store Cookie Cake Leftover
Before storing cookies, make sure they are cool.
Keep them at room temperature, and store them in an airtight container, such as a resealable freezer bag, to keep them fresh and soft.
And here's a clever tip: stuff a piece of bread into the bag.
This bread method may appear to work because the cookies tend to absorb moisture from the bread to keep it soft and fresh the entire time.
How Long Will Colorful Halloween M & M Cookie Cake Last In the Fridge?
Cookies can be kept at room temperature for two to three weeks or in the refrigerator for two months.
When cookies are frozen, they keep their quality for eight to twelve months.
Can I Freeze Cookie Cake
Cookies can be frozen for up to 3 or 4 weeks after baking. Allow cookies to cool completely after baking.
Freeze them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then put them in a freezer-safe zip-top storage bag with the name and date written for reference purposes.
Cookie Cake FAQs
Are sugar cookies the same as chocolate-chip cookies?
No. Sugar cookies have a higher flour content than chocolate-speckled cookies.
White sugar is also used in sugar cookies, whereas both brown and white sugar is used in chocolate chip cookies.
The type of sugar added to the dough will determine how chewy the cookie will be, and brown sugar tends to give a chewier texture.
Can I add more flour to the cookie dough?
Yes. Adding more flour to your thin cookie dough is the greatest approach to give it more solidity.
The flour will aid in the reduction of moisture in the dough, resulting in a wonderfully textured batter.

Can I add different flavorings to the sugar cookie dough?
Yes. If you are making your own sugar cookie dough instead of vanilla, try almond, peppermint, or citrus extracts for a unique flavor.
For flecks of beautiful color and a nice pop of flavor, finely grated fresh citrus zest can be added.
Is cookies a dessert?
Yes. Desserts include biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts, and fruit salads, among others.
Can I make a healthier cookie?
Yes. Oatmeal cookies are slightly healthier than sugar cookies.
Oatmeal cookies are lower in fat and higher in protein, fiber, and calcium than other cookies.
