Since the six month mark, we have really slipped and stopped even mentioning that another month went by. We are planning on going out to dinner tonight but I wanted to make him a little treat to show him how much I appreciate and love him.
Here is my Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake Recipe or how to throw together some stuff from the store make one!
For this project you will need:
- An 8 inch pan, any shape you would like
- A batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. You can make it or buy it. I bought mine because it was 8pm when I thought about creating this and I wanted to get to bed at a decent time!
- A tube of decorating icing. Again you can make your own.
- Sprinkles, chocolate chips, M&M's, go crazy!
Step 1: Press your cookie dough into the pan. I nuked mine (with the metal ends cut off!!!) for one min just to soften it up.
Step 2: Bake according to directions on package. I baked mine at 375 degrees for 11 min. While baking you might want take the time to do your dishes and wipe your counters off. That's how I used my time!.
Step 3: Once cookie cake is done baking let it cool somewhere. I wanted to get to decorating so I put my in fridge for about 45 min.
Step 4: Once cookie is cool it's ready to be "written on". Make sure that your cookie really is cool. If it's warm, the icing will spread everywhere and it won't be pretty! Pipe on whatever you want to say on your cookie cake. 8 inches isn't a lot of room. I thought that I had enough room for "month" but I didn't! Oh well!
Step 5: Decorate with your decorations. If you want your cookie cake to be understated and not too busy, skip this step. I choose to accent my letters with M&M's. Josh loves chocolate. I can do without it just fine. Boys love crafty details so I made sure that I added a little something!
Step 6: Enjoy your chocolate chip cookie cake. I have yet to cut into it yet so I am not sure if you should use a pizza cutter or knife. Any ideas?
Next month will be the big ONE YEAR! We are going to Washington D.C. to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity and hang around the city!
