Cookie Dough Cake

Chocolate Chip Cake:
1 box white cake mix, or yellow
3 eggs
½ C. butter, melted
¾ C. buttermilk or milk
¾ C. sour cream
1/3 C. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 C. mini chocolate chips
Cookie Dough Frosting:
2 C. butter, softened
2/3 C. brown sugar
3 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 C. flour
1 tsp. salt
5-6 C. powdered sugar
2/3 C. mini chocolate chips, for filling
For decoration:
1 ½ C. mini chocolate chips
8 chocolate chip cookies
1/3 C. crushed cookies for decoration


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 3 8-inch pans. (I like to line the bottoms of my pans with foil or parchment for easy removal.)
2. Sift cake mix into a small bowl and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, use a whisk to combine eggs melted butter, buttermilk, sour cream, brown sugar and vanilla extract.
4. Stir in cake mix and chocolate chips.
5. Divide evenly between your prepared pans and use a spatula to spread the batter level. Bake for 17-22 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. (If you are making only two layers, it will take 20-25 minutes in the oven.)
6. Cookie Dough Frosting: Beat butter and brown sugar for 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract, flour and salt and beat again. Slowly add in powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency.
7. Remove about 2 C. of frosting (this will be what you use between your cake layers) and mix with the chocolate chips.
8. To assemble cake, place your bottom layer of cake on your cake stand. Use half of the frosting mixed with chocolate chips to frost on top of your cake. Then, place your next level of cake on top. Use the remaining frosting mixed with chocolate chips to frost that layer. Top with the final layer of cake and cover the cake with the rest of the frosting. (Save a little frosting to pipe decorations on top of the finished cake if desired.)
9. Use mini chocolate chips to cover the sides of your cake and decorate the top with piped frosting, cookies and crushed cookies.
