I won’t bore you with my opinion of the super bowl, as I am not a fan of either team, but especially not the Broncos. I do really enjoy play offs and championships games, but I am not much of a regular football fan. Unless there is food involved of course. I cheated on my diet and had pizza yesterday. It was awesome. And now that the super bowl is over, we can return to normal Sunday nights which include the Walking Dead.

I do wish I had some of this Cake Batter Monster Cookie Cake yesterday to wash down the pizza with. It’s a giant cookie cake this is filled with cake batter, MnMs and sprinkles. You might recognize this, because I’ve previously made this Cake Batter Monster Cookie Sandwiches. I’ve adjusted the recipe to fit for this cake.

There is plenty to love with this cake. First you’ve got the cake batter. I’ve used some dry cake mix in place of flour. Then I’ve mixed in chocolate chips and MnMs with a little bit of sprinkles. Every cake batter needs a hand full of sprinkles. And of course, no cake would be complete without a little bit of frosting.

I prefer to bake cookie cakes in a 9-inch Springform Pan pan so that I can easily remove the edges. However, if you don’t have a springform pan, you can easily use a 9-inch pan. I do suggest to line it with tin foil or parchment paper so you can remove the cookie cake. Of course, a bit of Crisco is good too.

After three attempts to make this cake, I am able to tell you I have the perfect formula. I reduced the amount of batter, so that you don’t have to over bake it. I also recommend coving the top with tin foil during the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent the edges from getting too brown. You can imagine what my coworkers must have been thinking when I showed up with 3 of these on Monday morning.

I will take any excuse to whip up a batch of cookie dough, but at least you don’t have to feel guilty because one slice of this is better than a handful of cookies. At least that it what I tell myself.

    Yum! I’m not crazy about the super bowl either. Last year I didn’t even watch it!

      I am only interested if the teams are any good, because my boyfriend doesn’t love football, and I am not bummed about that! I don’t have to sit through games every Sunday!

    What a fun cookie cake! Sprinkles AND M&M’s in one cake sounds like a great combo to me 🙂

    I’ll forgive you that Broncos comment only because this looks so stunning and makes me want to jam frosting and sprinkles in my mouth asap!
