My Chocolate Explosion Cookie Cake is great for any cold winter’s day, or really any day of the year!

With yet another winter storm hitting us, I have a lovely simple cookie cake recipe for you today that is yummy as can be! 

Go get your favorite Chocolate Cake Mix and I bet you’ve probably got the rest of the ingredients right in your pantry.

If you don’t have the exact candy mix I used, don’t worry. Use whatever you have, or whatever mix you like best. :)

Stay warm everyone!


I used my springform pan because I love the way this cookie cake turns out when I use it.

You certainly don’t have to use a springform pan, you could use a round pie plate, or even a regular 13 x 9 pan.


Just look at that lovely little bit of chocolate caramel candy snuggled gently inside the cookie cake. It’s like a big, soft chocolate hug. :)



You want to be sure to let your Chocolate Explosion Cookie Cake cool before cutting and serving.

You can always warm up individual slices in the microwave for a few seconds and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
