Steps

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 9" springform pan with non-stick spray*. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl with a handheld mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy (approximately 2-3 minutes). Turn the mixer speed down to medium, add the eggs and vanilla, and beat again until combined.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add flour mixture and beat until just combined.
  • Add the white chocolate chunks and continue mixing until evenly dispersed.
  • Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 34-36 minutes until edges look set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack completely before decorating with frosting.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the unsweetened baking chocolate and the butter. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl with a handheld mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine cooled chocolate/butter mixture, vanilla extract, and milk or cream (starting with 3 Tablespoons). Turn the mixer onto low and slowly add the powdered sugar. Increase mixer speed to medium and beat until completely combined, scraping down sides as needed.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Remove cooled cookie cake from springform pan and place on serving platter. Fill a piping bag with the frosting and decorate the cookie cake. I like to use a Wilton 1M tip. If using, add sprinkles before frosting sets. Cookie cake remains fresh covered tightly at room temperature for up to 4 days. Undecorated cookie cake may be frozen, up to 2 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and allow to come to room temperature before decorating.
