Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

chocolate chip cookie cake

I used to work in an office where every time someone had a birthday, we'd all chip in (heh) for a Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. It sounds cheesy and like something straight out of Office Space, right? But everyone absolutely loved it, because really: Who doesn't love giant chocolate chip cookies?

The cool thing about this cookie cake is that outside of the office, you are free to decorate it to your heart's content. Drizzle some melted chocolate or caramel sauce over top; make it the base of your ice cream sundae; go fancy with real whipped cream and berries.

Or eat it plain -- as nature intended.
