Red White and Blue Chevron Cookie Cake

  • Chevron! It’s all the rage right now and it’s all over the place. Rugs, nurseries, baby showers and birthday parties, wall paper, phone covers….why not a cake?! A COOKIE cake to be exact.

    Red, White & Blue Chevron Cookie Cake 
    I had some red, white and blue candies left over from my Stars and Stripes Candy Flag Tray so I thought I would put them to good use.
    Before you get scared and think this is too hard, you should realize I used a cookie mix to make this cake. Hey, bloggers are allowed to be a little lazy sometimes. If the chefs on TV can use pre cooked rotisserie chicken in some of their recipes I’m allowed to use some help from a cookie mix, am I right?
    Red, White & Blue Chevron Oatmeal Cookie Cake 
         makes 1 cookie cake
    1 17.5 oz oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix {I used Betty Crocker}
    1 stick butter, softened
    1 egg
    1 12 oz tub of vanilla frosting
    Red, white & blue M&M’s or candy coated chocolates
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9X13 baking dish with floured cook spray. Mix cookies according to package directions. Spread dough into prepared baking dish. Be patient; it will be sticky and kind of hard to spread out.
    Bake for 13 minutes or until cookie is golden brown on top and middle is cooked through.
    Cool cookie cake completely. Meanwhile, get frosting and candies ready.
    Once cookie cake is completely cool, start out by frosting one side of it. Don’t frost the whole thing at once or the frosting could harden too quickly, making it harder for the M&M candies to stick.
    Try to line up candies in a straight line but don’t worry if it’s not perfect. Mine isn’t!
    Keep going….
    keep going…..
    TA DA!
    Now, invite all your friends over to see what a cool cookie cake you made!
     Why not get the kiddos involved and help sort the candies or put them on the cake? This was pretty fun and I’m sure they would love to help!
    It would be fun to do this with other colors and for other holidays too. Use your favorite team colors or school colors for a fun tailgate or game day treat! You could make a cake instead of a cookie cake, or even brownies or blondes! The possibilities are endless so get creative! Red and green would be fun for Christmas or orange and black for Halloween. What would you make?
