Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake

This Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake is seriously awesome and addictive! Moist, chewy, chocolatey and the perfect blend of cookie and brownie-like texture. It might even be better than my regular Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Cake and Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Cake. If nothing else, it’s some good competition.

Certainly there’s a cookie cake for everyone here!

But before we get too far into the cookie and can’t turn back, I want to share some exciting news. Today is the 1 year blogiversary for Life, Love and Sugar!

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since my first posts (I posted 3 the first day so that it wouldn’t feel so empty :) ). At the time, I hadn’t really narrowed down what I’d be blogging about. I was just starting to try and get pregnant so I thought I might have a little more of that mixed in but alas there’s no baby yet. And as time went on it became clear that food – mostly sweets with a little bit a savory mixed in – was what I wanted to do. I love all food, especially delicious treats, and it’s what you all seem to want too. What you want, you shall get!

And let’s be honest, you all are what makes this blog what it is. Without you wonderful readers, it’d be nothing.

So I want to send out a HUGE thank you to all of you who read, share, comment and make the recipes I post. Knowing you enjoy the recipes and find them great enough to share with people is what really makes my day and keeps me working to make the next best recipe.

Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake

The other super exciting news is that I am moving the blog from wordpress.com to a self hosted blog on wordpress.org. It’s so close to being ready and I can’t wait! That’s part of why I’ve been a little MIA the past week or so – so much to do! Hopefully I can make it official this weekend.

Truthfully it may not look much different to you initially. As time goes on, I’d like to do more. But the initial thing I think you will love and I’m adding just for you is a much better printing ability. I’ve received a number of emails about how the print button now prints the whole post as well as comments, so once I officially make the switch, that won’t be a problem anymore. Yay!!

Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake

The only thing is that I may loose some of my wonderful followers. I’m trying to get all my email subscribers transferred over, but those of you who follow via wordpress will no longer see my new posts unless you subscribe via email or another method, such as Bloglovin or Facebook. I just wanted to give you all a heads up! I don’t want you to miss out!

So of course if makes sense that I’d celebrate a blogiversary and an exciting change with a cake! And not just any cake, but a triple chocolate cookie cake. It is FULL of dark chocolate, semi sweet chocolate chunks and milk chocolate M&Ms. Yum!

Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake

And like I said before, so moist, chewy and chocolatey with the perfect texture. I didn’t want to stop eating it. Really.

Plus, I love the pop of color from the M&Ms. So pretty and happy! It might even be as happy as the sprinkle filled Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Cake. :)

So celebrate with me and make a cookie cake!

Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake

3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
 (I use Hershey’s Special Dark)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 -3/4 cup of chocolate chunks
1/2 cup M&Ms

1. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
2. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
3. Add flour, cocoa and baking soda and mix until combined.
4. Stir in chocolate chunks and M&MS. Dough will be thick and sticky.
5. Chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7. Place parchment paper in the bottom of your cake pan to help the cookie not stick. Grease the sides.
8. Spread the dough out into the cake pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
9. Remove from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes, then carefully transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Buttercream

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tbsp water

1. Beat the shortening and butter until smooth.
2. Slowly add cocoa and half of powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
3. Add 1-2 tbsp water.
4. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add water to get the right consistency.

Enjoy!

2 Ingredient Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

I’m switching things up a bit today with a different kind of recipe. This one is for our four legged doggy friends. However, despite the fact that I meant it for dogs, we humans could eat it too. In fact, you could eat it alongside your dog. The hubs does. :)

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

I decided to make these treats when I realized I’ve been posting all these great frozen summer treats – like the Mint Oreo Brownie Ice Cream Cake, Lemon Icebox Pie, and Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake – and I’m leaving out my favorite furry friend – our sweet black lab, Jessie! She gets hot during the summer too! Maybe even more than we do! After all, she has lots of pretty, thick black hair.

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

We normally buy her frozen doggy ice cream treats at the grocery store. But after falling in love with the ease of One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream, I decided I could totally use that as the base for a really tasty and healthy dog treat. Plus, it’s cheaper to make myself. :)

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

And they are so easy to make. Once you’ve made your banana ice cream from frozen bananas, you add some peanut butter, then freeze. Does it get any easier?!

I topped mine off with a little doggie treat for decoration, but that’s totally optional. :)

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

The hardest part (for both of us!) was making her wait to eat them until after I’d taken pictures. She was waiting as patiently as she could but once she got it, it didn’t stand a chance.

I’d say she liked it. :)

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

2 Ingredient Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats
Makes 3-4 treats

4 bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 plastic mini cups (you could use paper cups, but I’d take the paper off before giving it to your dog)

1. Peel and slice your bananas.
2. Freeze banana slices.
3. Put frozen banana slices in a food processor and blend. You’ll need to scraped down the sides a few times. It will get pretty thick.
4. Keep blending until it smooths out into soft serve banana ice cream.
5. Add peanut butter and mix well.
6. Separate into 3-4 cups and freeze.

Enjoy!
