I’m taking the classic party cake and turning it into a delicious cookie recipe! Texas Sheet Cake Cookies are fudgy chocolate cookies topped with the classic poured chocolate icing. This chocolate frosted dessert will easily become a new party favorite!
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 3 Tbsp milk
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°
- Line baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat, set aside.
- In bowl of stand mixer beat butter and sugar together until light, scraping sides frequently.
- Add in egg and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. Mix in baking powder and salt.
- Turn mixer to low and slowly add in flour. Dough will be thick.
- In a microwave safe bowl heat chocolate chips on high in 30 second increments until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds.
- Mix melted chocolate directly into cookie dough until evenly mixed.
- Drop dough by a measured tablespoon sized mounds onto baking sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes until cookies just appear set. They will still be very soft on the inside. DO NOT overbake!!

*Make sure not to overbake these cookies. The insides will remain soft and dense if baked correctly.
