  • 4 cups crispy chocolate cookies, 1 (10 oz. bag or box)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk

Frosting Ingredients

  • Powdered or icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Stir until thick but smooth.


For the cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  2. Add cookies and baking powder to food processor, or blender, and crush until very fine, should resemble flour or dry cake mix.

  3. Add in 1 and ½ cup whole milk

  4. Spray your baking pan or silicone mold with non stick spray

  5. If using a silicone mold, place onto a baking tray and then into the oven.

  6. Bake for 20-23 minutes

  7. Once the cake comes out of the oven allow to cool completely. Place in the freezer for 30-45 minutes BEFORE icing the cake, this cuts down significantly on crumbs.

Recipe Notes

Your climate will dictate how much milk is necessary for the icing. You may need 2 tbsp of milk if you are in a dry climate, however if you are in a very humid or moist area, you may use less liquid.
In lieu of milk you can substitute with water or flavored coffee creamer.
