  •  3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  •  1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  •  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1 cup M&Ms
  •  1/2 cup “jimmie” sprinkles (red, white, and blue preferably!)


  •  1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9” round cake pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Make the cookie cake: Beat coconut oil and sugar with a hand or a stand mixer until creamy. Beat in vanilla, then mix in baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar. Slowly mix in flour. Stir in M&Ms and sprinkles.
  3. Press batter into prepared pan, pressing more M&Ms onto the top as desired. Bake for 19-22 minutes or until the edges are just turning a light golden brown. It’s better to under bake this dough than over bake it. The cake will continue cooking a bit as it cools so err on the side of underdone for the best tasting cookie. Let it cool completely before frosting.
  4. Make the frosting: beat butter until smooth, then slowly beat in powdered sugar until crumbly. Add salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  5. To frost: use a 1M tip and a Ziplock or piping bag to decorate the cookie cake. Top with more sprinkles and M&Ms.
  6. Enjoy!
