Did you know you can air fry a giant chocolate chip cookie cake?

This amazing giant cookie can be made in any air fryer brand (we used the Ninja Foodi) and is perfect with a scoop of ice cream.

Completely easy and fast with only store-bought cookie dough, this TikTok Hack will delight and awe your kids.

It’s fun. Not all cooking has to be practical. There is more to the kitchen than just dinners and preparing for a party.

This awesome, insanely huge cookie doesn’t require a special order from your favorite bakery and can be whipped up to enjoy in 10 minutes. Perfect for a birthday party, a snack, or just for fun, refrigerated dough makes making a cookie cake a breeze.

A new way to use an air fryer: Let’s face it, we are all crisping green beans and air frying dinner, but using an air fryer for dessert is a totally fun way to enjoy this awesome kitchen appliance and satisfy that sweet tooth!

Let’s chat about this super Viral TikTok Dessert.

As this recipe came from a viral on TikTok, we always have some commentary on testing it out.

Full disclosure: I made this giant cookie cake twice. I made it the first time and checked it at 7 minutes because I swear I could smell it burning, and I thought it was good and done. But it wasn’t.

It was doughy in the center. So I tossed it out because it fell apart, pulling it out of the air fryer pan. 

The second batch was way better. Now, this is a COOKED cookie.

I think you do need to put it in for a full 10 minutes, or you’ll have a doughy mess, but this massive cookie is chewier with a crunch versus super soft. It’s incredibly delicious and doesn’t taste burned at all, but I like to be transparent about the type of cookie this recipe produces.

We saw this one floating around a few times and tracked it to Air Fryer Guy. He had a cute little song about making a cookie in the air fryer, too (which is likely why TikTok passed this one my way).

  • The original video has a different air fryer machine than we have.
  • Does this large TikTok cookie in the air fryer work? Yes.

  • Cookie Dough: Refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough is what the TikTok video used, so it’s what we tested.

  • Ice cream is optional, but vanilla or chocolate ice cream tastes delicious scooped on a giant chocolate chip cookie.
  • Chocolate syrup is optional for serving, but cookie cake recipes like this, especially ones with ice cream topping, go great with chocolate sauce and caramel drizzle.
