This Halloween Cookie Cake combines the classic fall season with pumpkin and then gives it a halloween touch with the decorating! It is super easy to make and it is a recipe you will not want to pass up!

This cookie cake is especially easy because it uses a box mix. It is light and fluffy and has the most incredible pumpkin flavor that transports you into the fall season!

Making this recipe specifically for Halloween is so fun. I love to frost it with black frosting because that is totally spooky and then adding Halloween themed sprinkles and maybe even candy corn really is the cherry on top!

Box mix is great, but do you want to make it from scratch? Because I have the perfect homemade pumpkin cookie recipe as well as the best homemade vanilla buttercream and cream cheese frosting!

Expert Tips

  • Adding chocolate chips can’t hurt! Either regular or white would taste great!
  • Put foil in the pan to easily remove the cake! Make sure to let the cake cool first!
  • Remember: food coloring can go a long way so start out with only a few drops and then add more if needed. 
  • Use any sprinkles you have. The holiday aisles have all the fun sprinkles out now. This would also be cute for Christmas.

FAQs

Can you freeze cookie cake?

You can! I would recommend slicing the whole cake and then freezing them in an airtight bag or container!
