Did you know that you can Air Fry a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake? This super 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.
Why you should make this Massive Giant Cookie
It’s fun: Not all cooking has to be practical. There is more to the kitchen than just dinners and prepping for a party. This awesome insanely huge cookie doesn’t require special order from your favorite bakery and can be whipped up to enjoy in just 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 a dessert is a totally fun way to enjoy this awesome kitchen appliance and satisfy that sweet tooth!
Let’s Chat about this 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 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 burnt at all, but I like to be transparent on the type of cookie this recipe produced.
Where did the TikTok Air Fryer Cookie Trend Come From?
Originally, 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.)
- To note – the original video has a different air fryer machine than we have.
- Does this large TikTok Cookie in the Air Fryer work? Yes.
Check out the original video below to see the dessert inspiration.
- Cookie Dough – Refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough is what the tiktok video used, so its what we tested.
- Nonstick cooking spray – Although this recipe uses parchment paper as well its best to use a nonstick cooking spray.
- parchment paper – A requirement to get that chocolate chip cookie batter out of the air fryer
- Ice cream – This is totally optional but vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream tastes delicious scooped on a giant chocolate chip cookie.
- Chocolate syrup – Optional for serving, but cookie cake recipes like this, espiecalyl ones with ice cream topping, go great with chocolate sauce and caramel drizzle.

What is a Giant Cookie Used for?
Typically not just for one, depending on the size of the air fryer, this chocolate chip cookie can be cut and served as a chocolate chip cookie cake (way less expensive than a storebought version), as a substitute for a giant skillet cookie (less mess, and way quicker to bake), or just for an after-dinner dessert.
