Giant Confetti Cookie Clock
Tick-tock – It’s party time, and what better way to celebrate than with a giant confetti cookie clock! An easy recipe that has a hidden surprise inside, party guests will love digging in to this delicious cake!
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
- Yield: 8 servings
- 2 (16.5 oz) rounds refrigerated sugar cookie (or chocolate chip) dough
- 2 cups rainbow colored chocolate candies
- 1 cup rainbow sprinkles and/or nonpareils
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup black cookie icing
- Nonstick baking spray
Heat oven to 350°F.
Line a GoodCook 11” Cast iron pan with parchment paper.
Press 1 round of sugar cookie dough into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, just
until set. Allow to cool, then invert sugar cookie onto a cooling rack.
Spray pan generously with nonstick baking spray, or line again with parchment paper. Press
second round of sugar cookie dough into the pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or just until set.
Remove from oven and cool, but do not remove sugar cookie from bottom of cast iron pan.
While sugar cookie cools, in a stand mixer or large bowl, beat together butter, powdered sugar,
milk and vanilla.
Spread a small amount of frosting on top of the cast iron cookie, pipe a small amount around
the edges of the cookie in the skillet. Fill cookie with sprinkles and chocolate candies. Flip the
first cookie upside-down and place atop the cast iron pan. Frost with remaining frosting.
Pipe clock numbers and clock hands atop the cookie with black icing.
Allow to frosting to set for 1-2 hours minimum before serving.
Store on countertop overnight, if needed. Slice with a very sharp knife, and serve with a pie
server for best results.
For best results, make this cookie the day before serving. Doing so will allow the cookie to soften under the frosting, with both top and bottom layers “sealing” nicely together.
To serve, cut with a very sharp knife.
