“Since I’m a self confessed sprinkle addict I added a few more for good measure after the cookie cooled”

Look no further than Jonathan Russ’s super simple tasty treat. “When I was a kid I always loved chocolate chip cookie cakes,” shares Russ, owner of Jonathan Caleb Cake in Greenville, South Carolina. “A chocolate chip cookie large enough to slice like a pizza?
