Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 or 2 packages square cookies (at least 20 cookies per pack)
  • 3 cups milk or coffee
  • 4 TBSP sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • Pearled sugar and sprinkles decoration


  1. Start by dipping your cookies into the milk or coffee 3 cookies at a time. BE CAREFUL! Your cookies will get mushy so don't put them in all at once. Only a quick 1 second dunk should suffice.

  2. Arrange your cookies on a baking dish in a square formation. I put 2 rows of 3 cookies.

  3. Spread 1 TBSP of sour cream on top of the cooks so that it covers the tops.

  4. Then, dunk another layer of cookies and add them on top of the sour cream layer. Repeat these steps until you have a 3 layer cookie stack. Top of the cake with one last layer of sour cream.

  5. To make the chocolate sauce, you'll need to heat up 1/4 cup of chocolate chips in a pan on medium/low heat. Add 4 TBSP of heavy cream and 3 TBPS of butter to the sauce and melt until smooth.

  6. Pour your chocolate sauce over your cake so it covers the entire cake.

  7. Top off with sprinkles and pearled sugar and refrigerate for 4 hours or more.

  8. Slice into small squares and serve!
