Google returns 376,000 hits for “a treasure trove” and only 1,020 for “a treasure cove,” though both numbers go down when you search for “a * treasure trove” or “a * treasure cove” (mimicking the structure of the in-the-wild occurrence).

Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary gives an entry for “treasure trove.” Nothing for “treasure cove,” though.
