Double Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie…if those words don’t send a little shiver down your spine then you might not be firing on all cylinders…just saying.

Double Dark Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie is decadent and delicious! |

A warm double chocolate chip cookie falls into a category of desserts that I just cannot resist, so basically I don’t make them very often. One of the first things I ever learned to bake was the classic Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie pie, and I’ve had a weakness for giant cookies ever since. I had to whisk this one away to my daughter after I had my obligatory test slice. It’s fall-to-your-knees good, especially if you sneak a piece before it’s fully cooled and still a little melty in the middle. “Omg” and “this is the best thing I’ve ever eaten”Β  are the stock responses to this thing.

TIP: Be careful not to over bake this skillet cookie, they are relatively thin and will go from just done to over done in a matter of a couple minutes. It’s always better to err on the side of under cooking something like this.

This double chocolate chip skillet cookie is a super easy one bowl recipe, with ingredients you’re likely to have on hand. It’s perfect for last minute snack attacks or unexpected guests.Β Eat it warm for an ooey gooey experience, or let it cool for a firmer bite. Either way, you win πŸ™‚

TIP: To quickly warm up a cold stick of butter, unwrap and cut it in 4 slices, then microwave for 15-20 seconds. To take the chill off a cold egg, put it in a small cup of warm water for a few minutes.

    I just got back from a Royal Caribbean cruise where they served Warm Dark Chocolate Cookie with Ice Cream. This recipe matches it perfectly! I didn’t have dark chocolate chips, so I used 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chips. Instead of the skillet, I divided the dough between 6 ramekins for individual servings, as on the ship. Bake for about 10 minutes, let stand for 5 before topping with ice cream and serving. Perfection! Thank you!

    Hi Sue – I have a 12″ cast iron skillet. How should I adjust the baking time for this? Do you think the cookie will be too thin with this? Thanks! – Kat

      Gosh, I’m not sure Kat, I think it might get a little thin. You could double the recipe and reserve some of the dough for regular cookies?

    Oh gosh, this looks ridiculously good! I definitely have shivers and I definitely want this. I’m picturing myself pulling this out for dessert at our cookout this weekend and everyone digging in with their spoons. There’s nothing better than a warm dessert with a big scoop of cold ice cream. Yum, yum, yum!!

      Yes, you can, just like you can with regular cookies, they will be a little different in flavor and texture, but go for it!

    This is one of those recipes that I can’t have in the house either – I would eat the whole thing or at least until my belly hurt! I can almost smell it baking and taste it with a little cold, creamy ice cream. Wow this would be good right now!

    Toss in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda and salt.

    How much baking powder??? I don’t see it here……

    Does the butter have to be unsalted?

    • Reply
      May 25, 2016 at 11:30 am

      I always use unsalted butter for baking, but if you want to use salted butter, just omit the salt in the recipe, Peggy.

    Looks totally beyond amazing. In some ways I’m glad you live on the opposite side of the country (I would be over-the-top-over-weight) but in many ways I’m NOT. Love that melting ice cream!
