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”  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. Eat it warm for an ooey gooey experience, or let it cool for a firmer bite. Either way, you win 🙂

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?
