This Monster Skillet Cookie recipe is a perfect go-to when you want a quick and easy dessert to share with your cookie-loving friends.
Last fall, I spoke to a group of students from my former high school about blogging, cookbook writing, and such. They were such a great group full of questions. I’m sure everyone’s favorite part, though, was making skillet cookies. You can always win over a crowd with freshly baked cookies.
Several times since then, I’ve thought that I should make more skillet cookies. It’s taken me a while, but I’ve got a doozy of a skillet cookie to share with you. This is one serious cookie packed with so many good and irresistible things!
You can use whatever you like as add-ins for this cookie. For the one you see here, I used chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, nuts, toffee bits, mini peanut butter cups, and cinnamon chips. But there are all kinds of things you could use. Coconut, caramel bits, pretzels, crumbled cookies… You get the idea. Get creative with what you have in your pantry!
I like to mix this cookie right in the skillet. It cuts way down on the post-baking clean up, and it’s just simpler to me. If you prefer to mix the dough in a separate bowl and then spread it in the skillet, that’s perfectly fine, too.
As you can see, I topped this cookie with a couple of scoops of ice cream, a little caramel sauce, and a handful of the add-ins I used in the cookie dough. With all the flavor in the cookie, that may be gilding the lily a bit, but I just couldn’t resist going all out for this amazing cookie!
This is the kind of sweet treat that’s meant to be shared with your cookie-loving crowd. It’s perfect for a rainy night at home with family, a Netflix binging marathon, or a celebration with friends. And if you normally have basic baking ingredients in your kitchen, then it’s just the thing for most any impromptu occasion that’s deserving of a treat!
