Short And Sweet. Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie.

Holy mother of all that is Short and Sweet.

This Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie is completely, utterly insanely easy and, likewise, insanely delicious.

You stir together all of the standard chocolate chip cookie ingredients in a skillet on the stove top. Transfer to the oven.

That is it.

One half hour later you have the mother of all cookies.

If you love chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven when the dough is soft and the chocolate is melting, then you will drool over this skillet version.

Even if right out of the oven cookies are not your thing, you will love a slice of this cooled and eaten for breakfast (with ice cream of course) like I did this morning.

Note: The following recipe calls for an 8 inch cast iron skillet. I only have a 10 inch one, so I doubled the ingredients. More cookie. More happiness.

Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie


4 oz butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup bittersweet chocolate, large chips or cut into chunks


1. Preheat oven to 350℉.

2. Melt butter in an 8 inch cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let rest until pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.

2. Add egg to the butter and sugar mixture, and stir. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks.

3. Bake skillet in the oven for 15-25 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream. I also had some caramel sauce that I threw on top. Why not?

    I’ve been looking for a special treat for our 8-yr-old grandson who is coming for his first all-by-himself visit in early July. This just might be it! Thanks for the idea, Tricia.

    Tricia, I’m a bit confused… said you doubled the ingredients, since you had a 10 ” skillet, but your photos only show 1 stick of butter melting……so, is the ingredient list already doubled? I need an answer quickly, if possible, since the first stick of butter is melting, and I’m not sure if I should add another…..Thanks!
