I love making skillet cookies. Because when it comes to cookies, bigger is always better.
It’s a fast and easy goofproof recipe that’s sure to be a hit.
No mixer needed, no dough to chill, ready and on the table in 30 minutes, family-friendly, and perfect for events, parties, or holidays.
To make the stir-together dough I used Betty Crocker™ Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix. It’s a great shortcut when you’re short on time, but Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie, Loaded Soft and Chewy M&M Cookie Pie, or Triple Peanut Butter Cookie Pie are all easy recipes from scratch.
My family adored this biggie-sized cookie that’s soft, chewy, buttery, loaded with chocolate chips, and the hot fudge and ice cream on top doesn’t hurt.
They said it’s one of the best cookies I’ve ever made and I’ve made more than a cookie or two in my day.
In case you don’t need a 10-inch cookie at once, what we didn’t eat for dessert the day I made it, I wrapped leftovers in plasticwrap in individually-portioned pieces and they were perfect snacks the next couple days. I actually loved it even more because the hot fudge soaked in, making it even more moist and chocolaty.
It’s such an easy, comforting dessert that’s perfect to pair with an easy dinner recipe like the Easy Pizza Bake I posted earlier in the week. For other great dinner and dessert ideas and pairings, check out the Zucchini-Crusted Buffalo Chicken Nuggets and the Easy Fresh Fruit Tart, a surefire way to keep your kids at the dinner table longer and work in extra veggies and fruit.
