Have you ever wanted an ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie the size of your head? Yeah, same. That’s where the Skillet Double Chocolate Chip Cookie comes in. It’s out of this world delicious and honestly I had a hard time sharing it with my kids! This skillet cookie is perfect because the edges get nice and crispy thanks to the cast iron skillet, but the middle stays soft and warm. 


This is the best skillet cookie you can make! Trust me. I doubled up on the chocolate by adding dye free chocolate pieces from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods so you get a taste of melty chocolate in every bite. Chocolate chips work in the recipe, but if you can get your hands of chocolate chunks like I did here, you’ll understand why adding them makes this skillet cookie next level. Want to knock your crew’s socks off even more? Top it with vanilla ice cream to take it over the top. Is there a better combination than a warm cookie with ice cream? I don’t think so! 


I made this for the first time weeks ago, and my kids went wild for it. They had their spoons out like little vultures ready to go when it came out of the oven! They couldn’t wait. We practically had a spoon war fighting for every bite until all of the sudden the cookie disappeared. While I wouldn’t tout this as one of my healthiest recipes, I try to practice everything in moderation. A skillet double chocolate cookie every now and then is a fun, delicious TREAT so… treat yourself!


While this skillet cookie isn’t something you’d probably want to make for your family every night, I do have some cookie recipes that you can still feel good about eating like Nature CookiesBanana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies or Breakfast Cookies


So, get your spoons out and get ready to dig in and be amazed at how quickly this skillet cookie disappears! Let me know if you make this recipe and tag me on social media @weelicious

  1. 5 stars
    I made this for a group of friends last night and it was a huge hit. I’ve made a different recipe like this before but this one was much better- very soft and just perfect.

  2. When do you add the flakey salt?
    Also, can you use Hawaiian rock salt instead of the flakey salt?

  3. The ingredient list says 1/2 tsp salt then later 1tsp of flaky salt. What are instructions for flaky salt?

  4. Hi! At what point in the recipe is the flakey salt added (last ingredient listed)? Can’t wait to try this!
