I feel like I need to apologize to you all. Or at least apologize to the button on your pants. This skillet chocolate chip cookie will totally do your diet in. But, trust me when I say it’s so very worth it just like my salted caramel chocolate chip butter bars were. You know that meme that says nothing tastes as good as skinny feels? Yeah, well, I think this skillet chocolate chip cookie probably does.

Full disclosure. Everyone has that one food that they just can’t let sit in the house. For us, it’s chocolate chip cookies. We love them, but we never make them. Ever. Because both of us would eat them round the clock. Seriously, at Christmas time when I have baked dozens of cookies, I have been known to wake up, pad into the kitchen, and eat a cookie before I drink my coffee.

Ok, I lie. Maybe I eatĀ multipleĀ cookies before I drink my coffee.

My husband is the same way. The amount of self control in this house when it comes to cookies is minimal. And seriously laughable. It’s like a good batch of chocolate chip cookies regresses us each into toddlers.

So, needless to say, we baked this cookie, and intended to eat it slowly. Over several days for dessert. And, then I took pictures of the cookie. You know, to share with you all. Well, the cookie didn’t survive the photo shoot.

Like not even a little.

And I’m not sad about that. Not even a little. Because, you guys, this skillet chocolate chip cookie was total cookie perfection. Slightly crisp edges and the perfect gooey, slightly underdone and melty center. It just begs you to attack it with a spoon.

Or a shovel. You know, anything that will get all that melty, chocolatey goodness into your mouth that much faster.

And while ice cream isn’t necessary to top it off, it kind of is. Because this cookie practically begs you to top it with ice cream so that the ice cream will melt into the cookie’s gooey center and create an explosion of total sugary gooey perfection.

Lastly, a pro tip for all you parents out there: I was really thinking that we’d have to hide this cookie from the toddler or eat it either covertly locked into the bathroom or after she went to bed, but nope. I set out some chocolate chunk pieces and she didn’t even touch the cookie. I was seriously feeling like I was winning at life.

Apparently, we also don’t share well when it comes to cookies in this house. Told you, cookies turn us into giant overgrown toddlers.

    I don't know how this is possible but I don't know how I haven't made a skillet cookie yet. These look delicious. I might steal your recipe and make one for myself.

    Holy smokes. I totally agree with you-I can't bake things like this either because I would gain so much weight! This looks soooo good, though. Yum! :)

      Hahaha we have several sizes of cast iron pan and I (by I, I really mean my waistline) wanted to make it in the small pan. I was vetoed by my husband.

    This looks like a restaurant quality dessert! I can't think of anything more delicious, especially paired with vanilla ice cream. I will definitely be making this on my next "cheat day"!

    Cookies don't last long in your house either, huh? Good to know I'm not the only one who eats cookies BEFORE I have my coffee. :) So, your skillet cookie looks amazing! Chocolate chip cookies are the best. I am for sure making this in the near future!
