I'm the first one to say I am not the biggest sweets person. I love a good tiramisu, and I can absolutely appreciate a cupcake, but I don't NEED it. One of the desserts that I have fallen in love with making is a cookie, and a skillet cookie to be exact. I've only made two of them in my life, but I have to admit, this recipe for a kitchen sink skillet cookie is outrageously delicious.
Skillet cookies actually take less energy than making traditional cookies!
Skillet cookies generally use the same batter that a traditional cookie recipe would use, except the major difference is that the end result is one large, warm, soft, and delicious cooke in a skillet form. You can definitely turn this recipe into smaller cookies, approximately 24-26 regular size. The fun of making skillet cookies is that it's easy to share, and makes for a perfect dessert for a holiday or a brunch. All you need is a skillet!
You'll start by greasing a cast-iron skillet with some butter or cooking spray and set it aside. Preheat the oven to 375º. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until it's light and fluffy, approximately 3-5 minutes. Crack in the eggs and whisk to combine. Pour in the vanilla and whisk again. To the wet ingredients, pour in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Fold in with a spatula until half of the batter is formed. Crush the chocolate pretzels and add to the batter, and pour in the m&ms, peanut butter cups, and chocolate chips. Continue to fold in the ingredients until fully combined. Once the batter is formed, pour into the pre-greased cast-iron skillet. Push the batter flat and around the entire surface of the cast-iron skillet, making sure there is an even distribution. Top with extra chocolate chips and m&ms. Bake for 30 minutes. Once done, let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
I would be lying if I said I didn't eat at least four spoonfuls of this delicious skillet cookie when I made it for my son's birthday a few weeks ago. It's insanely chewy, with hints of crunch, salt, sweet, and overall perfect mouthfeel a cookie should be. I can't wait to hear what you think of this one!
This skillet cookie will bring you all the way back to childhood with all of the delicious mix-ins included! My kitchen sink skillet cookie is everything your chocolate lover heart desires: crunchy, salty, sweet, and peanut buttery. I mean, what more could you crave?
