This Chocolate Hazelnut Skillet Cookie is major in every way, and easy enough to make as a last minute dessert!

I was going to wait and post the recipe for this Skillet Cookie next week.  But I couldn’t wait.

Could.

Not.

Wait.

 

Because, well…it’s a cookie baked in a skillet, topped with ice cream and loads of chocolate hazelnut spread.

Sigh.

 

The granola that I was gonna share with you today didn’t stand a chance against this.

Because granola vs a chocolatey, melty cookie.

Well, is it really a contest?

I promise it’s good granola, though.  I’m sure you’re waiting with bated breath. Ahem.

 

Geez, now the granola sounds so lame.

Ugh.

 

Anyhow.

This cookie. Plop it on your table at the end of a dinner party and let everyone grab a spoon and go to town. It’s that kind of dessert and I love it.

Double dippers rejoice!

I was able to break out my new favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread to make this…

It’s Hershey’s Spreads.  You guys need to give this a try.  I was lucky I didn’t inhale it all with a spoon.

Anyhow, it goes together in just a few minutes.  One bowl.

 

Mix up some melted butter, your chocolate-hazelnut spread, eggs, brown sugar and vanilla….

And then stir in your dry ingredients…

Oh yeah, I added some milk chocolate chips too.  Because….

Spread that into your cast iron skillet.

Let’s talk a minute about your skillet…if it’s well seasoned you won’t need to grease it.  If it isn’t well seasoned you’ll need to grease it lightly.

I haven’t always been a cast iron skillet lover.  Here’s why…I never used a well seasoned one!  Now that mine has some miles on it, it is the second most treasured thing in my kitchen behind my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

So if you have a cast iron skillet that you don’t really love, keep using it.  You can season it on your own.. here’s a link with some instructions.  In my case, I just kept using it.

HERE’s A LINK to the one I own.

I baked mine for about 15 minutes and here’s how it looked…

You want to make sure not to over-bake this.. the gooier the better!!

And of course serve warm with ice cream…

No questions asked; I sure could use a bite (or four) of this cookie!

Well, this has my mouth watering. Too bad I’m on a detox and can’t have this. Wahhh! Guess the granola should sound better to me, but it so doesn’t. In my perfect world, this would be on a detox diet!

Oh gosh, I love me a skillet cookie, and often wonder why I don’t make them more often when in need of a dessert fix.

Guest

This looks and sounds ridiculously good. Can’t wait to try it!

Guest

I have just one small problem. That is a highly insufficient quantity of ice cream for such a large cookie. Come on food blogger, be honest… Did someone dip into her own stash or did a family member raid the freezer? Otherwise there is no excuse! Each person would get like one bite especially after the inevitable meltage! But wow. Looks super yummy!

Looks ymmmm-ummmmy!

I do have a question: If you do not own a skillet, is it possible to use another type of pan?

I have the same question as Joanne Brown. Can it be made in another type of pan?

Guest

Is it cliché to say that I want to dive face first into this skillet? Cause I REALLY do.

I too would like to make it, but need to use a different pan. What size???

Guest

While I totally cannot wait for your granola recipe, I am beyond excited that you posted this skillet cookie! I am borderline unhealthfully obsessed with my cast iron skillet. I have yet to bake anything sweet in it though because I fear it will taste like chicken. And NOBODY wants a cookie that tastes like chicken!

Do you have a separate “baking” skillet? Let me know because I really want to try this!!!! So melty and gooey.

Ok, so I wish I had this for my bday….which was back in Nov.

This looks so good! Would it work to make the dough the night before? I am in charge of birthday treats and was thinking I might make this! I made a skillet cookie before but it didn’t require melting the butter so it worked to make it the night before and cook at work the next day.

Perfect- I made the dough last night and cooked it here at work for birthdays and it was a huge hit! Thanks!!!!

Could we use Nutella instead? Not a big fan of the new Hershey’s chocolate spreads..

Do you have to use an iron skillet or can you use a regular frying pan? I don’t know much about cooking/baking in general, so I’m not sure if there is a fundamental difference between the two that would significantly affect the results!
