Patriotic Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie is much like a Pizookie. A giant, thick & chewy chocolate chip cookie baked in an iron skillet with patriotic M&M’s. I added a secret ingredient too. It’s absolutely INCREDIBLE! (& so easy too- mix, dump, bake, enjoy)
I confess, I have a serious thing for an oooey, gooey, chewy chocolate chip cookie. Right out of the oven, when they are all warm & the chocolate just drips & gets everywhere when it’s pulled apart. Oh boy! Do you know what I’m talking about? Do you love it too?
The other day I was REALLY craving a chocolate chip cookie. I had the best of intentions to make a batch & take half of them over to the new neighbors. But my favorite cookie recipe requires overnight chilling. I hadn’t planned for it & it wasn’t in the schedule. Not that it wouldn’t be totally worth the wait. I just hadn’t budgeted my time accordingly. When I was feeling like it, there wasn’t time to chill the dough. So I decided to change up the plan & create a fabulous, Pizookie inspired, chocolate chip skillet cookie. I had been making them for years but started twisting the recipe a couple years ago. Then last year I saw this one from Sally & gave it a try. It was already pretty similar to my original recipe, with the exception of my secret ingredient.

Since this isn’t exactly the kind of treat you take to neighbors, I decided that I could just plan for the regular cookies another weekend. I wanted this NOW & oh boy it was good. I had forgotten just how amazing these skillet cookies are. Super chewy on the outer edges, a lot like a brownie. Yep- do I have your attention now? Yeah, it’s like that. I added a couple tablespoons of my favorite French Vanilla creamer. Because I’m always looking for ways to sneak that into just about everything.

Now you can top this delectable treat with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. That’s always a fabulous pairing. But this time, I added just a mountain of fresh whipped cream. That was a perfect choice because it was light & yet still added a little creaminess to each bite.
For this recipe you will need…
- granulated sugar
- light brown sugar
- vanilla extract
- milk or coffee creamer
- all-purpose flour
- baking soda
- white chocolate chips
- M&M’S Patriotic colors
- ice cream whipped cream, chocolate or caramel syrup for topping
Look at all the GOODNESS! This is one you’ll make year after year!
