If I had to name top 10 foods I am obsessed with, this skillet cookie would definitely be in that list. What I love about it is that it is super easy to make, super quick and it tastes like a fancy dine-in restaurant dessert.

I am using a 16cm Cast Iron Skillet and I have used a combination of semi-sweet chocolate and Whittaker’s 72% Ghana Dark Chocolate. You can replace it with your favourite milk chocolate, if you are not into dark chocolate.

I leave the butter on kitchen bench for a few hours to bring it to room temperature, but if you forgot to do that, just microwave it until it is slightly soft, try to not completely melt it (I have done it many times, but I promise your cookie will survive so not drama!). You just want it a little soft so you can combine it with sugar easily.

If I can’t finish the whole thing in one go, I usually cover it and leave it on the bench. Next day, you can either take it out of the skillet and heat it up in microwave or heat up in your oven. Happy Indulgence!!!


  • Cook Time: 10-12 mins
  • Cook Temp. : 180°C (356F)
  • Serves : 1-2


Cookie Dough

  • 1/4Cup Unsalted Butter (at room temperature)
  • 1/4Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 80g All-purpose flour
  • 1/8tsp Salt
  • 1/4tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/3Cup (60g) Chocolate Chips
  • 1tbsp Chocolate chunks (Whittaker's 72% Dark Ghana)
  • 1/8tsp Flaky Salt


  • Turn your oven on at 180°C (356F).
  • Add butter at room temperature to a bowl.
  • Add brown sugar to the butter and combine until smooth.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract to the butter sugar mix and combine until everything is mixed.
  • To the wet mix, add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and fold everything in.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips. Keep the chocolate chunks on the side, only add the chips at this stage. We will use the chunks to sprinkle on top on the dough.
  • Chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
  • Transfer the cookie dough to a skillet (or a baking dish if you don't have a skillet) and even out the top surface. I'm using a 16cm Cast Iron Skillet.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate chip you kept on the side on top of the cookie dough and some flaky salt.
  • Bake the cookie at 180°C (356F) for 10-12 minutes in a pre-heated oven. You are after golden brown edges and soft gooey centre.
  • Serve it hot with Vanilla Ice-cream on top. Enjoy :D
