A few days ago I hosted my first grilling party of the season. As I was pondering what to serve for dessert, I decided on a Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie. I also had some chocolate chunks on hand so I decided to throw caution to the wind and add some chunks as well.
Can you have too much chocolate? In this case, I think I did. The skillet cookie was a little too chocolatey for me so I scaled back on some of the chips and chunks. Of course, the grandkids thought it was just right and we had no leftovers. Score!
I usually make individual cookies but I had so much going on and a skillet chocolate chip cookie is much easier to make. I’m all about easy! Of course, you will need to make sure you have premium vanilla ice cream to serve with slices of the warm cookie.

Cast Iron Skillet Collection
I’ve had my cast iron skillets for years. In addition to my 10-inch cast iron skillet, I also have a cast iron cornbread wedge skillet that my mom gave me.
My aunt Jean always made cornsticks when I was growing up so a few years ago I purchased a cornstick pan so I could make them too.
My mini cast iron skillets are favorites too. I can make individual desserts or cornbread in these skillets. They are so cute.
Cast Iron Skillet Care
Most cast iron skillets come seasoned and ready to cook. Just give it a quick rinse and dry thoroughly.
A seasoned cast iron skillet should not be soaked in a sink full of soapy water. It will strip the seasoning and cause the skillet to rust. Rust is the enemy to a cast iron skillet. Of course, these skillets are never placed in the dishwasher.
Many cast iron skillet owners simply wipe a properly seasoned skillet after cooking. If you don’t feel like this is your kind of clean, add a little oil and kosher salt to clean it. Contrary to popular belief, you can even use a mild soap to wash your skillet. Just make sure to rinse and dry thoroughly.
After cleaning your cast iron skillet, rub with a very light layer of cooking oil before storing your skillet in a dry place.
