You can use chocolate chips or chocolate chunks for this recipe, either the milk, semi-sweet or bitter-sweet ones  or a mix depending on your preferences. The batter is prepared directly in the skillet which makes it really convenient for whenever you are in a hurry and have guests .

How to make Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (180°C). In a 9 or 10 inch (23-25cm) cast iron skillet, melt butter over low heat until fully melted.

Once the butter is melted, remove the skillet from the heat and add both granulated sugar and light brown sugar. Allow it to cool slightly if needed before adding the egg.

Stir in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined. Then, incorporate the dry ingredients: salt, baking soda, and flour. Mix until the batter is smooth and all ingredients are fully combined.

Next, fold in the chocolate chips or chunks until evenly distributed throughout the batter. Spread the batter evenly in the skillet.

Bake the skillet cookie in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden.

Once baked, serve the warm skillet chocolate chip cookie with a scoop of ice cream on top for a delightful treat!
