Chocolate chip skillet cookie with caramel


Skillet cookies are new to our house.  Roll your eyes if you must.  They’re probably old news but as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a tad late when it comes to the food party!

I enjoy making regular cookies but when the method is even easier, like smoosh dough into a skillet and bake?  Sign me up!  I added a bit of caramel sauce in the middle so when you slice in you can see the glossy ribbon of golden yumminess.

Chocolate chip skillet cookie with caramel
For the caramel
  • 15 caramels unwrapped
