This Candy Bar Skillet Cookie Dessert is made using your leftover candy. Everything is made and baked in one skillet. Making it quick and easy.
Skillet cookies are super easy to make because everything is mixed and then baked all within one skillet. It is a true “one skillet” recipe. We had so much candy leftover from the holidays I could not wait to try making a skillet cookie with leftover candy. Any chocolate or chocolate candy bars will work in this easy cookie. Simply chop 3 cups of candy for this recipe into large pieces. This entire dessert is made directly in a large cast iron skillet or an oven proof skillet. You will melt the butter and sugar on the stove. Next, add all the other ingredients and bake. It is truly that simple and turns out over the top amazing each time. If you love chocolate chip cookies, but do not enjoy nor have the time to bake cookies this recipe is for you. Be careful, it is so easy it will be addicting. It truly is a great way to use extra candy and make a wonderful dessert. While the cookie is still warm, I cut a piece and added some caramel and hot fudge. You could also add some ice cream. It turned out amazing! This Candy Bar Skillet Cookie is my new favorite cookie.
