Use An Oven Safe Skillet to make this candy skillet cookie

This entire cookie is made in a large cast-iron skillet or an ovenproof skillet.  The butter and sugars are melted on the stove.  Once the other ingredients are added the cookie is baked. The cookie is truly simple to make and turns out 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.  

First Step: Melt Butter and Sugars

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees
  • In an oven-safe skillet, melt the butter and sugars.
  • Allow the butter to cool down until it is just warm. This is a very important step. If the butter is too hot when you add the eggs, they will cook.

Second Step: Eggs

  • Mix in two beaten eggs.
  • Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Third Step: Dry Ingredients

  • Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt with a whisk.
  • Stir in the flour mixture with the butter and sugar mixture. The batter will become thick.

Fourth Step: Candy

  • Chop the candy into pieces and fold the candy bars into the cookie dough.
  • Next, press the cookie dough down into the skillet.
