Warm Chocolate Chunk Cookie

Anne Byrn | January 14, 2020

Hands-down, this is the one-skillet dessert that brings everyone to the table. No matter how many of your guests say they’re not eating dessert, if you pull this warm cookie from the oven, place it on a trivet in the middle of the table, then pile on ice cream, it’s almost impossible to resist. The trick is not to overbake it—keep it “medium rare” so the edges are crispy, but the center is soft and spoonable.

Warm chocolate chuck skillet cookie in a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chunks
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Melt the butter in a 12 Inch Skillet over low heat. Turn off the heat and stir in both sugars into the melted butter. Fold in the eggs and vanilla. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter-sugar mixture and stir until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks.
  3. Run a wet paper towel around the edges of the pan to clean them up. Scatter the nuts over the top of the batter.
  4. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the edges are lightly browned and the center is still a little soft to the touch, 25-30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
