Mom confession: I know that, as a parent, I’m supposed to be really good about letting my kids help in the kitchen. Honestly, I should probably be awesome about it considering that food is how I earn a living and that I homeschool, so it’s my job to teach these little people how to be functioning adults.

The truth, though? I hate it. Kids in the kitchen is just not my thing.

They’re in my way and they’re slow and they constantly ask to lick things.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I let them help. I just have to mentally prepare myself for it. I don’t like the surprise can I help with dinner attacks. Dinner time is hard enough without little people running under my feet and asking to squirt ketchup all over everything.

So, I psyche myself up for baking with the kids as often as possible, because I know they love it. This Skillet Cookie was the perfect kids in the kitchen project! It’s easy, there is stirring, which we all know is the best part of cooking if you’re a child, and it makes one gigantic cookie. Who doesn’t love gigantic cookies?

The best part? Everyone grabbing a spoon and digging in together! Who needs plates? The kids’ germs are already all up in the cookie anyway. You may as well just embrace it at this point.

I used three kinds of Hershey’s Kisses chocolates for this recipe. Original milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and caramel filled kisses are loaded up in this easy recipe. This recipe is adapted from Sophistimom. I love that she created a cookie with no mixer or extra bowls needed. I’ve changed up her recipe by adding extra brown sugar, more vanilla, and cornstarch for an extra soft and chewy cookie. Like I said, this is an easy recipe that requires no mixer. Everything gets mixed up right in the 8-inch Cast Iron Skillet
for easy clean up, too! Don’t forget to top your cookie with loads of ice cream, hot fudge, and caramel sauce to make things extra delightful.

    I feel ya on hating kids in the kitchen! I don’t have any actual kids, but I have a husband. Same thing right? ;) I seriously am in love with this skillet cookie. I don’t think I could wait 5 minutes for it to cool…so worth the burned mouth.

    Haha, love your honesty! I have to “plan” for it. I do so much of my baking during the day, at MY speed, that I need to make sure I’m prepared to move in slow motion when it comes to baking with my kids. I also have to make sure my husband is home so he can “clean up” the aftermath.
    And this skillet cookie? Ummm, yes please. I think it would count as dinner. It’s served in a skillet….

    Baking with kids honestly has never really made it into my baking skill set. I have the fear of one of them getting to one of my appliance or something >_<

    Maybe I should take a left out of your book and tough it out!n This cookie is calling me. I am drooling!

    My mom hated having us in the kitchen too-but she just never let us help really, so good job suppressing your own feelings about it so your kiddos get to help!

    I LOVE how you’ve adapted this recipe, it looks CUHRAAAAZY good!

    I want Hershey kisses skillet, two forks, and one person who I love very VERY dearly to go to town on this gooey goodness with me! (and no judgement on the kids in the kitchen–I feel like I have to supervise my husband, so I can’t even imagine with kiddos!)

    Ok, but this cookie?!? Want it!! So awesome!

    That’s how I feel about The.Boy being in the kitchen!! He’s only allowed if I’ve taken a valium first. And planned some easy, pointless task for him to do.

    I want to shove my face in this.

    What a glorious cookie skillet! I think I need this for breakfast tomorrow!

    And I’m totally with you on the kids in the kitchen situation. I want to be the cool aunt that lets her niece and nephews help make cookies but they make such a mess and it’s just a million times more work on your end!

    Hahahaha! I just couldn’t help but laugh as I was reading this. I seriously feel like I could have written it. Kids helping in the kitchen gives me the shivers. Surprise attack helps are the worst…I agree that we need to be mentally ready for the craziness that happens when they help. Is it bad that I do most of my baking after my kids go to bed? Although I must say it is getting better as they get older. (LOL just trying to redeem myself) I might need this entire skillet cookie after a baking session! I LOVE how gooey it is…kid germs and all!

    Oh seriously you and I are the same person. Can we move in together and just love off of chocolate and cookies? I think we could survive for a few days at least. And it would be quiet.

    Let me tell you, any dessert that looks this amazing and doesn’t require any extra mixing bowl is an instant soulmate to me. Incredible! (And I laughed about the kids in the kitchen thing…I’ve just had to throw up my hands and let them in – although there are definitely angels singing when I am in the kitchen by myself.)

    Can you bake this in a pan ?

    @laura, Sure! As long as it’s oven safe and similar in size. :)

    Can I bake these in 5 1/2 inch iron skillets? How long do you think I should do it? Just until browned around the edges?

    [Reply]

    Karly Reply:

    Hi @Laura!

    Yep, these would be fine in smaller pans (assuming you’re splitting the recipe between two pans). I’m not sure how long it will take, just keep an eye on them! Better to undercook than overcook when it comes to cookies! :)

    I’ve FINALLY joined the cast iron skillet family and just discovered the skillet cookie! Yahoo! Can I make this in a larger skillet and expect a thinner cookie, or should I alter the recipe? I have a 12″ skillet.

    Karly Reply:

    @Jean Springer,

    I think that would work, but you’ll definitely need to adjust the bake time. You could also double the recipe for the larger pan. :)
