This cookie is unbelievable! It’s a new take on a classic dessert! Pair it with ice cream or milk and you’re in heaven!
I used a skillet chocolate chip cookie recipe from Lodge as a guide. Their recipe calls for a 10 inch skillet and I have a 12 inch. So I added 1/4 to every ingredient (i.e. it called for 1 cup flour I used 1 and 1/4 cup flour). I also had to adjust the cooking time a little. I baked it for 20 minutes on 375, but was worried the top was getting too browned while the inside was still gooey, so I decreased the heat to 350 and baked for another 10 minutes.

- 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 bag M&M’s or chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375 (see note above about cooking time)
- In a large bowl, beat both sugars and butter until smooth. Add the vanilla and eggs one at a time, beating well.
