Birthday Skillet Cookie

The most perfect dessert of all time is a warm, gooey, gigantic chocolate chip cookie filled with rainbow chips and topped with ice cream. How can it possibly get better than this?!

It’s my birthday! And I’m celebrating here on Something Swanky with a week dedicated to all my favorite desserts deemed birthday-worthy. Basically, prepare yourselves for a slew of chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and a ridiculous amount of sprinkles. Because I’m obsessed 💁🏻.

Kicking things off with this Birthday Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie was obviously necessary. Everyone knows that chocolate chip cookies are my greatest weakness. And a chocolate chip cookie bigger than my face topped with vanilla ice cream and sprinkles? *swoon*

If big, gooey chocolate chip cookies baked in a skillet served with a heap of sprinkles aren’t your thing… you may be in the wrong place.

A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • In case you didn’t know…  you don’t have to bake this in a skillet! I mean, YES, it is in fact a skillet cookie. And baking it in a cast iron skillet is going to give you a crispier crust, gooier center, and slightly enhance the flavor of the outside of the cookie. BUT it’s not the final word in cake-sized cookies. Feel free to use this same recipe in a 10-inch cake pan, but be prepared to adjust the baking time.
  • I used Wilton Rainbow Chip Crunch sprinkles, because I heart them. But you could also use any multi-colored sprinkles instead.
  • Something I’ve been wanting to try but didn’t do this time around: spread half of the dough in the bottom of the skillet and top with a layer of chocolate chips before spreading the rest of the dough on top of the chocolate chips. Supposedly this makes for one amazing chocolate filled cookie!
