The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Melanie at Melanie Makes.
We’re definitely dessert people in our house. Before going to bed, we always have some type of sweet treat. Bad habit? Perhaps. But I can’t think of a better way to end each day. This Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie couldn’t be easier. I always have the ingredients on hand and it’s definitely requires less hands on time than making a traditional batch of cookies.
A deep dish wedge of chocolate goodness that’s taken just a bit more over the top by adding a scoop of melty ice cream on top.
Rich and decadent and absolutely amazing.
Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
