Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

I am pretty darn confident that this ooey, gooey, rich and chewy chocolate chip skillet cookie recipe will put a smile on your face. It’s rich and decadent, but if you are looking to indulge, you should totally feel happy while doing it. Consider this skillet cookie a judgement free zone, grab a piece of this chocolate goodness and dig in!
The recipe suggests a mixture of dark and milk chocolate, but use what you have or what you like best; dark, milk, semi-sweet, white, or mix it up with butterscotch or peanut butter chips. We won’t judge!
