Double chocolate giant skillet cookie – a big bickie that you bake in a frying pan!

Giant double chocolate bickie



I bake most days so generally the family is pretty blasé about my baked treats. This giant double chocolate skillet cookie is the exception. Upon pulling it from the oven I was met with a chorus of ‘oooh, yum!’, ‘that looks amazing!’, ‘I’m going to eat the whole thing’ etc etc.

Miss 10 adores white chocolate, so I used white choc chips for her. The Hungry Dad and I love dark chocolate so added them for us. Miss 8 has yet to meet a type of chocolate she didn’t adore so she would be thrilled with anything with a trace of cocoa in it.

As always, the simple things in life are often the best – this recipe is basically one huge chocolate chip cookie that you bake in a skillet / frying pan in the oven. Ensure that your pan has a metal handle – do not place a plastic-handled pan in the oven unless you want a toxic, stinking mess/ house fire/ both.

This easy baking recipe uses common ingredients you probably have in the pantry. Even if you do need to buy them to bake this, rest assured that you will use them for many, many other baking recipes.

Eating this giant chocolate skillet cookie warm from the oven was a highlight of my day – it is gooey and delicious and so utterly scrumptious that I may have eaten a great proportion of it without realising. Might just have to bake this again soon…


1/4 cup caster sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

85 grams unsalted butter, diced, at room temperature

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

1 cup plain flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup white choc chips

1/4 cup dark choc chips

Double chocolate frying pan cookie


Preheat oven to 180 Celsius and thoroughly spray a 20cm round oven-proof frying pan / skillet with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl use a silver spoon to beat together butter, vanilla and both sugars then beat in the egg until just combined.

Tip in the in flour, baking soda and all the chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Scrape into the pan and use an off-set spatula to even out the top.

Bake until cookie is light golden brown and just starting to set in the centre, around 18 minutes.

Let cool 5 minutes then slice into wedges to serve.

    could you send that over for my breakfast please. The one thing to remember as well is to not touch that hot handle with your hands 🙂

      What a sweet way to start the day 🙂 Yes, oven mitts are a must for this!

    Who doesn’t like a chocolate chip cookie especially one like you made. Good that you satisfied all members of your family 🙂 I make a big brownie in my cast iron pan – need to post it too.

    MMMMM that looks amazing!!! I made something similar once: Baked a giant cookie on a pizza tray in the oven and then covered it in melted chocolate, marshmallows, mascarpone and grated chocolate for the ultimate chocolate pizza!!!

      OK, you need to send me a piece of this next time you make it! Sounds so rich and lush 🙂

    This looks so good. I can almost smell its aroma in your kitchen. I’m going to pin the recipe knowing full well that I cannot bake it unless I’ve houseguests. Left to my own devices, your cookie would never see its first sunrise. 🙂
