Skillet Chocolate Chip Brookie

Skillet Chocolate Chip Brookie

Here is a perfect one dish dessert that can be served family style or divided onto individual plates. Either way if you are a chocolate chip cookie lover, (like me) or a brownie lover (like me as well), you will love the combination of both in this deep dish skillet brookie. It has a rich, gooey chocolate-y brownie base with buttery chocolate chip cookie dough swirled and baked on top. It really is the best of both worlds. And what brings it all together is a topping of vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of our salted and chocolate caramel sauces. Two favorite treats, two favorite sauces, one perfect dessert! Enjoy!


Brownie Batter:

  • 1/3 c butter, melted
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c flour

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:

  • 1/4 c butter, softened
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 c flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 c chocolate chips, divided



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Lightly grease a 9-10 inch cast iron skillet and set aside.

For the Brownie Layer:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the sugars and butter and whisk until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until well combined.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla and continue to mix in well.
  4. Fold in the flour and salt and stir until fully incorporated, smooth and thick.
  5. Pour the brownie batter into the bottom of the prepared skillet and smooth until it's evenly spread out.

For the Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer:

  1. In a separate medium bowl, beat together the sugars and butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and continue to mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Fold in half of the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the cookie dough over the brownie batter in the skillet.
  6. Sprinkle on the remaining chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the cookie is golden brown and the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the skillet.
  8. Allow to cool slightly before serving if you want to eat it hot, or cool completely if you don't like melted ice cream!
  9. Top with scoops of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of salted and chocolate caramel sauces.
