Salted Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie is thick and chewy with dark chocolate chunks and flaky sea salt.  It's the easiest cookie you'll ever make!

  • 2 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks reserving 3 tablespoons to press into the top
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt I use [Maldon]


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars with a hand mixer at low speed until incorporated, then at medium high speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla at low speed until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients and beat on low speed until just combined.  Fold in all but 3 tablespoons of the dark chocolate chunks.
  • Spoon the batter into a cast iron skillet (I use a 10 3/4" Le Creuset skillet) and spread until smooth, then press the remaining chocolate chunks into the top.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the middle is just set.  If the top begins to brown too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with the flaky sea salt. Cool completely on a wire rack or until set.
  • Slice and serve with ice cream if desired, and enjoy!


  • If you like you skillet cookie on the gooey side, bake for 20-25 minutes.  If you like yours more set, bake for 25-30 minutes.  Keep in mind that oven temperatures vary, so this is a rule of thumb.
  • If you don't have a cast iron pan, you can certainly use a cake pan.  Grease it well and understand that cooking time will vary depending on what size it is (if it's 8", the cookie will be thicker resulting in a bit more baking time).
  • Change things up by substituting any flavor of chocolate chips, mini M&M's, toffee bits, sprinkles or add nuts!
