  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 8 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips or other chocolate chips or candy
  • Reddi-Wip for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. You will need a 6.25” mini cast iron skillet to make this cookie as shown. If you don’t have a skillet, you can use a 6” cake pan, and 8x4” loaf pan, or make individual cookies in a muffin pan. If you are using a skillet, cake, or loaf pan, spray it with nonstick cooking spray. If you’re using a muffin pan, use liners for easy removal and serving (it will probably make about 4 muffin sized cookies).
  • Melt butter in a large bowl. Stir in both sugars, then egg yolk, extract, baking soda and salt. Carefully stir in the flour then mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Optional: add 1/3 cup of ANY kind of chips or candy instead of the mini chips called for, if you wish.
  • Bake the mini cast iron skillet for about 18-24 minutes, or until the edges are puffed and the center no longer looks translucent. Using another pan will affect baking time.
  • Serve warm, with lots of Reddi-Wip and sprinkles.
