Caramel Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie with drizzled caramel on top. I really don’t know how to add to that introduction. It pretty much speaks for itself.

Do you ever go to a restaurant with good intentions of getting the dessert after meal but by the time you eat your meal, you are full. That happens to us a lot. I want to get cookie desserts like this Caramel Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie, but after the meal of chicken (usually) I am full.
Right? Well, never fear, you can make restaurant quality desserts at home. Cheaper too.
Last night, Cora and I went out on a mom/daughter date because the guys in our family were at a Wild Beast Feast. What is a Wild Beast Feast, you ask. Let’s just say it involves meat. And deer heads. And, well, meat. You can read more about it here.
Ladies can come to the feast, but quite honestly, we really don’t want to. We would rather spend our gift cards at Hobby Lobby and shop at Kohl’s (check out some great clearance deals here, we sure did!). We would also rather go to Cracker Barrel. Oh, yum.
Well, when we first sat down, I was hungry. There was thoughts of dessert in my mind. After the meal of chicken strips (told ya 🙂 ), french fries, fried apples, corn bread and biscuits, we were quite full.
Thankfully, we can make this caramel chocolate chip skillet cookie easily and with ingredients you probably already have at home.
Caramel Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
If you don’t have cast iron skillets, you can make this cookie in another type of pan. I do, however, recommend you getting at least one cast iron skillet (like this one) sometime in your life. They are just nice to use for cooking.
To make this cookie, I greased the pan lightly. I know most of the time for cookies, the pan stays ungreased, but this cookie in the skillet does call for a little extra help to keep from sticking. Semi-sweet chocolate chips were preferred for the chip verses milk chocolate but either would work.
The caramel topping is simply an ice cream topping. It is nice to have around the house for uses like this.
