Is it just me, or does a cookie, especially a peanut butter laced chocolate chip cookie, taste better out of a skillet? I've always just made normal cookies, or cookie bars, but I recently got into making skillet cookies, and this chocolate skillet cookie is the real deal. I tried so many different variations until I found the gooiest of them all. And I'm happy to report this ticks all the boxes. It has crispy edges, a gooey center, a hint of peanut butter and whole lot of chocolate.
These are the absolute best chocolate chip cookies bars, and I'll tell you why. They are super easy to make. So easy, in fact, that I usually bake these to curb midnight dessert cravings. This recipe comes together in one bowl and requires no heavy lifting or whisking. These cookie bars turn out perfectly crispy around the edges and have a gooey center you'll be fighting over. This recipe is perfect for making a skillet cookie, although I prefer cutting it into tiny bars. Who am I kidding, I usually end up digging into the baking dish with my spoon, no bars in sight.
