Is there anything better than a GIANT skillet cookie? I can’t think of anything:)

My Andes Mint Cookies are VERY popular, especially during the holiday months, so I decided to create a little spin off of my original recipe and make an Andes Mint Skillet Cookie. The bigger the cookie, the better:)

The giant chocolate cookie is baked in a skillet and when it comes out of the oven, you place Andes Mints all over the top of the warm cookie. When the mints start to melt, use a knife to spread them into an even layer. The mints create a mint chocolate frosting that is incredible.

The chocolate cookie is rich, gooey, and so good served warm with vanilla or mint ice cream.

It’s the ULTIMATE chocolate mint dessert! Kids and adults love it!

Ingredients

  • All-Purpose Flour– never pack your flour when measuring. I fluff, spoon, and level!
  • Cocoa Powder– can use Dutch processed or regular unsweetened cocoa.
  • Baking Soda– make sure it is fresh.
  • Sea salt– to balance out all of the sweetness.
  • Butter– I use unsalted butter.
  • Sugar– brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  • Eggs– use large eggs that are at room temperature.
  • Vanilla extract– use pure vanilla extract for best results.
  • Chocolate Chips– you can also use chocolate chunks. I prefer semi-sweet chocolate in this recipe.
  • Andes Mintsthe famous mints in the shiny green wrapper! You will need 2 boxes.

  • Remove from the oven and place the Andes mints evenly on top of the skillet cookie while it’s still warm. Let the mints sit for a few minutes. When the mints are soft and starting to melt, spread the mints with a butter knife. The mints will create a chocolate mint frosting for the giant cookie.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Cut into slices and serve with ice cream so it can melt into the warm cookie. Dessert heaven!
