One-pan Caramel and White Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie

Even if you are not big on cookies, you will love this super simple one pan cookie recipe.
By Diana Mieczan

Yes, you are looking at an enormous cookie full of white chocolate chewy bits and caramel, all made in a pan. Fancy a piece? I dare you.

Since I discovered this gem of a recipe a few months ago, each time our friend (and their kiddos) come over they beg for it. It’s one of the most popular recipes I use because of the way it’s made.


I’ve tried about four different variations so far, you can experiment with all kinds of sweets from dark chocolate to m&m’s or even butter scotch. But for this recipe, I went with a white chocolate/caramel mix, which is Balazs’ favourite. Each time I make this cookie, I feel like a kid playing in her toy-kitchen.

The trick is to not over-sweeten it. So depending on what candy-mix you use, try to balance it out by adding less or more brown sugar to the dough.  You can also serve it with cranberry sauce which gives it a wonderful balance between sweet and sour. The whole making process, including baking in the oven tops half an hour and it’s very easy. One pan will give you about six generous portions.

Believe me, even if you are not big on cookies, you will love this one. The chewy-warm texture of it makes for a perfect finish to a successful evening. Enjoy!

P.S: And for that one night you can forget about calories…It’s so worth every single one of them.

  1. I will miss getting small portions of the cookie mix, making small balls, flattening them…But I don’t mind going big sometime.
    White chocolate is a treat I won’t miss, won’t let this pass…
