Cookie Skillet Bar - Dessert Station

Anyone that knows me that I have an UNGODLY obsession with Chocolate Chip Cookies. I LOVE fresh, soft, chocolate-y cookies. OBSESSED! One of my favorite places to indulge in a chocolate chip cookie happens to be BJ's Brewhouse. I LOVE their chocolate chip pizookie! As much money as I've spent on buying those pizookies, I should own a BJ's. 

I knew I had to recreate one of my favorite desserts at my girl's trip down in Kerrville, Texas - #Toast2Texas.

Check out below on how to recreate your own for your next girl's night in or "just because" party!

Ingredients: Cookie Dough (Chocolate chip is my preferred but feel free to use sugar cookie), Bake-able Toppings - your pick of peanut butter cups, caramel bars, coconut shavings, chocolate chips, M&Ms, etc., Ice Cream, Garnish Toppings - cherries, sprinkles, hot fudge, caramel, gummy bears, etc.

Step one: Oil your mini skillet so your cookie won't stick. I use a spray olive oil. but a teaspoon of any cooking oil will work. Be sure to work it all the way around the skillet and even on the sides.

Step two: Scoop out enough cookie dough to cover the bottom of the skillet. Your thickness should be no more than 2 inches. Flatten it out and fill in any empty spots.

Step three: Add any additional toppings to your cookie - whether it be m&m's a peanut butter cup or more chocolate chips - LOAD IT UP!

Step four: Bake according to suggested time. Typically 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees F. Keep an eye out so that the cookie doesn't overbake and burn. 

Step five:  Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Top with ice cream and any additional toppings your heart desires. My preferred topping? Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream...drool!
