Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 300°F. I like to soft bake cookie skillets, so I bake them a lot lower than traditional cookies.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer add the butter, cane sugar, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Cream until there are no chunks of butter. Then the peanut butter and eggs get added in, and mix just for a few rotations. You don’t want to overmix peanut butter whenever you are using an organic/natural peanut butter that naturally separates, as it can separate in your dough if it is overmixed.

Step 3

Next, add in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix to combined. And, then add in the chocolate chips and mix together to combine.

Step 4

I use a 10-inch skillet for this recipe. I press the cookie dough into the skillet evenly, and then I add the chocolate hearts right on top where I want them. Don’t press them in so much as the cookie will rise, so if you press them in too much, the cookie dough could end up covering some of the hearts!

Step 5

Bake the cookie for 45 minutes or until it’s golden brown and done in the center. If you like really doughy cookies, then feel free to bake a few minutes less! (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

Step 6

I like to top this with a scoop of ice cream and just dig in with spoons!

FAQ's

Can I use unsalted butter?

Yes, just add ¼ teaspoon salt to the recipe.

What if I don't have chocolate hearts?

That's okay, you can still make this without them and it will still be a delicious chocolate peanut butter cookie skillet!

How should I store leftovers?

If you have leftover, you should remove the cookie from the skillet. Break it up, if need be, and store in an an airtight container.
