Why You'll Love This Recipe
This soft and gooey peanut butter cookie is filled with dark chocolate chips for that classic chocolate and peanut butter combo that everyone loves so much! Then, I top it with Lake Champlain Organic Milk Chocolate Caramel Hearts that are filled with caramel when broken open. I top this with a scoop of Cosmic Bliss Peanut Butter Bliss Ice Cream, that uses grassfed dairy. This is the perfect Valentine’s Day Cookie Skillet to share with your family!
How to Make a Valentine’s Day Cookie Skillet
Preheat your oven to 300°F. I like to soft bake cookie skillets, so I bake them a lot lower than traditional cookies.
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.
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.
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!
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!
I like to top this with a scoop of ice cream and just dig in with spoons!
Ingredients for Valentine’s Day Cookie Skillet
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
