cast-iron-pan chocolate chip cookie bars

The Interwebs tell me that skillet cookies are a big thing. Certainly they are big cookies, which probably explains why I’ve never made one before. Cooking and baking for just two people, I usually go for treats smaller in size and quantity. Luckily, I don’t think I’ll have a problem finding any takers for extra Cast-Iron Pan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

These are loaded with chopped chocolate (I used a milk and dark combo), dried fruit (I used cherries instead of apricots) and a ton of shedded coconut (I used half sweetened and half unsweetened). All that good stuff makes a sturdy, chewy, dense bar cookie…kind of like a trail bar, actually. Baking them in a skillet gives a nice caramelized bottom and edge bits. I do have a smaller-sized skillet that I use for things like frying eggs and I made a half-recipe of the bars in that. Those crispy edge bits are my favorite part, and I really like these bars with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  2. Cherries would have been great in these. I liked the fact that they were quick and easy to make.

  3. Had I been in France making these I would have had a tiny 6-inch skillet to use. This time around I DIDN”T minify (!!!) and made the full batch. So dangerously good!

  4. We liked ours with ice cream too. I like your cherry substitution. I will have to try that next.

  5. These were good with ice cream! I like the idea of using a combination of milk and dark chocolate with the cherry substitution. I also think using had sweetened and half unsweetened coconut is a great idea – sweetened coconut can be a bit too sweet for me. I threw some cocoa nibs in mine and was quite pleased with the addition.
