Units Scale
  • 6 tablespoons room temperature butter (salted)
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • *optional* 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 6 1/2 inch skillet with non stick cooking spray
  2. In a large bowl, combine room temperature butter, brown sugar, and an egg yolk with an electric mixer or wooden spoon
  3. Next, add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar into the wet ingredients and mix until there are no traces of flour
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips, then dump the cookie dough into your prepared skillet
  5. Use your fingers to press it into an even layer, and bake for 11-13 minutes, it should still look gooey
  6. Carefully take the cookie out of the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes on a wire cooling rack
  7. Top with a scoop of ice cream and dive in


  • Use salted butter
  • Grease your cast iron pan
  • Don't overmix your cookie dough
  • Substitute the brown sugar with a sugar free version or coconut sugar
  • Don't overbake- the cookie will look underdone, but the cast iron hold heat and there will be residual cooking
  • Let it rest for a few minutes
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for 2-3 days
