Twix x 2 = GIANT TWIX Cast Iron Skillet Cookie

Twix should I include? Just Twix bars or chocolate chips…or both? Why not both? So, Twix times 2 = Twix bars plus chocolate chips.

 

Rough chop the Twix bars for the filling and add more on top for a tasty treat. A mixture of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chips enhance the flavors of the candy bars.

 

Whisk and stir the ingredients together in your mixing bowl – no electric mixer needed. Melted butter makes it much easier to incorporate all the ingredients along with the sugars and other dry ingredients. When you’re ready to stir in the flour mixture, switch to a heavy duty spatula to combine. Just don’t overmix the cookie dough.


You don’t need to stir up a huge recipe of 3-5 dozen cookies to enjoy this GIANT cookie. Use less ingredients to get the sweet enjoyment of chocolate. Just use a 5-6” cast iron skillet to make the one cookie that serves 3-6 people. Then decorate it with more Twix bars and enjoy with a friend or family.

 

This cast iron skillet cookie serves 3-6 people, depending on how large you slice the pie and what you use for toppings.

 

Prepare your cast iron skillet:

Cut a circle of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the skillet, leaving long paper “handles” on four sides to make it easy to lift out after it has baked and cooled.

 

Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.

 

Gather up your Ingredients:

 ¼ C Sugar

 ¼ C Brown sugar

2 t Vanilla extract

¼ C Butter, melted

1 Egg yolk

½ C Flour

¼ t Baking soda

¼ t Salt

½ C Chocolate chips, semi-sweet

 

Twix Filling:

¼ - ½ C Twix bars, rough chopped

¼ C Chocolate chips, milk chocolate

 

Twix Topping:

¼ - ½ C Twix bars, rough chopped

6 Twix bars, small or mini sized

 

Make and Bake:

-In a mixing bowl, whisk the sugar, brown sugar together.

-Add and stir in the melted butter until completely combined.

-Stir in the egg yolk, whisking to combine completely.

-Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt, then stirring with a spatula or wooden spoon to combine well.

-Add the chocolate chips, stirring to distribute evenly.

-Make sure the parchment paper is in the skillet.

-Spread half of the cookie dough into the skillet from side to side. Set the other half aside.

-Sprinkle the Twix candy bar chunks and chocolate chips on the bottom cookie dough, leaving about a half inch space all around the outside edge of the dough.

-Form the other half of the cookie dough into a circle to fit onto the top of the hazelnut spread.

-Lay it on top of the Twix/chocolate chip filling, pressing the edges to help seal the filling between the two cookie layers.

-Bake at 350F degrees for 18-22 minutes.

-Take the skillet cookie out of the oven and allow to cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes.

-Top it with the broken-up Twix bars, allowing them to melt a little bit. After the cookie cools a bit, arrange the mini-Twix bars on top. (If you add the mini-Twix bars too soon they could melt into the cookie.)                                                    

-A scoop of your favorite caramel ice cream and caramel sauce drizzled over all makes this an even more decadent dessert to share with your bestie.

 

How about a larger cast iron skillet cookie:

-I have even tripled the recipe and baked it in a 9-10” cast iron skillet. It needs to be baked a bit more…try it at the same temp for about 30 minutes. Check it at the 25-minute mark. It should be golden brown when it’s done.

-If you think the amount of dough is too much for your skillet, just bake up a few individual cookies alongside your skillet cookie.

 

Storage:

-Store it in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days…if it even lasts that long.

-Freeze the unbaked cookie dough for up to a month as long as it’s wrapped in an airtight container. I like to tightly wrap it in plastic wrap, then in a sealable plastic bag. To thaw, allow it to thaw, unwrapped, in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for an hour or so.

-Freeze the baked cookie for a couple of weeks wrapped and stored in an airtight container. I freeze it undecorated. Then thaw at room temp without unwrapping it until it’s thawed. Decorate it for a birthday or just for every day. 


Skillet cookies baked in cast iron pans are so easy to make and don’t take much for ingredients. They are convenient for one or up to 6. They can be decorated or frozen for eating later. However you prepare your skillet cookie, “Bake your own Memories!”
