If you are a big Snickers candy bar fan like I am, then you will dig right into this delicious skillet cookie! Making a skillet cookie is easier than making individual cookies and what is not to love about those crisp edges and the soft center?! I love my skillet cookie fresh out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream on top, and it literally tastes just like a Snickers candy bar in cookie form. Thinking of Mother’s day made me think of Snickers candy bars because my Mom loved Snickers so much she would hide them around the house for herself. So, get baking and treat Mom or a loved one to this indulgent Snickers skillet cookie treat!

Snickers Skillet Cookie (made with chocolate chip cookie dough)
- 10 inch cast Iron skillet (linked below)
- Mixing bowl (linked below)
- measuring cups (linked below)
- Cutting board (linked below)
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour leveled
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped Snickers candy bars
Additional toppings (optional)
- chocolate sauce *see below for recipe
- caramel sauce *see note
- finely chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 350.
- Cream softened butter and the sugars together in a large mixing bowl until well combined and smooth. Add the beaten eggs and vanilla, then stir to combine.
- Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well to incorporate the dry ingredients, then do a roll test: roll the cookie dough into a ball between your palms-if the dough is too sticky, add another 1/4 cup of flour, or just enough so that you can roll the cookie dough into a ball without it sticking to your palm. Fold in the chopped Snickers candy bar pieces.
- Press the cookie dough into the bottom of a greased 10 inch cast iron skillet, then bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
- Prepare the peanuts by chopping them into small bits. Prepare the chocolate and caramel sauces (if using homemade sauces). Drizzle the sauces over the top of the skillet cookie, then sprinkle the finely chopped peanuts over top. Enjoy!
Equipment needed for this Snickers Skillet Cookie:
- Cast Iron Skillet I used a 10 inch cast iron skillet for this Snickers skillet cookie. A ten inch produces a nice and thick skillet cookie, but a 12 inch skillet could also be used for a thinner skillet cookie.
- Mixing bowl My preference is to use my stainless steel mixing bowls for their durability and dish washer friendliness.
- Measuring cups You will need a set of measuring cups to measure out the ingredients needed for this Snickers skillet cookie.
- Cutting board I like to use my plastic, dish washer friendly cutting board for chopping the peanuts into small bits on.

Ingredients needed for this Snickers skillet cookie: Vanilla extract, butter, egg, brown sugar, granulated sugar, peanuts, baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour, Snickers candy bars, caramel sauce, chocolate chips for melting, plus milk or cream (not shown), or store bought chocolate sauce.
Caramel sauce recipe. I like to go with an easier caramel sauce that is a brown sugar based sauce, but feel free to use your favorite caramel sauce recipe or store bought caramel sauce.
2 ingredient Chocolate sauce: I used this recipe for the chocolate drizzle and it was very easy to make!
Step 1: Cream butter and sugars together until well combined and smooth. Then whisk in the egg and vanilla extract until the mixture is somewhat fluffy.
For the best results, be sure to use room temperature butter and also a room temperature egg, which prevents the butter from seizing due to exposure to cold temperatures. You can soften the butter by microwaving it for 5-10 seconds (the amount of time may vary, be sure not to over soften the butter if using this method). You can also warm up an egg by placing it in a glass or deep dish and covering it with hot tap water. After the egg has sat in the hot water for ten minutes, it is ready to use.
Step 2: Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt to the creamed mixture. Mix well until the ingredients are well incorporated and a ball can be formed with the dough. Gently fold in the Snickers candy bar pieces.
Step 3: Press the cookie dough into the bottom of a 10 inch cast Iron skillet, then bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the skillet cookie is lightly browned on the edges and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 4: Prepare the chocolate sauce, caramel sauce and chopped peanuts. Once the Snickers skillet cookie is cooled, drizzle the sauces over top and sprinkle the finely diced peanut bits over top. Enjoy!
This skillet cookie can be frozen in an airtight container or zip-lock bags for several months, or you can keep the skillet cookie in an airtight container at room temperature for several days as well.
