  1. OH MY GOODNESS. This looks like HEAVEN. Pure indulgence, I love it!

    Keep up the great work with your healthy eating! I completely agree that everyone needs a little something sweet every so often!

  2. Kendra, this looks so delicious and indulgent. We’re living in Chiang Mai, a province in Thailand at the moment, where it’s almost impossible to find a house with an oven, so I can’t try this out for my husband, but as soon as we’re back in a western country I will!!!

  3. This looks so delicious! To be honest this even looks better than fresh baked cookies from the oven. I am going to have to give this one a try.

  4. For years I have been wanting a skillet. I think now I need to get one because all these wonderful recipes that use one. I remember my parents always making beans in their skillet. This looks good…especially when there is chocolate in it.

  5. My goodness, this is perfect. Everyone in my house will want to devour this heaven-sent treat in an instant. I appreciate the easy instructions too!

  6. This looks heavenly.
    I’ve never made a skillet cookie. But, like you said, why not! I’m always looking for new recipies to try, and Im excited to give this one a try too!

  7. Oh wow, that really IS my idea of a guilty pleasure, If I show this to my niece and nephew they will badger me to make it for them, it looks fun to do as a family activity though! I have to say aswell, I would never have thought of a recipe like this in a skillet!
