What kind of grilled summer treat would be complete without a scoop of of ice cream on top?

Grilled Chocolate Chip Brownie Skillet Cookie


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 12 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, lightly packed

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 8 ounces chocolate chips

  • 1 box brownie mix, or your favorite brownie recipe

  • Cooking spray

  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, to serve


  1. Preheat grill to 325°F. If you have a 3 burner grill, light only 2 sides; if you have a 2 burner grill, light only 1 side. This way the skillet will never sit on direct heat.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix and set aside.

  3. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or with a hand mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.

  4. Add the vanilla and eggs. Mix until combined. Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined and you no longer see any flour bits. Lastly, stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon or silicone spatula.

  5. In a separate bowl, make the brownie mix per the package directions.

  6. Spray a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray, making sure to get the sides. Pour in the brownie batter. Next, take handfuls of the cookie dough and place them over the batter, leaving some areas exposed.

  7. Place on the cooler side of the grill, close and cook for 45-60 minutes, or until the middle is set when you jiggle the pan. It should be puffed and golden brown.

  8. Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

- Today, I'm grilling dessert, chocolate chip cookies and brownies all in a skillet. I put some ice cream on top, and it's glorious. I'll show you how. I have some room temperature butter that I've just been mixing up a little bit, into the bowl I'm adding brown sugar, and white sugar to make my chocolate chip cookie dough. All right, let's mix this up just until the sugar is combined into the butter and it creams, it'll be smooth. If you look in your pantry and you don't have any brown sugar, which has happened to me once or twice, you can mix a cup of white granulated sugar with a tablespoon of molasses, and mix it together and you have brown sugar. Wipe down my bowl a little bit. I bet you're thinking, why are you making a chocolate chip brownie skillet on the grill? That's wild. I'm gonna show you how easy it is. Looks ready to go, to this bowl I'm gonna add some vanilla extract, and two eggs, let's mix this up. The wet ingredients are ready, I'm gonna move on to my dry ingredients, which is some flour, and I'm adding some baking soda as well as some salt. I like a good pinch, I like three pinches. Mix it together with a fork. Flour into this butter sugar mixture, but don't put it all in at once, 'cause then it'll go poof. Just add maybe a third of it, mix it up, and then just continue to add it, start off slow. All right, last edition. Just wanna mix it until you no longer see any flour bits, and then add chocolate chips. You can use whatever chocolate chips you have on hand, semi-sweet, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, I just wanted these to be super fancy. Cookie dough batter is done. We set that aside, and then I have a cast iron skillet, I'm gonna spray it with a little cooking spray. Make sure you get the sides as well as the bottom, and here I have some brownie batter. Pour the brownie mixture into the pan first, and you can use store-bought, your favorite store-bought kind, or if you have like a bomb brownie recipe, then you take your cookie dough mixture, and this is a little messy, but you kinda scoop it up, put it on, mound it up, but you can't really smooth it over because this is so much thinner than the dough. You take a scoop, plop it in. I like making this in a skillet because my favorite part of a brownie or a cookie is that crispy crunchy chewy edge and you get so much of that in this cast iron skillet, you get this whole edge and the bottom. I'm telling you, you don't get it from any other way. That looks like a hot mess, but I promise it will make sense. So, I have my grill pre-heated and only half of it's on and half of it's a little cooler, so I'm gonna put the skillet on the cooler part, then I'm gonna close the lid, I'm gonna check on it ever 15, 20 minutes, kinda move it around, give it a little jiggle, make sure it's not cooking too much in one spot, but it should take about an hour. Keep an eye on it and I'm just gonna go, go hang out for an hour eagerly awaiting this to come off the grill. It worked, I grilled cookies. Hoist it up, puts it down with ease, it smells so good. Do you see all the brownie around the edges and the chocolate chip cookie in the middle just kinda puffed up? So, you can serve it plain like this, or with whipped cream, or ice cream. I have to try it, I'm going in. You know I'm getting an edge, 'cause that's my favorite part. I'm like not okay, I'm not okay. I hope you make this, this is so good! Chocolate chip cookie and brownie skillet, make it.
