A soft and chewy skillet cookie loaded with peanut butter chips, chocolate chunks and a layer of creamy peanut butter in the center. Serve warm topped with ice cream for the ultimate easy dessert!


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • Ice cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom and sides of an 8-inch cast-iron or oven-safe skillet with butter.
  2. In a large bowl using an electric hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat butter and both sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until just combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt until well combined. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; stir just until a dough forms. Stir in peanut butter chips and chopped chocolate until just combined.
  4. Spread half of cookie dough into bottom of prepared skillet. Spread peanut butter on top of cookie dough in a thin, even layer. Top peanut butter with remaining cookie dough, being careful to cover as much peanut butter as possible.
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edges of cookie are set and deep golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cookie comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Cut into wedges or squares. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
