Chocolate S’mores Skillet Cookie

I’ve teamed up with Crisco®, as a Crisco Creator, to help inspire home cooks with new recipe ideas and cooking and baking tips using Crisco® products.

Well, howdy friends! It’s been a while since I’ve brought you a dessert recipe, so here lies an amazing one that I hope will be reason enough to stop what you’re doing to make immediately.

This Chocolate Skillet S’mores Cookie is to die for and is so so simple to make. If you have any experience baking cookies, then this recipe will come easy to you. Lots of basic ingredients thrown together to create a crispy edged, soft and chewy skillet cookie that happens to be filled with all the good stuff that makes s’mores so amazing.

I love using Crisco®  All-Vegetable Butter Flavored Shortening Sticks for a recipe like this because if you ever run out of butter {which I do all the time} then this is a great alternative that just so happens to have 50% less saturated fat than butter¹. You might be surprised to learn that there are many ways to cook and bake with Crisco® shortening to make savory dishes and sweet desserts. It also delivers higher, lighter-textured, moist and tender baked goods which you can see in this recipe.

You’re going to want to make this before summer is through. My kids just about DIED when they saw this being pulled from the oven 🙂

Here’s how to make it:

Start by taking one of these Crisco® Butter Flavored baking sticks and throwing it into a bowl with a little water, some canola oil, sugar and brown sugar. Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening Sticks are easy to use and come in a no mess, measurable package.

Like so!

Mix it together until light and fluffy and then stir in two eggs and some vanilla.

Next come the dry ingredients! Believe it or not, there is lots of flour underneath my cocoa mountain. Ha!

Stir this well until it all comes together, being sure to scrape the bottom and the sides thoroughly.

Cookie dough is a beautiful thing.

Now, we could stop here and eat just the dough {which is what my husband begged me to do} but we must forge ahead because believe it or not, it gets better!!

Do you see what I mean by better? Mhmm….Spread half the cookie dough into the bottom of a cast iron skillet and top with marshmallows cut in half and chocolate pieces.

Then top with more cookie dough and more chocolate and bake!

There will be a little dough left, so scoop these out into cookies and bake. We will crumble these over the top and use them as a garnish! Or I guess you could just eat them too 🙂

Sooooo, after 22-25 minutes or so, your skillet cookie is finished! Love all that puffy marshmallow poking through with the melty chocolate too!! YUM. Are you drooling yet?

I waited a few minutes for my cookie to cool so it wouldn’t fall apart to serve, but feel free to just scoop the hot cookie into bowls instead of creating actual pieces.

This was after about 20 minutes. Its still plenty warm, but retained its shape much better.

So, I topped mine with a scoop of ice cream, chocolate syrup and some cookie crumbles because why not. Also, it makes it look much fancier than it actually is. Winning at life.

The edges are lightly crispy and buttery and the center is soft and chewy. The marshmallow stays pretty gooey too! Such a dreamy dessert that you will love!!

Chocolate S'mores Skillet Cookie

Yield: 10 servings

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick Crisco® All-Vegetable Butter Flavor Shortening Sticks
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/4 cup Crisco® Pure Canola Oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 large marshmallows, cut in half
  • 2-1.55 oz. milk chocolate bars, such as Hershey's
  • vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup for garnish, optional

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 12-inch cast iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix Butter Flavored Crisco® shortening with water, canola oil, sugar and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again. Add in the eggs and vanilla and stir again. Measure out all the dry ingredients into the bowl and stir slowly until just incorporated. Scrape the bowl really well and stir again briefly to mix. Divide cookie dough in half and spread one half in the bottom of the cast iron skillet. Gently press marshmallow halves and chocolate into the cookie dough. Take the remaining half of the cookie dough and divide in half again. With one of the halves of dough, press between your hands to flatten slightly and place overtop the marshmallows and chocolate until mostly covered. Top with remaining chocolate pieces and bake 22-25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 10-20 minutes.
  3. With remaining cookie dough, scoop into 10 small cookies and bake at 350 degrees for 6-7 minutes.
  4. To serve, cut skillet cookie into pieces and top with ice cream and chocolate syrup. Crumble baked cookies into crumbs over top each piece and serve.

  1. Oh my gosh! This looks amazing!! I would love to make this but I don’t have any cast iron skillets. I have a feeling a regular skillet wouldn’t be the same. Are there any alternative baking dishes I could use instead?

    • You can try a large pie plate or a 9×9 baking dish.

  2. I don’t have a cast iron skillet. Would another dish work? I know my kids would love this!

  3. I really try to avoid recipes with shortening. Could I sub butter or anything else? Otherwise looks great!
