One-pan dark chocolate chunk skillet cookie

One-pan dark chocolate chunk skillet cookie
For some reason, I was craving this on Saturday. Nothing else would do. All I wanted was a warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookie, straight out of an iron skillet. With just a little ice cream. I flipped through a cookbook or two, and discovered you could make chocolate chip cookies with melted butter. One recipe (from The Weekend Baker by Abigail Dodge) even had you mix the entire dough in the saucepan where you melted the butter, and then scoop out the cookies from there. As this was a lazy Saturday, and my intent was only to satisfy my craving (not a den of Cub Scouts’ or a mob of preschoolers’), I exercised no financial caution and dumped an entire cup of chopped Valrhona chocolate into the mix. To make this, since it is such a simple recipe, use the very best ingredients you can. And then run a 5k. Now I know that most of you don’t have an enormous bar of Valrhona chocolate lying around. I know. To order the same Lodge Logic Skillet that I used, you can find it right here on amazon. 1.
