Get In The Holiday Spirit By Digging Into This Chocolate Peppermint Skillet Cookie

‘Tis the season to treat yourself and the whole family, and one of the best ways to do that is with a Chocolate Peppermint Skillet Cookie everyone will want to cozy up to.

What’s great about this skillet cookie is that it can be made entirely dairy-free. That way, if you’ve got someone in the family who can’t drink milk, even they can enjoy it as well.

This treat uses Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Refrigerated Unsweetened Chocolate Almondmilk for its creamy, chocolate-y flavor. While almond milk is normally used for drinks or cereal, it’s versatile enough to be added into desserts as an easy dairy substitute.

Massive skillet cookies are all about their gooey indulgence, and this one definitely packs it in. It’s got a marshmallow filling and double chocolate to go big on flavor, but also balances that out with a refreshing hit of peppermint from crushed candy canes.

For the cookie dough
2 Tbsp vegan butter, softened
½ cup white granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 cups All Purpose flour
⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
7 tablespoons Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Refrigerated Unsweetened Chocolate Almondmilk

For the icing
¾ cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Refrigerated Unsweetened Chocolate Almondmilk

 Chocolate Peppermint Skillet Cookie


Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 °F and grease an 8” cast iron skillet with vegan butter.

Step 2
In a large bowl, thoroughly combine white sugar, brown sugar, and softened vegan butter. Sift cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking soda into a separate, medium-sized bowl. Next, add the dry and wet ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Add in the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Refrigerated Unsweetened Chocolate Almondmilk and mix again. Fold in a small handful of chocolate chunks.

Step 3
Slice your marshmallows about ⅛ inch thick. It’s important for the marshmallows to be sliced thinly so they melt evenly during baking.

Step 4
Grab about ⅔ of the dough and press it evenly into the bottom of your cast iron pan. Place 8 slices of marshmallow flat onto the dough. Evenly flatten out the remainder of the cookie dough on top. Garnish with the remaining chocolate chunks. Place skillet in oven and bake for exactly for 10 minutes.

Step 5
While cookie skillet is baking, place all the icing ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and whisk together

Step 6
Cool cookie skillet slightly. Using a spoon, drizzle icing and top with crushed candy canes. Top with a scoop of dairy-free ice cream, and enjoy!

Pizza Hut Now Making ‘Pizzas’ Out Of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough


It seems fast food is starting to forget what pizza is. Back in April, Domino’s unleashed a new line of “Specialty Chickens,” which were essentially pizza toppings drizzled over chicken nuggets instead of dough. Now, Pizza Hut is partnering with Hershey’s to debut a new giant chocolate chip cookie. Which, while probably spec-freaking-tacular, is still not a pizza.

Officially named the Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie, the 8-inch pan will feature eight shareable slices of chocolate dotted cookie dough. Available for $5.99 on its own or $4.99 with real pizza purchase, the giant pizookie will also debut this Wednesday as part of Pizza Hut’s nationwide “bake sale,” with 10% of proceeds going to the United Nations World Food Programme.

Mildly related: Domino’s recently (and, rather serendipitously) called a “cookie pizza” one of its necessary failures in and advertisement on the road to crafting its Specialty Chickens. Which is pretty much the same as calling a first born child a “rough draft.” Pizza. Shots. Fired.

Papa John’s Now Has Giant Pizza-Sliced Chocolate Chip Cookies


Imagine you’re sitting at home on a Friday, having just ordered Papa John’s, and you open your pizza box. Inside, there’s a delectable, freshly baked pie with warm dough, gooey insides and an ever-so-slightly crispy crust that just breaks between your teeth as you bite down. The sweet chocolate chips melting on your tongue as you…

Oh yeah, there’s chocolate chips.

Papa John’s is adding the “Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie,” a pizza-shaped dessert, to their menu. The eight-piece pizza-sliced cookie is going for $6, or $5 with the purchase of an accompanying pizza through Oct. 27. Each slice is about 195 calories.

There’s a beautiful uniformity about biting into Hawaiian BBQ Chicken in one hand and a slice of cookie pizza in the other. The Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie could very well be the thing that separates Papa John’s from Pizza Hut or Domino’s in terms of dessert glory.

Though I have a feeling they won’t be alone for too long.
