This Nutella Skillet Cookie is a thick chocolate chip cookie that is stuffed with Nutella and baked in a cast-iron skillet. The edges are crunchy and the center is warm and gooey. I highly recommend topping with ice cream before serving.

I really used to think that I didn’t like Nutella, but this skillet cookie changed my mind. Something about a warm and gooey cookie filled with Nutella is irresistible! This cookie is going to be one that make over and over again

Looking down on a skillet cookie topped with ice cream
  • All-purpose flour. All-purpose flour. Measuring the flour correctly is very important. I suggest weighing your flour out (I use this scale). If you want to use a measuring cup, make sure you spoon the flour into the cup and level it off with a knife. Don’t use the cup to scoop directly from the flour.
  • Baking Soda. This will give our skillet cookie the rise we are looking for.
  • Salt. Salt is a must in baked goods. It will help to balance out the sweetness and improve the overall flavor.
  • Unsalted Butter. I always make sure to use unsalted butter when baking because there is no “standard” for the amount of salt they can add to butter. So if you add salt to a recipe and then use salted butter you could end up with a very salty end product.
  • Brown Sugar. Brown sugar adds a chewy texture to the finished product.
  • Vanilla Extract. Vanilla is a must in baked goods just like salt. Real vanilla adds a better flavor than imitation vanilla.
  • Egg. It will be easier to incorporate the eggs into the batter if they are at room temperature.
  • Chocolate Chips. I used semi-sweet chocolate, but you can use whatever you like best.
  • Nutella. This will go in the center of the skillet cookie.
All of the ingredients needed for this recipe

STEP 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F). If you’re using a cast-iron skillet you shouldn’t need to do anything to make it non-stick (The one I used was given to me by my grandma, but this one is the same size and the same brand as the other cast-irons I cook with.) If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet you can just use a small baking dish for the same effect. Either one needs to be 6.5 inches and you will need to spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.

STEP 2: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt until free of lumps.

STEP 3: In another medium bowl beat the softened butter, sugar, and vanilla until soft and creamy. Add egg and beat well.

STEP 4: Add flour mixture in two additions, mixing until just combined after each. Fold in the chocolate chips.

STEP 5: Press half of the dough into the bottom of the skillet, pressing more in the center to make a divot, fill it with the Nutella. Use the rest of the dough to cover the top.

STEP 6: Place the skillet cookie in the oven with a cookie sheet underneath it to catch any that might spill over.

STEP 7: Bake for about 30-35 minutes for a doughy center, 5-10 minutes longer if you would like your cookie to be more done in the center.

  • Skillet cookies are best served warm, about 5-10 minutes out of the oven.
  • You can make the dough ahead of time and bake it off when ready to serve.
  • You can serve the skillet cookie with spoons and allow people to share or cut the cookie into slices, like a pizza.
