This giant M&M Skillet Cookie is made with brown sugar for a soft center with crisp golden edges, pebbled with Almond M&Ms for a crunchy texture.


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature, plus 1 TB for buttering skillet
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup M&Ms, any version you like or any similar candy


  1. Preheat oven to 350Β°F. Using a pastry brush, coat a 12" cast iron skillet with 1 TB of butter. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream remaining 1/2 cup butter with the brown sugar. Mix on medium speed for 3-5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl periodically.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and mix for another minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl thoroughly.
  5. Add the dry mixture and mix on low until the flour is just incorporated.
  6. Stir in 1 cup of M&M's by hand, reserving 1/4 cup.
  7. Transfer the cookie dough into the prepared cast iron skillet and gently press the dough evenly into the pan.
  8. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until cookie is golden brown and edges are set, about 20 minutes, rotating skillet halfway through baking.
  9. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then carefully press the remaining M&Ms into the top of the baked cookie. This helps prevent them from cracking and keeps the color more vibrant.
  10. Allow to cool 20-30 minutes before diving in. Slice into wedges and serve warm with your favorite ice cream.


This recipe can be easily adapted using any type of M&M or similar candy you prefer.
