Recipe FAQS

Can I use another type of candy?

Sure! You can try using another color of M&M's, or change the recipe completely and use another type of candy like Reeses Cups™ or Reeses Pieces™.

What if I like my cookie a little more crisp?

This cookie turns out to be soft and gooey, so if you like a crisper cookie, be sure to bake it at least 15 more minutes until it's not as soft in the middle.

Can I use another type of dish?

Feel free to substitute a 13 x 9 inch baking dish for a cast iron skillet. However, you will also need to watch the baking time because food cooked in a skillet bakes faster.

The Story Behind This Recipe

My mom loved to celebrate birthdays by throwing a big party. When I was growing up, she hosted the most elaborate events you can imagine. Halloween was one of her favorite holidays. She would have loved making a Goblin Skillet Cookie.

Which reminds me of my 16th birthday...

On one of the biggest days of my young life, my artistic mother thought it would be a fun idea to invite friends over to paint my pink bedroom an obnoxious shade of orange. While I was out shopping, she sneaked friends into my room, provided huge brushes with paint, and encouraged them to "be as creative as you like."

Keep in mind my friends were 16 years old when they participated in this act of treason....so you can probably guess what the room looked like when I got home. Paint was dripping everywhere, and the walls looked more like they belonged in an insane asylum than a bedroom.

Instead of being thrilled and excited, I broke into a big puddle of tears. Of course, my mother and friends thought it was hilarious...and laughed hysterically for hours. And, this is the inspiration behind my mixed-up cookie recipe!
