Goblin Skillet Cookie is a giant, warm chocolate chip cookie filled with Ghoul Mix M&M's. It's fun, yummy, and a hit with kids of all ages!
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...
The Story Behind This Recipe
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!
How to Make a Goblin Skillet Cookie
Goblin Skillet Cookie is a fun recipe that includes Ghoul Mix M&M's (ad), candy eyeballs, and oats added for good measure. It's a hoot to make because you just throw a bunch of goodies in a cast iron skillet (ad) and hope for the best.
This delicious cookie includes ingredients like oats, flour, salt, baking soda, brown sugar, white sugar, butter, vanilla, eggs, chocolate chips, pecans, M&M's, and candy eyeballs.
It turns out to be a yummy mess (which bears an uncanny resemblance to my orange bedroom). There are even orange M&M's which drip down the ice cream. You can't mess this up!
Decorating the Cookie
Gather the kids around when you make a Monster Skillet Cookie, 'cause they'll want to be part of the action! They can help with every step, especially when it's time to decorate the cookie with candy eyeballs.
After the cookie cools, garnish it with big scoops of vanilla ice cream and make it look like a goblin. Ooooooooooooh!
Have fun on Halloween...and be sure to share this cookie with your goblins, monsters and ghouls! It's better than painting your teenager's room a ghastly shade of orange...I promise.
