Step 3

Chop the chocolate bars into big chunks as shown. Using chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips makes this the ultimate skillet chocolate chip cookie for gooey cookie lovers, like me.

Step 4

In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until light and creamy. Should take about 5 minutes.

You can use the bowl of a stand mixer for this step.

Add the egg and vanilla extract and continue beating.

Step 6

Add in the flour mixture and continue beating until well mixed.
