Skillet Baked Candy Bar Stuffed Double Cookie

“What on earth should I do with all of this Halloween candy?!”

Let me help 🙂

Does this look familiar?  Yah, candy overload right?!  Don’t get me wrong, I love going through the kids bags and munching on my favorite treats, but after a few days I am ready to get it gone, lol!

Let’s make one of the best cookies ever shall we?


I used the Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, but feel free to use your own recipe if you’d rather 🙂  I’d say a good 2 cups of your own dough.


Press your dough into the bottom of your skillet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.


Now’s the fun part…top your sugar cookie dough with your favorite Halloween candy bars.  Any that you like will do!


Top your candy bars with chocolate chip cookie dough.  Mmmmm!

Press your dough down evenly and time to bake!

I might frame this so I can look at it all day, lol!  That’s a skillet of love right there.

The hardest part of the whole recipe is waiting for the cookie to cool so you can slice it!  Candy bar ooey gooey goodness!  Enjoy friends:)


Skillet Baked Candy Bar Stuffed Double Cookie


  • one 16 ounce roll sugar cookie dough
  • 1 stick/8 tablespoons unsalted, softened butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
  • 12-15 pieces of your favorite Halloween Candy Bars


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a 10 or 12 inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray.
  2. Unwrap and press sugar cookie dough into bottom of skillet. Top with your favorite Halloween candy bars.
  3. Place butter and sugars into a large bowl and cream until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beating until well combined. Slowly add flour, salt and baking soda stirring until nearly all combined. Add chips and stir to combine. Use this cookie dough to top over candy bars, pressing evenly. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden and baked through. Let cool completely before cutting into wedges.

Makes 8 Servings

    Perfect use for all that candy – bury it inside some cookie dough! Love it, Jenny! And I love making skillet cookies. So easy! Had no idea why I wasn’t doing it for years but finally started!

    Mmmm…I’m smacking my lips at just after 6:00 in the morning looking at this! Time to pull out the cast iron skillet. Thanks for such a great recipe Jenny!

    That looks INCREDIBLE!! Definitely a good use for leftover candy (it’ll stop me from eating ALL of it by myself 🙂 )

    I don’t have a skillet. It looks like I’m going to have to get one! Wondering if I could do this in a pie pan instead?

    I can’t stop making these. I have no skillet so its 8×8 candy bar stuffed double cookie. But I bring a pan of these to work every month and the guys don’t stop eating till the pans empty. Thank you for this recipe!

    Andrea says:

    If you use premade sugar cookie why not do the same for the chocolate chip dough? Even easier.

      bin says:

      I was thinking the same thing! You could use what ever flavor cookie dough and what ever candy bar minis you like. Change it a little every time. Use only your favorite candy bars with your favorite cookie dough. You could top with salted caramel drizzle or fudge drizzle and serve with a side of ice cream. I figure if you blew it this much all ready, just go all the way! lol

    Can’t you just buy the chocolate chip cookie dough.

    JennyJ says:

    I can’t wait to make this!! I would advise against pan spray in your cast iron, though-it will ruin the seasoning and, therefore, the non-stick features it’s so known for (no dish soap, either-very hot water and a scratch pad). Use butter or shortening instead. 🙂 happy baking!
