Whenever I think “pizookie,” I am swept right back to high school in my best friend’s kitchen.
I remember it like yesterday. We would run out to the store to get pre-made cookie dough and vanilla bean ice cream whenever we had the chance, whether it was after school or on a weekend afternoon.
Honestly, I can’t even remember who came up with the idea to make it first… I think it was my bestie Jessica’s idea if I remember correctly. I’d never had it so she of course demanded that we make it right away.
We would stand over the hot dish with spoons in hand, not even bothering to take a seat because the gooey deliciousness was so so good.
For those of you who don’t know what pizookie is exactly, it’s essentially under-baked chocolate chip cookie topped with ice cream.
Yes, I know. This isn’t exactly “safe” in terms of egg and that whole possible salmonella thing that we exposed ourselves to time and time again. That’s why THIS recipe is safe!
That’s because you are only using egg yolks instead of the whole egg in the cookie batter recipe. Therefore, even with the batter being under-baked, you don’t need to worry about getting sick.
Let’s just say that would definitely be no bueno, particularly if you are busting out pizookie on a romantic Valentine’s Day evening…
Instead, you can rest assured that there’s only gooey warm deliciousness in store for you. I like to use a combination of Valentine’s Day themed M&M’s and mini chocolate chips to make the skillet more festive. However, if you can’t find those M&M’s, you can just substitute in regular M&M’s or use more mini chocolate chips!
It’s the ideal dish to cozy up to with that special someone, or even with your best gal pal! It comes together in less than 25 minutes and it’s so stupid simple, literally anyone can make it. Trust me.
Add some wine, some candles, and some flowers… You have the perfect celebration of Valentine’s Day right here.
So, who are you going to share this skillet of goodness with?
This Recipe’s Must-Haves
I made my pizookie skillet in my Oyster color Le Creuset Signature Iron Handle Skillet, 9-Inch! It’s the perfect cast iron to make this in, plus it’s gorgeous to serve it in.
To mix together the dough, you just need one of these FineDine Premium Various Sizes Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls! It’s that easy 😉
If you are looking to upgrade your utensil situation, I recommend this Le Creuset of America Craft Series 5 Piece Utensil Set with Crock. Their utensils are durable and last FOREVER – not to mention they are gorgeous!
I picked up my sprinkles at my local grocery store, but if you want something really festive (and to guarantee you get it – they sell out this time of year!) check out this Wilton Valentine’s Day Mix Sprinkle Assortment.
