GIVEAWAY + Chocolate Peppermint Olive Oil Skillet Cookie!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!! In case you didn’t get the memo, I love a big skillet cookie. Even better, a giant Chocolate Peppermint Olive Oil Skillet Cookie! I teamed up with California Olive Ranch to give away FIVE copies of The Cookie Book each with a bottle of their Mild & Buttery Olive Oil (which is ideal for baking!). To enter, simply tell me your favorite holiday dessert in the comments below. Enter as many times as you’d like; one entry per comment. Starting Monday, December 9, 2019 you can also enter over on my Instagram; details over there. Open to US addresses only; giveaway ends Friday, December 13, 2019. Good luck everyone!! xo

I adapted this recipe from the Stuffed Pretzel Caramel Skillet Cookie in The Cookie Book. In this version, we melt instead of brown the butter because I didn’t want to mask any of those delicious olive oil flavors. I also, obviously, used olive oil for the oil. Additionally, I wanted to add some holiday jazz hands. For that, I used three different types of chocolate (semi-sweet, dark and white chocolate) and threw in a handful of crushed peppermint candies. It all came together like a dream. If you haven’t baked with olive oil before, today’s your day. It imparts gorgeous texture plus a slight, and beautiful, flavor.

This is also part of the 12 Days of Sweet Treats (#12DaysofSweetTreats) that I’m doing with Amisha, see below for all of our holiday sweet treats so far…

Before We Get Started

  • OLIVE OIL. Always bake with an olive oil that you would drink straight from the bottle. End of story. In regards to baking with olive oil, you want to make sure you really blend the oil well into the wet ingredients…think like you’re making a salad dressing. You want to emulsify the wet ingredients until they’re one cohesive mixture. Otherwise you run the risk of the oil separating out of the dough which is not the goal. 
  • CHOCOLATE. I used three types of chocolate in here: semi-sweet, dark and white. I like to add more dark than any other type, as it tempers the sweetness a bit. But you do you. Additionally, you can use chopped chocolate or chocolate chips. 
  • SERVING. Give the skillet cookie some time to cool down because I swear it tastes best when slightly warm or cool (from both a taste and texture perspective). Additionally, ice cream is perfect with this. Even more, a drizzle of more olive oil over the top of the ice cream. Seriously, try it. 
  • SKILLET(S). For the photos, I used three 6-inch (15-cm) petite cast-iron skillets, placed on a baking sheet to catch any overflow, and reduced the bake time to 17 minutes. In the recipe I give instructions for using a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Do not use a non-stick for this; you’ll need an oven-safe skillet.

Let’s make a BOMB Chocolate Peppermint Olive Oil Skillet Cookie!

Chocolate Peppermint Olive Oil Skillet Cookie

1 10-Inch Skillet Cookie or 3 6-inch Skillet Cookies

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 tablespoons (115 g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1⁄4 cups (275 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 2⁄3 cup (158 ml) California Olive Ranch Mild & Buttery Olive Oil
  • 1⁄4 cup (48 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) milk, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
  • 1 1⁄2 cups (204 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1⁄2 cups (204 g) bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup (120 g) dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup (60 g) semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup (60 g) white chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup (115 g/4 oz) peppermint candy, crushed

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Oil a 10-inch (25-cm) cast-iron skillet and make sure you have a rack in the top third of the oven, at least 6 inches (15 cm) from the heat source.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, oil, granulated sugar, eggs, egg yolk, milk and vanilla and mix until blended. Set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, bread flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. Add this to the butter mixture, stirring until barely combined and you still see streaks of flour. Add in the chopped chocolate and peppermint candy (*reserving* several tablespoons of chocolate and candy to sprinkle over the top) and stir until combined and everything is evenly distributed throughout. Add the dough to the skillet, patting it down to smooth any bumps and lumps. Sprinkle the reserved chocolate and candy over the top.
  4. Bake for 22 minutes in the top third of the oven. Wait at least 45 minutes to serve, and I strongly urge you to serve with vanilla ice cream.

    Homemade sugar cookies! They remind me of the many times spent in the kitchen with my mom and my girls decorating sugar cookies for the holidays and finding the sprinkles for weeks afterwards!

    Eggnog macarons. About 50% of the time when I make them the shells turn out hollow and the feet are messed up, but they still taste amazing. Plus, my kids don’t know the difference and they still think I’m a rockstar.

    I love this book! Would be wonderful to give as a gift. I often think I’ll try new things for the holidays but fall back on family faves like butter walnut crescent cookies, ginger molasses spice, and cranberry nut loaves. But for a party this week I’m serving early grey chocolate pôt de crèmes!
