What is better that a warm cookie to end out a great summer day? A warm gooey cookie baked in a skillet and topped off with a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream!

And there’s and Ice cream for that! Dreyer’s Vanilla!!

For this skillet cookie, I’m combining my favorite parts of summer, a fresh baked chocolate cookie, and adding a little something special, with my wife’s favorite candy bar loaded into it. Then topped with my favorite ice cream!

For this skillet cookie, I’m combining my favorite parts of summer, a fresh baked chocolate cookie, and adding a little something special, with my wife’s favorite candy bar loaded into it.

Then to top things of I’m using Dreyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream. I love how it just starts to melt and the cookie starts to absorb that rich and creamy vanilla ice cream.

It’s better than dipping your chocolate chip cookie in milk…

Yeah, I said it!

Now normally, a skillet cookie topped with a heaping serving of ice cream, is something that I’d reserve for dessert. But when it’s the last week of summer vacation, and your better half has been working the late shift 4 days in a row, you should treat the family to something fun for breakfast.

Yep, dessert for breakfast. Dad’s treat!
