  • 6 Tablespoons butter softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon red food coloring
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup chocolate chips of choice I used white for a nice color contrast


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and generously grease a cast iron skillet. If you don't own one, you can use a round cake pan.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Add in the food coloring until well blended.
  • In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add this to your mixing bowl while mixing on low speed. Mix until everything just comes together.
  • Turn the mixer off and fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared skillet and bake in your preheated oven for 18-22 minutes or until the cookie is set. Allow it to cool slightly before serving. Feel free to add ice cream, chocolate syrup or whatever toppings make you happy.


If you have any leftovers (ha), store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They will keep for several days.
