This Chocolate Chip Cookie Blondie Skillet Sundae For Two is the perfect dessert to whip up when you want something sweet but don’t want to make a huge batch! A thick and chewy chocolate chip cookie baked in a mini skillet topped with ice cream and a rich chocolate sauce will cure any sweet tooth!
Why have I never tried small batch baking before? This is a game changer, guys. Loyal readers may have noticed that I don’t have very many baked goods on the blog. It’s not that I don’t enjoy baking, I do. Of course I go into a baking frenzy at Christmastime, and make all kinds of cookies. But with only me and Mr. Briar in the house, it always seems ridiculous to make a huge batch of cookies or some other dessert because chances are we will end up eating
all way too many of them and then cry the next time we get on the scale.

When I started looking through Baking for Two, I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to make first. Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread? White Confetti Cupcakes with Whipped Vanilla Buttercream? Good old Chocolate Chip Cookies (but the recipe only makes six cookies!)? It was a difficult choice, but I finally settled on this Chocolate Chip Cookie Blondie Skillet Sundae because you know I can’t resist a mini skillet! And that warm chocolate chip cookie blondie covered in ice cream and rich fudge sauce? I couldn’t say no.
I loved that this was so fast to mix together and the batter was made in one bowl. So not only did it make a small batch, but the effort was minimal and there wasn’t much of a mess to clean up. How perfect is that?
