During Christmas, a lot of people make chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Since, I didn’t want to make regular chocolate chip cookies, I decided to make this Christmas Cookie Skillet. Inside of this beautiful Christmas Cookie Skillet are chocolate chunks, Christmas sprinkles, marshmallows, and graham cracker crumbs. The best thing about this Christmas Cookie Skillet is that this didn’t take too long for me to make. Even if you don’t want to make a cookie dough from scratch, you can purchase some store bought cookie dough and just top it with sprinkles and edible glitter!
And, I really want to tell you that this is another accidental recipe. I know, I know. More accidental recipes? Well, I didn’t plan to add marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs to this recipe initially. This happened because I thought I didn’t make enough cookie dough! My cast iron skillet is huge! I didn’t want there to be a huge space in the pan. I’m a huge fan of s’mores, so I thought that this would be a fun cozy recipe for Christmas!
How to make a Christmas Cookie Skillet:
First off, to make your Christmas Cookie Skillet, you will need cookie dough! I made my cookie dough from scratch, but you can make yours using store bought cookie dough. My recipe is gluten free and vegan. Some gluten free store bought brands of cookie dough that I recommend are Imacculate, Eat Pastry (vegan), and Sweet Loren’s. If you’re going to be using store bought cookie dough, then you’d just need to spread the dough around your cast iron using a spatula!
Next step, before spreading my cookie dough all around my cast iron skillet, I made a graham cracker crust! I made a graham cracker crust using some gluten free graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar! After making my crust, I placed the crust inside my cast iron skillet. You can bake your crust beforehand, but I didn’t because I’m lazy!
After adding your graham cracker crust, I added chocolate chunks, chocolate chips, and sprinkles to the cookie dough. I added the chocolate chips as a result of not having enough chocolate chunks left. You can use just chocolate chips if desired. I only use Enjoy Life’s vegan chocolate chips for my baking! Another thing I want to mention is that I used Wilton’s christmas sprinkles. To my knowledge, their sprinkles are vegan!

- Spray a cast iron skillet with baker’s spray (or spray some cooking spray into your skillet and add a tbsp of flour and wipe the excess using a paper towel) and preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare your vegan egg replacers. Set out your butter so that it can be room temperature or microwave your butter for 10 seconds in the microwave.
Graham Cracker Crust:
- Start by making the graham cracker crust. You do not have to bake the crust if you do not want to. I didn’t. If you’re going to bake the crust, bake it before making the cookie dough.
- Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar into a medium bowl. Stir in melted butter until incorporated. Set aside or bake in the cast iron skillet for 6-8 minutes.
- Top the graham cracker crust with marshmallows immediately after removing from the oven.
- Using a stand mixer or a spoon, cream together the butter with the sugars. Mix until the butter and sugars are combined. Add your vanilla extract and continue to mix.
- Add your egg replacers and continue to mix. Add the flour and continue to mix until a dough forms. Add the oat milk. Continue to mix.
- Add the chocolate chunks and sprinkles, lightly fold them into the cookie dough using a spatula.
- Spread the cookie dough all over the graham cracker crust and marshmallows. Spread it around using a spatula. Top with more chocolate chips, sprinkles, and edible glitter.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes. The longer you bake the skillet, the harder the cookie skillet. I baked mine for 15 minutes because I like it soft and crumbly!
- You can easily get 15-20 slices from this skillet depending on how you slice it. The larger the slices, the more calories.
- Calories are an estimate.
- Marshmallows, sprinkles, and glitter are optional!
