This has been a doozy of a week if there ever was one. Where the to-do lists are long and the days even longer. One of those weeks where you wake up each morning and wonder how on earth you’ll get it all done. And then somehow, you do. Only to get up and do it all over again the very next day. Such is life these days. We are all busier than ever it seems with no sign of slowing down. We’ll dive deeper into that another time. Today is reserved for happy things. Today is about the little things that bring us joy that aren’t listed on our google calendar or penciled in on a post-it note reminder.


The fact that we can see the weekend from here sparks a whole lotta joy for me and I’m sure for you too. Two free days to do as we please or do nothing at all. More importantly, a day to enjoy a splurge or two and not feel one bit bad about it. Sign me up and count me in for anything in cookie form. I kinda feel like on the weekends, the splurge really has to count. To be worthy. To be so good you can’t stop talking about it on Monday at the office. This Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut Skillet Cookie is exactly that!


Let’s talk about a skillet cookie. My kids call it a pazookie which secretly makes me giggle every time they say the word. If you aren’t familiar with a pazookie, it’s basically a ginormous cookie that is served warm and gooey straight from the oven in a cast iron skillet. This is a dessert that is meant to be shared, make no mistake about it. It’s best devoured straight from the skillet so don’t even bother breaking out any extra plates or bowls. That would take all the fun out of the spoon war that’s about to go down.


This skillet cookie is made with a generous serving of chopped macadamia nuts, milk chocolate and a bit of white chocolate for good measure. It’s the ultimate salty, sweet dessert and all the flavors balance each other nicely. The best of both worlds. The dough itself is a basic chocolate chip cookie dough, nothing fancy and everyone’s favorite. It’ll be gone in the first five minutes. It’s just that good.


At least three large scoops of ice cream should pretty much be mandatory to top off this ooey gooey goodness. Mmmm, that melty ice cream mixed with the warm cookie dough makes this dessert 100% splurge worthy! This is the kind of dessert that takes a Friday night at home from “meh” to “Ah-Mazing“! I say do yourself a major favor and grab the ingredients for this skillet cookie today so you can bake it up on Friday, curl up on the couch with your honey or the kiddos {or both!}, and dive in. After just twenty minutes in the oven your house will smell like heaven and the fact that no one has to wait too long to dig in to this crazy delicious dessert sparks all kinds of joy.


You know what else sparks joy? This Le Creuset cast iron skillet in their new Berry.  I mean, how gorgeous is that pink? It’s the prettiest summertime hue and that ombre detail is everything. Le Creuset really knows a thing or two about color and this newly released Berry just might be my favorite of them all. I just love how fresh and colorful it is and I cannot say enough good things about Le Creuset’s line of enameled cast iron. Their pieces are timeless and will last forever. Stylish and practical?? I’m here for this!
