Servings 8large portions / 8 small portions
26cm Skillet or large frying pan
150glight brown soft sugar
1orange(zest of 1 orange)
1Terry's Chocolate Orange(150g if using Terry's Chocolate Minis)
Preheat the oven to 160ºC fan/ 175ºC / 320ºF.
Grease a 26cm skillet, frying pan or shallow casserole pan with butter.
Cream together the 175g butter and 150g light brown soft sugar with 50g caster sugar.
Mix in the 1 large egg, a half teaspoon of vanilla extract and the orange zest.
Sieve the 250g plain flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder with the pinch of salt into a bowl to mix together.
Stir in the flour to the dough.
Chop up the Terry's Chocolate Orange into chunky pieces.
Save a quarter of the chopped up chocolate orange for later. Add the rest into the cookie dough and mix in.
Add the cookie dough into the skillet and flatten out with your hand.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. The cookie should be crisp at the edges and soft and gooey in the middle. If you want it all to be gooey bake for a few minutes less.
As soon as the skillet cookie is out of the oven scatter the remaining chocolate chip pieces over the top. They will start to soften and melt on top of the hot cookie.
Add a few scoops of ice cream to the top and dig in!
If you don't have soft brown soft sugar you can use the same amount of caster to bring it to the same amount.
Make sure you use a frying pan which is oven proof (some handles are not oven safe).
