Giant Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie

There's nothing we can say about cookies that hasn't been said before. We could sing their praises all day and still feel like we're not being ebullient enough because cookies are just THAT good. But sometimes it just feels like most cookies aren't quite big enough, which is why we decided to go big or go home. Ladies and gentleman, we give you a giant chocolate chip cookie stuffed with vanilla pudding, chocolate pudding, and chocolate sauce... and by "giant," we do mean enormous!

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

You'll Need:

For the chocolate chips:

  • ½ cup Nutella
  • 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder

For the cookie dough:

  • 4¼ sticks butter
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 5 cups flour

For the filling:

  • ⅓ cup vanilla pudding
  • chocolate sauce
  • ⅓ cup chocolate pudding

For the chocolate sauce:

  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 2½ cups cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup boiling water

Here's How:

1. For the chocolate chips, heat the Nutella and mix it with the cocoa powder. Pour the chocolate mixture into a clean, empty plastic tube and freeze overnight.

2. For the cookie dough, beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and salt with a hand mixer until creamy. Add the flour and knead until smooth. Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

3. Cut off the bottom of the plastic tube, push out the frozen chocolate log, and slice it into several evenly-sized pieces. Place a 10-inch heat-resistant pan lid upside-down on a bowl. Grease the lid and spread out the chocolate chips on it.

4. Roll ⅔ of the chilled cookie dough out into a circle, carefully press it into the pan lid over the chocolate chips, and cut off any excess dough.

5. Spread vanilla pudding over the cookie dough.

6. Combine the ingredients for the chocolate sauce and spread it over the vanilla pudding.

7. Spread chocolate pudding over the chocolate sauce.

8. Roll the rest of the cookie dough out into a circle, place it on top of the chocolate pudding, and use a fork to seal the 2 cookie dough parts.

9. Flip the lid over into a large cast iron skillet.

10. Transfer the skillet with the lid to a preheated oven and cook at 350°F for 1½ hours. Carefully remove the finished cookie from the lid and let it cool down completely before serving, preferably overnight.

No one will be able to stop themself from taking a big bite out of this thing! It's a cookie, alright, and then some. Just look at that filling, with all the pudding and chocolate sauce running out like sweet, sweet lava from a cookie volcano!
