I have yet to meet a cookie that I don’t like.  And this recipe for a Mississippi Mud cookie skillet is no exception…in fact it’s SO good (and adorable) I think it has quickly become a must for tailgating this season.

Before I dive into the recipe, I want to note that these skillets are personal sized so not only are they functional but they’re adorable to serve this way.  (But not too cute for a tailgate 😉 ) I’m thinking there are a lot of things I could serve in these bad boys.

Ok back to the Mississippi Mud.   I stumbled upon the recipe in Southern Living but put my own little spin on it with the mini skillets.


  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz.) salted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (about 9 oz.) all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/4 cup miniature marshmallows


1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly coat mini cast-iron skillets with cooking spray. Beat brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, beating until blended.

2. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add to butter mixture gradually, beating at low-speed until combined.

5. Bake in preheated oven until golden and set, about 15-20 minutes (adjust based on your oven), topping cookie with miniature marshmallows during the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Let stand 15 minutes.

I think you could play around with color if you wanted to make these “team-themed.”  Maybe swap colored m&ms instead of the chocolate chips or even top with a sprinkle color to make these even more tailgate-ready!
