MY favorite Christmas gift:)


Ok...... so some of you might think, why is she writing this delicious dessert post, when she just previously wrote a post about healthy eating. Well, that is the beauty of intuitive eating:) It is ok to have desserts! Hard to believe, huh!:) Anyhow- this Christmas and my most used Christmas gift EVER probably (even though I have only had it for a handful of day) is SKOOKIE!! These are AMAZING! I was first introduced to the "skookie" at The Pizza Factory in Provo- but it is called a Never on Sundae there. Anyways, I have been mimicking the Never on Sundaes for a really long time now- and would just put them on a plate when they came out vs. keeping them in a skillet. Now- I have the skillets:) I have also added this item in my store- because it is DEFINITELY one of my most favorite desserts ever!! With the skookie you get a chocolate chip cookie mix or brownie mix (whichever you choose), you get 2 skillets, 2 skillet holders, and a recipe book for other things to keep warm on the skillet. I usually serve them with Bluebell Home made vanilla ice-cream and then hot fudge, carmel sauce and whip cream! It is to DIE for! I had it recently as the dessert at my New Years Eve party, and it was a HIT!! People who were not dessert people were going back for 2nds:) So- if you love warm cookies/brownies/cold ice-cream and toppings-- I say GO for it! You can also make these in the round cake pan- that is what I had to do, til I got these:) Bon apetit!

Oh that looks SO yummy! I am trying to lose about 10 pounds and sweets are my weakness so that just makes my mouth water.

I got one of these for christmas too! We've made pizza's on them and they are so good! So, do you eat right out of it? I've never had one...

For the cookies i mean...

Yes! You just take it out of the oven, and then put the ice cream and toppings and top, and eat right out of the skillet!! It keeps the cookie super warm:)

Jill they are super yummy! You should eat one of these as a reward when you reach your goal:) However- I really don't see where you need to lose the 10 lbs. :)

I love these! They make these at a place in Logan (where we lived for 4 years) called "The Firehouse". ONly, they called them a "Pizzookie". Love them, love them, love them! I need to get me one of those.

Cheddars has them but calls them Cookie Monster. My mom and I used to go get them semi-regularly back in MI. Now that one is closed. I forget we have one here. I have semi-funny story about them. My brother went to get one and our recently-hired waitress brought it to us. We couldn't place what was wrong with it at first. Then I figured out it didn't have the ice cream. She put all the hot fudge, whipped cream, etc. but no ice cream. I can't believe it took me a few bites to nail that down.
