I was first introduced to a Pizookie (pizza + cookie) in college. My roommate and I would head over to BJ’s late at night when we were craving warm chocolate chip cookies and ice cream. We’d each polish off one of these bad boys while we laughed our heads off. Good times!
These are so easy to make at home. My version of the famous BJ’s Pizookie is Salted Rolo Chip. The sea salt gives a nice edge to the sweetness of the cookie dough studded with miniature Rolo candies.
While the skillet cookie is still warm from the oven, you add a big scoop of ice cream…
Homemade hot fudge doesn’t hurt a bit…
A little more…
Actually, I take that back. You’re going to need two scoops of ice cream…
Now you can dig in. The ice cream starts to melt into the warm cookie in the best way…
Sweet, gooey, creamy, melty, chocolatey perfection. I guess after all these years, this is still my happy place!
