On a ‘Quest’ for a Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae Skillet- aka Heaven in my Mouth

After divulging my latest accomplishment of a chocolate chip cookie sundae on instagram, some of you have a hankering for the recipe. This was inspired by the most glorious dessert from a local crowd-pleasing restaurant, Redstone American Grill.

rsmarltonoutsideWhere, soon enough we will be able to eat outside on the patio again… Let the countdown begin!


I basically winged the ice cream portion of this dessert so I will try my best to offer some sort of measurement but it may be a case of keep tweaking it until it tastes up to par. The cookie was the easy part!

Ingredients- Makes 3 servings:

((Chocolate Chip Cookie))

– Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest Bar: as many bars as servings you would like to make, 1 bar per serving

((Strawberry Protein Ice Cream))

– [Approximately] 1 C Frozen Strawberries

– 2 Light & Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurts

– 2 Scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I use EAS)

– 1t Vanilla

– 1T Xanthan gum  (I found a single-serving packet at Shop Rite. Bigger servings are more expensive and I haven’t baked with it enough to warrant the purchase… yet. Ntm I didn’t even use the whole packet for this one!)

– 1-2 cups ice

– 3T mini chocolate chips (for garnish)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

While oven preheats begin your ice cream concoction.

2. Blend yogurt, protein, and strawberries; add in xanthan and vanilla & blend again

3. Fold in ice. Throw a few cubes in, blend, test your consistency. Continue to add ice until thickened

4. ‘Ice cream’ will actually be more like very thick shake {compliments of the frozen fruit, xanthan gum, and ice}, but not quite a scoopable ice cream. –> The longer you give it time to thicken up in the freezer, the more ice cream-like it will become. But #aintnobodygottimeforthat

Put the ice cream in your freezer and revert your attention to your cookie goodness.

5. Microwave quest bars for 10-15 seconds

6. Fit and press each quest bar into a 4″ mini-baking pan (I purchased a 3-pack at AC Moore for about $5)

7. Bake in oven for 8 minutes

8. When cookies are done, do not allow them to cool as you typically would. Quest bars cool quickly and the concept of this dessert is a warm cookie with ice cream. Get them right onto a plate, grab your ice cream, divvy it up, sprinkle chocolate chips on each andddd voila!

*Side note: My ice cream-to-cookie ratio was way over, so I just used what I needed and jarred the ice cream to have another day 🙂
