  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter in mixer until light and fluffy. Add in cookie dough mix and water and mix well.
  3. Add in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and mix until chips are well distributed.
  4. Divide dough in half. Place half into greased cast iron skillet, patting to spread dough evenly across bottom and up the sides a little.
  5. Place unwrapped Reese's cups atop the cookie dough. Fill in the spaces between the peanut butter cups with the 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  6. Place the remaining cookie dough over the top, spreading evenly to cover.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until edges are brown.


  1. To make the chocolate sauce, melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate together in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Add sugar, cocoa, heavy cream, and salt. Stir until combined. Bring slowly to a low boil, stirring only once or twice to make sure sugar has dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  4. To "make" peanut butter sauce, place peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30-45 seconds until peanut butter is runny.

To Serve

  1. Scoop out some cookie, top with ice cream and sauces. Serve immediately.
