Skillet Brownie Sundaes in small cast iron skillets.

Hey y’all! Serene from House of Yumm back with you today. And today I’m bringing you a small batch Skillet Brownie Sundae recipe. The combination of warm gooey brownie with cold ice cream is a definite winner.

Plus sprinkles and cherries just make me happy. Not to mention cooking in skillets. Something about skillets make everything seem more comforting to me.

The brownie recipe is adapted from the recipe I used for the Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies. Except this time around I wanted them extra gooey. So I added melted chocolate to the batter. And extra large chocolate chunks. Just to make sure there would be enough chocolate.

The brownie recipe makes just enough to fill up two 5 inch cast iron skillets. I say this recipe is made for 2 since the skillets are small. But honestly once you load the brownie up with all the good stuff on top two people could probably share one, if you’re into sharing that is.

You could also enjoy the brownie all on it’s own. But I highly recommend adding at least the ice cream on top. There’s just something about the combination of warm brownie topped with ice cream that makes everything right in the world.

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 ounces semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
