  • Butter
  • Chocolate Spread – Your favorite chocolate spread will work. Nutella is popular, but Hershey’s has one without hazelnuts for an allergen-friendly alternative.
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Salt
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

How To Make Triple Chocolate Brownie Skillet

  • Preheat. Preheat your oven to 350º F, ensuring it’s ready to bake your delicious brownie creation to perfection.
  • Combine Wet Ingredients. In a large bowl, mix the butter and chocolate spread until well combined.
  • Incorporate Eggs and Sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and sugar to the bowl and mix until the eggs are fully incorporated. You should have a smooth and uniform mixture.
  • Add Dry Ingredients. Carefully incorporate the salt, flour, and cocoa powder into the mixture. Be mindful not to overmix. Then, fold in the chocolate chips to add an extra layer of indulgence.
  • Prepare Skillet and Pour Batter. Spray a 9-inch cast iron skillet with non-stick spray, ensuring even coverage. Pour the brownie batter into the skillet, leaving about a 1-inch border around the edge.
  • Bake Until Mostly Done. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the brownies are mostly done. The center may appear underdone, but don’t worry. It will continue to set as it cools.
  • Cool and Serve. Allow the brownies to cool slightly before serving. Top with ice cream, a drizzle of chocolate spread, and a sprinkling of chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Don’t Overmix the Batter. Be careful not to overmix the batter once you’ve added the dry ingredients to avoid a tough or dense texture in your brownies.
  • Add Extra Mix-Ins. Get creative and incorporate additional mix-ins like chopped nuts, caramel bits, or marshmallows.
  • Experiment with Toppings. Customize your brownie experience by experimenting with toppings such as whipped cream, fresh berries, or a drizzle of caramel sauce.
  • Don’t forget to leave a 1-inch border. When pouring the brownie batter into the skillet, leave a 1-inch border around the edges because the batter will spread while baking. This way, you’ll still enjoy a thick, gooey center and not too much crispiness. It’s all about balance! 
  • Remove the brownies from the oven before they’re fully cooked. The cast iron skillet retains heat and will continue to cook the brownies even after they’ve been pulled out. This prevents overbaking and ensures a gooey, fudgy center.

Can I use a different chocolate spread?

You can use any brand or variety of chocolate spread you prefer. Nutella and Hershey’s are popular choices, but feel free to experiment with your favorite brand. You could even use your own Homemade Nutella if you prefer.

How do I know when the brownies are done baking?

Bake the brownies for 25-30 minutes or until they’re mostly done. The center may appear slightly gooey, but this is normal. The residual heat from the cast iron skillet will continue to cook the brownies after removing them from the oven.

How do you store leftover brownie skillet?

Allow it to cool completely before covering it tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Alternatively, transfer individual portions to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven before serving.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate spread (Hershey, Nutella or any brand)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 whole large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. In a large bowl combine butter, and chocolate spread. Mix until well combined.
  3. Add eggs, vanilla and sugar, mix well until the eggs are fully incorporated.
  4. Mix in salt, flour, and cocoa powder until just combined, be careful not to over mix. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Spray a 9 inch cast iron skillet with non stick spray. Pour in brownie batter, leave about a 1 inch border around the edge of the pan (the brownies will spread when baking, and this prevents them from getting too crispy on the edges).
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until mostly done. The center will appear slightly gooey, but will continue to cook when you take it out of the oven.
  7. Let cool slightly. Top with ice cream, more chocolate spread, and chocolate chips to serve.


You can let the brownies cool completely, and slice into wedges to serve.

Oh my! Looks so good. Unfortunately, my kiddo has a life threatening peanut allergy, and that spread is manufactured on equipment that processes peanuts. Must. Find. Alternative.....

You can definitely make and just leave out the chocolate spread (up the cocoa powder to 1/2 cup to get enough chocolate flavor). Really any basic brownie recipe just baked in a skillet will work. If your son can do other nuts, maybe Nutella.

Oh, this is amazing. It's almost midnight here, but I'm tempted to run to the kitchen and start baking this very second :)
