Dark Chocolate Chip Skillet Brownie

SERVES One large 10-inch brownie

Close your eyes . . . Imagine biting into a warm, chocolatey brownie. Yummm . . . . To make your dreams come true, make this skillet brownie -- it delivers the perfect chewy, chocolatey experience that you need and deserve. This recipe's chocolate flavor is enhanced with a sprinkle of flake salt for a delightful finish!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ̊F.
  2. In a small saucepan, brown the butter until just golden in color. The milk solids will separate and turn golden brown - this is what gives a nutty flavor to the end recipe, so be sure to scrape in all the browned bits!
  3. In a stand mixer or large bowl, mix the browned butter with the granulated sugar, and brown sugar until evenly incorporated. Stir in the egg, vanilla, and espresso; mix until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder until evenly combined.
  5. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter-sugar mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Transfer the brownie dough into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet add pat into place forming an even layer.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven until the brownie is just set in the center (the dough springs back to a light fingertip touch), 18 to 20 minutes. Let the brownie cool for 5 minutes and sprinkle with flake salt before serving. Serve warm wedges of the brownie with a side of vanilla ice cream.
