Cast Iron Skillet Oreo Brownies

This is one of those, “I just want to eat the most fattening ridiculous thing possible,” kind of treats.

Oreo Brownie in a Skillet

 

I dont even have a “recipe” to share.

Not a from-scratch one anyway.  This is boxed brownies.  With Oreo’s.  And vanilla ice cream.

Basically one notch below rocket science.

Here is what I did:

Mix up a batch of brownies.  (Feel free to use your favorite from-scratch recipe)

Prepare your cast iron skillet. (Everyone does this differently it seems, so just make sure you prepare it in a way that will ensure your brownies dont stick.)

Pour 1/3 of your brownie batter into your prepared skillet.

I used 19 Oreo’s and placed them over the batter.  Pour remaining 2/3 of batter over Oreo’s.  Be sure to cover them all!

Bake for about 35 minutes.  Since the skillet retains heat so well you will want to remove them a couple minutes before they are completely done.  I inserted a toothpick at 35 minutes and when it was removed there were a few tiny wet crumbs.  This is good.

Very good.  Ooey Gooey good.

Take the brownies out of the oven and let them sit for about five minutes.  Then scoop some vanilla ice cream over the top and drizzle with a few crushed Oreo’s.  You can also glop some Hot Fudge on.  Maybe even some marshmallow topping.  Or caramel.  Or butterscotch sauce.

I have no idea why I capitalized Hot Fudge.  It just seemed right.

Then cut yourself a slice.  And stop and take a picture because that would be pretty.  Or lose all control and start eating and then remember you need to take a picture.

I, uh must have been going for a “rustic” image here.  Yeah, thats it.

    Looks amazing! I’ve tried the brownie mix+oreo combo before (+cookie dough, because it needed to happen), but never in a skillet.
    Quick question though – you wrote that you put 1/3 of the batter down first…then I assume top with the other 2/3s, or did you only use 1/3 of the batter?

    “I just want to eat the most fattening ridiculous thing possible,” kind of treats – every day of my life.
    And now I can because this looks simple and easy. So my tummy loves your for posting this, but not my waistline.
    However, my waistline can just suck it up. Probably literally.
    I love that you capitalized Hot Fudge. Sometimes it really just does seem necessary.
    Pinned!

    I probably didn’t need to see this today … have no Oreo’s in the house … won’t be happy until I make it and have a piece :) I’ve been using my cast iron skillets for more and more cooking/baking lately and love them! What size skillet did you use?

    Looks amazing! Can I use a more traditional baking tin? Or is there something special about the iron skillet? Don’t have one :)

    I have a 10.5″ cast iron skillet, which is on the smaller size of cast irons… the only one I have and use (which is seasoned and never has touched water). Will that size work for the brownies?

    I am a huge baker and brothers love brownies so i might have to try sometime but instead of vanilla ice cream use chocolate or frozen yogurt flavored instead!

    The brownie looks fantastic and easy to make. The only problem I have is it is Oreos, not Oreo’s. Writing “Oreo’s” makes it possessive and I always think “Oreo’s what?”.
