Ingredients
  • 1 cup (226g) butter, melted then cooled slightly
  • 2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup (80g) unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 cup (128g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 19 Oreo Cookies
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Melt butter and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. 

  4. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the vanilla. Add in the butter and gently stir dry ingredients.

  5. 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 don't stick. I used a non-stick spray.)

  6. 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!

  7. Bake for about 35 minutes. Because the skillet retains heat so well you will want to remove them a couple of 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. 

  8. Optional: Top with ice cream and crushed oreo. I highly recommend eating directly from the pan! 🙂

Oreo Brownie in a Skillet

Skillet Oreo Brownies

I am obsessed with skillet baking. I love how evenly and perfectly everything cooks! Making a decadent brownie recipe with hidden Oreo’s and ice cream on top is probably one of the easiest ways to impress friends and family. It comes together so fast no one will know that you weren’t slaving away in the kitchen!

How to Make Oreo Brownies

Mix up a batch of brownies.  (recipe below) 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 don’t stick. I opted for a non-stick spray and will just season the skillet with bacon grease after I have eaten the entire pan. Um, I mean after we have finished eating them all.

Skillet Oreo Brownies Recipe

 

 

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!

Easy Skillet Oreo Brownies

 

Bake for about 35 minutes.  Because the skillet retains heat so well you will want to remove them a couple of 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.

On nothing! No matter how you eat these they will taste amazing!

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, that’s 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?

    • Amanda says:

      Yes! 1/3 goes on the bottom then the remaining 2/3’s gets poured over the top. Sorry about that!

      • Patricia says:

        If you use the mini (3-1/2 inch) iron skillet you could eat the brownie right from the pan; or serve each guest their own skillet.

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says:

    I 100% need these in my life. OH MY!!

  • Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness says:

    “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!

  • Liz @ Virtually Homemade says:

    Oh my – those look amazing! And so simple. Pinned 🙂

  • Brenda @ SweetSimpleStuff says:

    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?

  • Sandy R. says:

    Does prepping a skillet with drool count? 🙂 Yum

  • Amanda says:

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

  • Sarah says:


    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?

  • greedy Girl says:

    just…wow

  • Meagan @ A Zesty Bite says:

    I am now going to be craving this all day long!

  • Christy says:

    Oh my yumminess! Seriously, what are you doing to me?

  • Oh my gosh, what a wonderful and most beautiful skillet dessert, EVER!! I’m in love!

  • Shiran @ Pretty. Simple. Sweet. says:

    Wow. That looks so good. I’m actually eating a brownie right now and I wish mine was in a skillet too!

  • Charity says:

    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!

    • Amanda says:

      Of course!

      • sarah bumb says:

        can I use a 9x 13 baking pan or does the shillet make a difference

        • Amanda says:

          You can try it in a pan, but I have not make it that way so cannot testify to its effectiveness. 🙂

  • Roger says:

    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?”.

  • Samantha says:

    What temperature do you bake the brownies at?

  • Alyssa @ Piece of Home says:

    This makes me really happy.. and not so happy too! I’m supposed to have New Year Resolutions right now not be dreaming about how amazing this will taste.. tonight haha! YUM YUM YUM! This is going to be my downfall this month, I can feel it already! Thanks for sharing the goodness!

  • Felesha says:

    I tried this with PB Snickers. So yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  • Kim says:

    Am I correct to assume you bake it on the temperature as directed on the Brownie Mix

  • Rose says:

    Nice one cake

  • Regina Hudson says:

    I don’t have any chocolate Oreos on hand but I have vanilla , I will spread some peanut butter on the top which gives it another layer of flavor and I might even top the cookies with some marshmallows before pouring the rest of the batter. I like to experiment. What size of pan were you using? Thank you for the recipe.

    • Amanda says:

      Oooohhhh, sounds fun! I used a 12-inch skillet. 🙂
