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.

  1. 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?

      1. 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.

  2. “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!

  3. 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?

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


  5. 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?
