Chocolate Brownie S'more Skillet is the ultimate way to spice up a classic fudge brownie. Made in a skillet, topped with jumbo marshmallows, and roasted to perfection, this s'more brownie is the best dessert! Grab a spoon or two (if you're thinking about sharing), and dive right into this gorgeous brownie goodness!!!
Butter: Unsalted or salted- you choose! I always use unsalted butter when I bake. If you do use salted, just take out the salt in the recipe! You'll melt the butter in the microwave or over the stovetop. Let it sit for just a few minutes before adding it to your sugars.
Sugars: BOTH granulated sugar and brown sugar make this recipe moist, flavorful, and rich. Don't skip out on the brown sugar please!
Eggs: Don't worry about room temperature eggs here. I wish I could give you the exact science, but using cold eggs in your brownies makes the FUDGIEST, CHEWIEST brownies! Trust me on this one... especially since it saves you a step!
Vanilla Extract: What's new? Even though these brownies scream chocolate, vanilla extract helps to enhance the flavor!
Flour: All-purpose flour for the win! Bleached, unbleached... whatever you have will work! There's a pretty small amount of flour in this, but that is normal for rich, fudgy brownies!
Cocoa Powder: This is where the chocolate flavor comes from, so make sure you are using a brand you like! Make sure that you use UNSWEETENED cocoa powder!
Salt: Salt, in proper amounts, brings out sweetness! If you are using salted butter, you can reduce it or leave it out!
Chocolate Chips: Any type you have on hand will work! Milk, dark, semisweet. white are all fabulous options. Chocolate chunks would be great too! You honestly don't have to add them if you don't have any laying around!
Marshmallows: I love using jumbo marshmallows. I just think it looks so gorgeous! You can use mini marshmallows if that's easier or if that's what you have!
I bake this recipe in an 8 inch cast-iron skillet. Here is the specific pan I use. Using a cast-iron skillet creates an ooey-gooey brownie center! If you do use one, be sure to follow the instructions your pan has for preparation, cleaning, and storage!
Melted butter, the combination of both granulated sugar and light brown sugar, a smaller flour amount, and bake time all help to create chewy brownies. Make sure you do not overbake your brownies. A toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies should NOT come out clean. It should have slightly wet batter.
If you do not have a broil setting, you can use a kitchen blow-torch to roast the marshmallows. If that doesn't work for you, simply pop your pan back in the oven for about 2 minutes to soften the marshmallows!
- ½ cup butter, melted
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 2 eggs, cold
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup all purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 15 jumbo marshmallows, sliced in half
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare your skillet as instructed by your pan company.
- Melt butter in the microwave in 30 second increments or over the stove in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not brown the butter. Let the butter sit for 2-3 minutes before moving forward.
- In a large bowl, combine melted butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar with a wooden spoon until incorporated. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
- Add flour, unsweetened cocoa, and salt. Stir until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
- Transfer the batter to your prepared skillet, spreading evenly.
- Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center will come out with both thick crumbs and a slight amount of wet batter. The top of the brownie will be crusted.
- Remove the skillet from the oven. Switch your oven to broil. Line your halved jumbo marshmallows along the top of the brownies. Place the skillet back in the oven until the marshmallows are lightly golden and toasty. If you don’t have a broil setting, you can still add the marshmallows. They will not turn golden, but they will be ooey and gooey!
