Well, it’s nearly time for another holiday, Valentine’s Day of course! Valentine’s Day has never been a big deal for our family. We usually make each other homemade cards and make pizza from scratch. So no crazy restaurant dinners overpriced flowers or anything like that here. Although, we are always down for some delicious dessert. Whether you love of hate this holiday I think we can all agree that this Skillet Brownie Sundae is a must. Whether you are sharing with a lover, indulging on your own, or sharing with a friend this chocolate explosion will bring a smile to your face and heart. Top with extras like ice cream, hot fudge and strawberries for the perfect finish.

What Do You Need To Make A Skillet Brownie Sundae?

The kitchen tools you will need for this easy skillet brownie recipe are:

The ingredients you will need for this Skillet Brownie Recipe are:

  • Butter

  • Salt and Baking Powder

How Do I Make A Skillet Brownie Sundae?

Exactly like a regular brownie, just a mini version! This easy brownie recipe is perfect for Valentine’s Day or a date night in!

  1. Combine your sugar and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Whisk together for about a minute.
  2. Add in the vanilla extract and egg to the same bowl and whisk for another minute.
  3. Combine the remaining skillet brownie ingredients to the bowl and gently stir in until just combined.
  4. Finally, add the brownie batter into the iron skillet and bake on the center rack at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. You will know the skillet brownie is finished when a toothpick comes out mostly clean.

Serve the brownie for two with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Note: Personally, I just like using a whisk for this brownie sundae recipe, but you could also use a electric hand or stand mixer instead. The brownie batter amount is just so small I don’t like having to wash my big mixer, but do whichever method you prefer! 

Tip: Make sure to not over-stir the brownie batter when you add in the dry ingredients. This will help the brownies get a nice fudgey texture.

Skillet Brownie Recipe Serving Suggestions

This skillet brownie sundae is dang delicious on its own. You could easily just take a spoon and dig in strait away, or you could add on some extras to make your skillet brownie into a next level sundae. My personal favorite toppings are:

  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Hot Fudge
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Whipped Cream

Of course you could add anything from caramel, cookies and cream ice cream, sliced banana or whatever you have. This skillet brownie recipe can be customized to your liking and preference, so let your creativity fly! If you find some awesome combos I would love to hear about them in the comment section.

Can I Make This Skillet Brownie for Two Recipe Bigger?

ABSOLUTELY! A very common size iron skillet in everyone’s kitchen cabinet is the 10 or 12 inch size. If you do not have a mini skillet and instead would just like to use what you have I completely understand. Luckily, it is very simple to convert this skillet brownie recipe to accommodate a larger skillet.

Plus, more yummy skillet brownie so that is always a win. Simply double all of the ingredients of the recipe and follow the exact same prep steps. Also, keep the same baking temperature; but extend the cook time. I would start with baking the skillet brownie for 30 minutes and checking it and adding an additional 5 minutes if needed. It is finished baking when a toothpick comes out mostly clean, so just go by that!

Easy Brownie Sundae Leftover Storage

IF (let’s be real there won’t be any brownies left) you have leftover chocolate brownies you can store covered at room temperature for up to 7 days. If you have put ice cream or other dairy products on top then you would need to discard of any leftover brownies.

Alternatively, you could freeze the brownie sundae for up to 1 month. Place in a freezer safe container or wrap in foil. Let the chocolate brownie de-thaw in the fridge, or microwave the brownie for 30-60 seconds until warmed through.

Happy Eating!
