Molten Chocolate Skillet Brownie

Baked right in our Executive Skillet, this decadent brownie has tunnels of chocolate sauce and is topped with toasted almonds.


  • 1 pkg (19-21 oz/440-450 g) fudge brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)
  • 1 bar (4 oz/100 g) fine quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 cups (500 mL) water
  • 1 jar (12 oz/350 g) chocolate fudge ice cream topping
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) Double-Strength Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sliced almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
  •  Powdered sugar
  •  Vanilla ice cream or thawed, frozen whipped topping (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray bottom of Executive (12-in.) Skillet (do not use stainless cookware) with nonstick cooking spray. In Classic Batter Bowl, prepare brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Spread batter over bottom of skillet. Cut chocolate into small pieces using Crinkle Cutter. Sprinkle chocolate evenly over batter.

  2. Combine water and ice cream topping in Large Micro-Cooker®; whisk until well blended using Stainless Whisk. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Whisk until blended; stir in vanilla. (Mixture will be thin.) Carefully pour ice cream topping mixture over brownie batter in a circular pattern.

  3. Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until sauce is bubbling around edges. (Top of brownie will appear very saucy, but will thicken as it cools.) Using Silicone Oven Mitt, carefully remove skillet from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack.

  4. Coarsely chop almonds using Food Chopper; sprinkle evenly over brownie. Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Spoon brownie into Simple Additions® Small Round Bowls using Nylon Spoon and serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
