Recipe Notes

  • You can also melt the chopped chocolate and butter in the microwave using a medium microwave-safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring after each.
  • All ovens and skillets are different, so keep an eye on your skillet brownie after 28 minutes and use the toothpick test to see when it’s finished.
