Peanut Butter Snickers Brownie Skillet

Boy oh boy, why is it that every time I bake in a cast iron skillet I wanna just grab a fork and steal the whole thing to eat myself, lol!

This brownie should be outlawed. That is all.

Enjoy friends!

Let’s start by melting your butter then stirring in your chocolate chips.

Stir until melted. It’s ok if it’s not 100% smooth.

Time for some dry ingredients.

Pinch of salt ๐Ÿ™‚



Some brown sugar please.

Give a good mix.

Stir in some lovely eggs and a touch of oil.

Mix and it will look like this.

American Heritage Chocolate sent me some of their chocolate to sample and I used their block for these brownies. Umm….I could have eaten the whole block myself let’s put it that way ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes Please!

Stir in your chocolate chunks!

Pour half of batter into your cast iron skillet.

Spread evenly.

Ahhh, the peanut butter snickers. Love the square size.

Place them evenly over your brownie layer.

Spread remaining brownie layer over top of Snickers.

Bake and Voila’! Gorgeous. Dust with powdered sugar, makes it fancy ๐Ÿ™‚

See, told ya.

Nom Nom Nom.



Peanut Butter Snickers Brownie Skillet


  • 1 stick/8 tablespoons unsalted softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup all-purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups chocolate chunks, I used American Heritage Chocolate
  • 10 snack size Peanut Butter Snickers squares


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a 9 inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray.
  2. Place butter into a large mixing bowl and microwave until melted and hot, about 45 seconds or so. Pour in chocolate chips and stir until mostly melted. It’s ok, if it’s not perfectly smooth. Add flour, salt and sugars. Mix a few times then add egg yolks and oil. Mix until well combined then add chocolate chunks.
  3. Transfer half of the batter to prepared skillet, spreading evenly. Top with Peanut Butter Snickers then top with remaining brownie batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until cooked through.

Makes 9-12 Servings

    Hmmmm you’re killing a pregnant mom here! I’m pinning this for later! I’d love if you’d link it up to our weekly linky here

    The fact that you made a brownie rather than cookie in the skillet is awesome. I love skillet cookies & even though I’ve never had a skillet brownie, I bet it’s even better. And PB snickers, oh yes!

    Outlawed recipes are usually the best!

    When I worked at a rib place (what feels like ages ago) we made our brownie desserts in skillets, topped them off with huge balls of ice cream and whipped cream, chocolate shavings, the whole thing. There were days after an incredibly long shift that the only thing I could get in the mood for was making myself one of those skillets and drowning myself in it for an hour or so. Gosh, good memories!

    Good GRAVY! I’m glad you posted this BEFORE January 1st! Hmm… I wonder if I could make this, throw my face into the pan, clean up the mess, and cover the facial burns…all before my boyfriend gets home from work?! Think I might take a chance! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dayyyyum. Now I have to go buy a 9″ cast iron skillet. That is amazing and of course, you can use any type of candy. I’m imagining Fannie Mae Mint Meltaways in the middle of that as well.

    This looks Sooo good!! My hubby loves snickers squared so I would love to make this for him.. Only problem is that I don’t own a skillet. Can I make it in something else or would it not turn out the same?
