With fall around the corner we’re looking forward to cooler weather and our comfort food favorites. There's nothing more comforting than a warm, ooey gooey fudge brownie. And when it's filled with fresh, juicy blackberries? Now that's the BEST way to welcome fall.
This dark chocolate and blackberry skillet brownie is just SO good! The Guittard cocoa rouge paired with blackberries makes for uber rich and moist brownies. Top this baby with a couple of scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and you've got happiness in a cast iron skillet. As they cook, these blackberries break down into a warm and gooey sauce that acts like a sweet syrup oozing on the ice cream. You guys- I can't get over how good this was. Can you tell?
If you feel like sharing, use a large cast iron skillet and you'll have enough for the whole family. If you're like me and love those crispy edges you usually find at the edges of a brownie pan, try cooking these in mini skillets! You'll have the perfect portion size and a glorious ring of crispy chocolatey goodness. How do you think you'll top your skillet brownie? Would you add pecans or walnuts?
