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?
