Peanut Butter Brownie Skillet

Today is Chocolate Covered Cheetah’s 2nd Birthday! Time is flying by so fast, I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I hit publish on my first post! I am so thankful to have this little corner of the internet to connect with fellow foodies and share a peek into my kitchen!

I wanted to do something special for CCC’s 2nd birthday as a thank you to you, my readers and followers! So, over on my Instagram account I am running a GIVEAWAY for my favorite kitchen tool – a 12-inch Lodge Cast Iron Skillet! Click over and enter for your chance to win!

I really don’t know what I would do without my cast iron skillet! The ease of being able to use it on the stove top and transfer it to the oven makes it such a versatile tool, and HELLOooo easy clean up! Many of my favorite dinner recipes are made in my cast iron skillet, like these chicken thighs and this blackened salmon. And don’t forget about the game day skillet recipe I posted last week and these skillet scalloped potatoes! This skillet is not just for savory dishes though, remember these Monster Cookies!? And now this… introducing my new friend the Peanut Butter Brownie Birthday Skillet

Peanut Butter Brownie Skillet

For the brownie portion of this recipe I am using the base from my Mexican Chocolate Brownies (minus the spices) — they are made with coconut oil and it’s hands down my favorite brownie recipe ever! These brownies are in my top 5 favorite CCC recipes for sure! They come out perfectly every time and they literally transport you to chocolate heaven! Rich and super ooey gooey on the inside while still holding their form. Cooked up in a skillet + peanut butter swirl = you need a spoon and some sweatpants because you are going to want to devour it straight out of the oven! Or, if you are feeling generous and are exercising self-control, the Peanut Butter Brownie Skillet also slices easily into pieces to share 😉
