In the mood for something sweet, but don’t have ingredients or even a recipe? Then pull out the skillet for the easiest and best way to bake with these Skillet Desserts.
“Honey, do we have anything sweet to eat?”
Famous last words of my husband when we’ve run out of fruit or his reserve Homemade vanilla BB in the freezer.
It’s also the same feeling I get when someone calls on their way to the house and I have nothing to serve.
So that’s where skillet desserts come into the picture.
You could make it with a plan like Apple Fritter Skillet (see below) to emptying out the pantry and putting ANYTHING like leftover Valentine’s Day candy to make a Kitchen Sink Skillet (you don’t even need a recipe for this one.)
However the one requirement you do need to create skillet desserts is the SKILLET. (Keyword here.)
So first if you don’t have one, then maybe you should stop here. You could go order one or better yet, go talk to grandma to relinquish hers. Those are the best ones, anyways. Skillets aren’t just because they’re multi-purpose for cooking everything from a steak to desserts like these, but that they get better with time.
Just one thing before you put together your skillet dessert, you’ll need to season it make sure there’s no taste of chicken or steak in there from the time before. Just throw in a little butter, let it melt and stick it in the oven for a little while during the pre-heat. Then go for it.
First off, you don’t really need a recipe for this.
No, really, you don’t.
Open a box of brownie mix and follow the instructions on the box to make the dough.
Then open a box of chocolate chip cookie dough from the box. Read the instructions to make the dough.
Put the brownie mix in the skillet.
Then put the cookie dough in the skillet. I’d leave a little bit of brownie around the sides.
Now, if you really want to mix it up, then start adding stuff. Like anything.
- Chocolate chips
- Oreo bits
- Leftover candy
You get my drift. This is the part where I call it “Kitchen Sink Skillet Dessert.” Or if you prefer, you can call it something creative…but kitchen sink describes it well.
Then bake it as instructed, approximately 350-375 degrees for about 30-45 minutes. Done. Serve it with some vanilla ice cream (that is if you have any of that left.)
Yep, that’s easy, right?
Well then, if you liked that, then you’ll love the Apple Fritter/Apple Cinnamon Skillet we’re sharing soon!
But until then, let’s see how much skill it takes to make it go from this…
to this ooey-gooey, deliciousness.
