  • 1 stick unsalted butter (½ cup)
  • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate chips (a heaping ½ cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup granulated cane sugar
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon, Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour (or regular all-purpose flour), divided (we use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips (we like milk chocolate)
  • Optional: ice cream, chocolate sauce, for serving


  • Preheat grill to 350°F, and prepare for indirect cooking.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter and 4 oz (½ cup) chocolate chips, stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest 10 minutes to come down in temperature.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, and sugar. When the melted chocolate butter mixture is cool, gently stir it into the egg mixture.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together ½ cup of flour, cocoa powder, and salt, then add to the chocolate mixture.
  • Toss the remaining ¾ cup of chocolate chips in a small bowl with 1 tablespoon of flour, then gently fold the chocolate chips into the liquid chocolate mixture.
  • Pour batter into an oiled 10" cast iron pan, then place it in the center of the grill over indirect heat. Bake on the grill for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (this will depend on the exact temperature of your grill). Allow to cool, then serve with ice cream, or favorite toppings.


Note on Flour: We use Gluten Free 1-to-1 flour in our cooking (for our kid's sake), but you can easily substitute regular all-purpose flour if you are not gluten-free.
Store Bought Mix: We've also done skillet brownies with store-bought packaged brownie mixes. Just follow the package directions and place the mix into a cast iron skillet, and cook until a toothpick comes out clean.
