Uncle Drew's Skillet Brownies

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"A recipe my Uncle Drew brought with him when he visited for our family reunion. I think we made about five batches of these rich, chocolaty goodies over the course of his stay! Top the brownie batter with shredded coconut or nuts if desired."

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes.
