We Made This Hot Chocolate Brownie Skillet for All of You Who Are Single This Valentine’s Day

February 3, 2020

The thing about most baked goods is that their meant for sharing with at least three to four people. We’ve touched on this before; but it hits harder for the singles now that it’s almost Valentine’s Day. But whatever, right? This year is all about focusing on the most important person in your life: yourself. So take yourself out of whatever slump you’re in, and celebrate your romantic freedom with this brownie skillet that’s made just for you.

You’re (s)kill(et)ing it.

This recipe was inspired by Mexican hot chocolate. The addition of cayenne pepper highlights the cocoa-y flavor and the over-all sweetness of the dessert. More importantly, it’s a little reminder from us that you’re hot AF, despite gearing up to eat an entire brownie skillet by yourself. Top it off with your choice of ice cream—you truly deserve it, you independent king/queen.
