Death by Chocolate Skillet Brownie

This brownie uses only enough flour to hold it all together, keeping the center super-rich and fudgy.

Test Kitchen Note: We originally developed this recipe to serve 2 in a 5-inch skillet. Since then, we have retested and adjusted the recipe to be baked in a 10-inch skillet to feed more people. If you’d like to bake this recipe in a 5-inch skillet, you’ll just need a third of the ingredients called for.
