Bombshell Boxed Brownie Dessert Pan Pizzas
Author: Jackie Alpers
These individual brownie pan pizzas are baked and served in Lodge 3.5-inch cast iron skillets. You can use one 9-inch cast iron skillet instead if you prefer.
Serves 4 


  • 1 package brownie mix
  • ½ cup whipped cream cheese
  • ½ cup chopped mini candy bars such as Milky Ways or Snickers
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts or almonds
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup mini pretzels
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce for drizzle


  • Prepare the brownie mix according to package instructions. Fill the pans halfway up with batter and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (about 25 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, toast the coconut by arranging it in an even layer on a foil lined baking sheet and toasting it, just like you would a piece of bread. Remove the pans of brownies from the oven and let cool.
  • Spread an even layer of cream cheese over the brownies, Then scatter with the toasted coconut, which will resemble melted cheese.
  • Arrange the rest of the toppings and drizzle with caramel sauce.
