When you pour it on top of the ice cream it hardens, almost like a peanut butter shell over the ice cream… amazing friends!

  1. What size skillet is Mini? Can this be doubled or tripled for a larger skillet, say for a 10inch? If so, how long would you bake for? Does anyone have the answers or have experimented with this yet?

    1. Hi Carol,

      My mini skillets are 5″ skillets. You definitely can use a larger skillet. This recipe makes four 5″ skillets. If you use a larger skillet you’ll just need to leave it in longer and watch it. I personally have not made 1 large one, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work, just can’t give you a time on it. Let me know if you do so I can update the info for others.

  2. Please HELP..I do not have a 6.5″ iron skillet. I have a 10 ” would I double the recipe and bake longer?? Having dinner guests in two days. Please respond!! thank you…this will be a huge hit.

  3. Ok. I am obsessed with peanut butter, and this looks like heaven. I cannot wait to try this. Plus, I can finally use the pazookie pan I got for my wedding a few years ago. 🙂

  4. Hello! I only have a 10-inch Lodge! Any idea of how long I would bake in that? Really want to try this. =)

  5. Oh my gosh, this looks really good! I am a fan of peanut butter! My husband laughs at me because one of my favorite things to eat is peanut butter and jelly. Now you’ve added more things to my lineup.
