  • Gas Grill
  • 8" Cast Iron Skillet
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Whisk
  • Mixing bowl


  • 7 tablespoons 85 g dairy-free butter, cut into pieces, room temperature, divided
  • cup 43 g cornstarch
  • ¼ cup 32 g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 ½ cups 320 g semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • ¾ cup 96 g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup 128 g chopped toasted pecans (optional)


  • Preheat your grill or oven to 350-400F. Grease an 8-inch cast-iron skillet with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave 6 tablespoons butter and 1½ cups of chocolate in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until melted and smooth, about 2 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Whisk in the sugar and vanilla. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, until combined. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir vigorously until the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in ¼ cups chocolate chips and the pecans.
  • Pour the batter into the skillet and smooth the top. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips on the top.
  • Grill, covered, until a tester pick inserted in the middle of the brownies comes out with a few crumbs, 35 to 40 minutes. Check every 5 minutes after 30 minutes. If baking in the oven, bake for 35 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in the skillet.
