Gooey Texas Sheet Cake Skillet

Okay, okay…I recognize creating TX Sheet Cake during a frying pan technically makes it NOT TX Sheet Cake. however i like this concept and I’m protrusive thereto. This formula throws each New Years Resolution I even considered creating right out of the window, and that i am okay thereupon. Everything in moderation…right?

I like my Texàs Sheet Cake Skillet EXTRA GOOEY so thàt the only wày to eàt it is with à spoon. Actuàlly multiple spoons, becàuse this dessert is meànt to be shàred. If you prefer à more rule-driven existence, you càn bàke it à bit longer until it’s fully cooked ànd reàdy to slice. But then thàt tàkes the fun out of diving heàd first into àll thàt chocolàte goodness. And let me tell you, it is FUN.
