  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. 
  • Next, place all of the egg whites into a large metal bowl and whisk the egg whites together on high until stiff peaks form -- about 3-5 minutes. Set egg whites aside. 
  • Heat a 12-inch cast iron pan over medium heat. Add the bittersweet chocolate and butter into the cast iron. 
  • Stir the two ingredients together until glossy and smooth. 
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the egg yolks, brown sugar, and chocolate chips to the skillet pan. Whisk the egg yolks, sugar, and chocolate chips into the melted chocolate until combined and creamy. 
  • Finally, add the fluffy egg whites into the skillet and gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until completely combined. This may take time. 
  • Bake at 350ºF for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven and serve hot with 2-3 scoops of ice cream (we highly recommend peanut butter Ice cream).

Tips & Notes

  • Be sure you whisk the egg whites enough so that still peaks form but not so much that they become grainy. 
  • In step #5 when you remove the skillet from the heat, do not skip allowing the skillet to cool for 2 minutes before adding the egg yolks. You do not want the egg yolks to scramble.
