Chocolate Cobbler

Chocolate Cobbler.  Have you ever heard of it?   I sure hadn’t.  And anything with the name chocolate in it, I thought I knew about.  Nope.  Not this one.

My co-workers said it was delicious!  The “cake” was delicious and a little crunchy on top.  (Not the burnt crunchy, but the yummy sugary crunchy.)  The chocolate was a pudding chocolate as opposed to a fudgy center.  And it seriously tasted like homemade chocolate pudding.  How can you go wrong with that combination, right?

And the best part?  IT WAS SO EASY TO MAKE!  I love recipes like this!

* 2 sticks butter
* 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
* 1 1/2 cups sugar
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 3/4 cup milk
* 1 cup sugar
* 5 Tbsp. cocoa powder
* 2 cups boiling water

Melt the butter in a 9×13 pan.

In a bowl, mix flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, vanilla and milk.  Pour over melted butter but DO NOT MIX!

In another small bowl, mix 1 cup sugar and cocoa powder.  Sprinkle over flour mixture in the pan but DO NOT MIX!  Just sprinkle over the top.

Now pour 2 cups boiling water over the cocoa/sugar mixture.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes.

It’s best served warm (because what isn’t?)

You could top with vanilla ice cream (yum) or whipped cream.

  10. I had heard of fruit cobblers but chocolate cobbler — nope. It looks and sounds delicious. And, most important, easy. I must try this. I will probably eat it with either whipped cream or ice cream — yummy.
