Old Fashioned Chocolate Cobbler

Fast And Easy Chocolate Cobbler

What is more delicious and satisfying than a decadent gooey chocolate dessert like old fashioned chocolate cobbler. When you hear the word cobbler what usually comes to mind is a sweet fruity dessert like my grandmother used to make. But after one bite of this chocolate pudding cake like dessert you'll never go back to that plain old cobbler recipe again.

I will admit I have never heard of this dish before. I look forward to trying it. Note, in your ingredients list you neglected to state 1/2 cup cocoa. I was able to figure it out in the directions part but, others may give up trying it with out reading on down. Might want to do an edit. Thanks for posting voted up and interesting

My mouth is watering just reading your chocolate cobbler recipe. I have to try it. I wonder if I can use Splenda instead of sugar? I'll let you know how it turns out.
