Decadent and Delicious Chocolate Cobbler Recipe

Decadent and Delicious Chocolate Cobbler Recipe

Nothing is quite as Southern as serving cobbler for dessert. You know I love me some Southern Peach Cobbler or Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler but what if you are craving something chocolate? Then you make this easy and delicious Chocolate Cobbler! It’s basically an easy way to make a molten lava cake.

Like my Peach Cobbler, the making of my chocolate cobbler may seem a bit unorthodox. Never fear, just follow the instructions and it will turn out just fine. I promise!
