Chocolate Cobbler!

 
 
 "Chocolate Cobbler" is probably one of my all time favorite desserts!  If you have ever had it, you know it is totally sinful and delicious, especially for us chocolate lovers.  Cracker Barrel serves this on their dessert menu, but this dessert has been around for many years.  It goes by several different names actually, but I like the name "Chocolate Cobbler"!   This is what you will need for this decadent dessert:
 
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 cup self rising flour
3/4 cups sugar
2 Tbs. cocoa powder
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1  1/2 cups boiling water
 
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Place the stick of butter in an 11"x7" or a 9"x9" baking pan and place in the oven just until melted. 
 
In a mixing bowl, stir the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 Tbs. cocoa powder, pecans, milk and vanilla together.  Pour over the butter, but do not mix.
 
In another bowl combine the other 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup cocoa powder.  Sprinkle evenly over the batter in the pan. Do not mix.  
 
Pour the boiling water evenly over the top.  Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove and cool just slightly.   This is supposed to still be runny underneath the top to some degree.  Don't over bake it!
 
Serve while warm with ice cream or....
 
add whip cream and cherry to go all out!!!
