Without a doubt my Adventures in Chocolate recipes get more views than any other categories I post to. So when my mom-in-law told me about a dessert she enjoyed recently….Chocolate Cobbler, I knew that would be the next dessert added to the pages of Lemony Thyme.
This recipe originated on the pages of Where Flours Bloom. A lovely site with lots of wonderful recipes, including this one for Chocolate Cobbler.
I made this dessert for my Thanksgiving Luncheon at the office yesterday. I came home the night before to put it together and within 10 minutes I had the ingredients jarred up and ready for transport in the morning. This is a no fuss super simple recipe made from ingredients likely already in your pantry. Sadly however, the Chocolate Cobbler was lost in a sea of 30+ other dishes and therefore did not truly get it’s time to shine…until today at 5:00 pm.
I was collecting casserole dishes and leftovers from our office break room and called out one last invitation to the sales floor….”does anyone want some Chocolate Cobbler before I take it home?” Chocolate Cobber? What!? Where was that? Before I knew it the microwave door flew open and in went the first bowl full. “You know… there’s vanilla ice cream in the freezer.” You would have thought we won the lottery!! All we could here was “Oh – my – god – I – am – sooo – happy…hehehe” Based on our afternoon Chocolate Cobbler Party….this Adventure in Chocolate was a hit.
