TRUST ME.........this may be one of the best desserts I have ever put in my mouth! This is coming from someone who 'likes' chocolate but doesn't 'love' it. If given a choice I would probably choose lemon or coconut pie over chocolate any day. However, when I see a recipe that someone says is delicious (and easy) I usually try it. I wish I could tell you where I saw this recipe. I know it was on a blog that I visit regularly (but you don't want to know how many this actually is). Being a country girl....cobblers are a dessert of choice....but I've always made apple, peach, strawberry, etc. and never chocolate. I copied this recipe from the blog (sorry, again, that I can't give proper credit) and baked it for supper (yes, country again....at night it's called supper). I had all the ingredients already at home....bet you do to. Here's the recipe.
Melt 2 sticks of butter in a 9 X 13 dish
Mix the following together in a bowl:
1 1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 c self-rising flour
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c of milk (plus a smidgen---I used almost a cup)
Pour this over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR...just drizzle the above over the butter.
In another bowl mix the following:
1 c sugar
5 tbsp. cocoa
Just SPRINKLE this over the mixture (I used my fingers). Again DO NOT STIR....just sprinkle.
Now add 2 cups of boiling water over the top of all of the above. DO NOT MIX....just pour over (covering all the dry mixture you just sprinkled).
Bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes.
Oh, my goodness!!!!! My son-in-law gave it top rating! Please let me know if you try this and like it.
