Chocolate Cobbler

Chocolate Cobbler - an incredibly decadent & delicious dessert!

Years ago, when we lived in Columbia, Missouri, Chris & I would frequent Mackenzie’s. It was a hidden gem in the midst of a not-so-busy strip mall. Completely unassuming, we walked in one evening for dinner & visited at least once a week for the remainder of our time in Columbia. The aroma of the wood-burning grill alone was enough to keep us returning, but everything from the salad to dessert was dream-worthy! Now, it’s a 2 hour drive to Mackenzie’s. While I think it would be worth it, it’s just not a feasible to travel with the family for dinner. For years, I’ve been recreating their chocolate cobbler & reliving those nights in our twenties. In fact, we prefer to enjoy our dessert at home. All too often I embarrass Chris by asking the server if their dessert is house made. When we’re lucky enough to receive a “yes” response, it’s usually disappointing. I like to make every. calorie. count. This chocolate cobbler recipe does – &, of course, it’s unbelievably easy! I like to prep it in the afternoon, refrigerating the dough until dinner is complete & then putting it in the oven for a piping hot decadent dessert.

This recipe was inspired my marshmallow & peanut butter cookie cobbler & salted caramel cookie cobbler desserts. I highly recommend you try them ALL!

Oh, I should mention that I like to serve it a la mode? Try my homemade vanilla or peanut butter for fall & peppermint ice cream for winter. Yes, peppermint ice cream. You’re welcome. I frequent the ice cream aisle every year anticipating it’s arrival! I have no shame.

  1. This looks fabulous, Julie!

  2. If you use small creme brulee dishes, how many does this recipe make?

  3. The cobblers sound yummy! Will keep them as a reference for later.
    Thank you!

  4. Oh, this looks so delicious! I will be making for my husband next weekend.

  5. This looks amazing!!! I’m in London and have never made a cobbler before, looking at the picture is the top just sugar? (i.e. are all ingredients essentially thrown in together then baked?)

  6. I’m a tad confused … everything, including the flour mixture is all poured in together? Does a cobbler’ish “crust” rise to the top? For reasons unknown, all the photos under the recipe are blurry on my iPad so it’s hard to tell exactly what the finished product is … a thick chocolate pudding (more or less) with a crust or a chocolate’y textured pudding with brown sugar on top?

  7. I have always been intimidated by cobbler, but this is so easy!
