This dessert is best served warm out of the oven. Also, be careful not to overtake the cobbler or there won't be any of the incredible molten chocolate sauce. Trust me, you want the sauce!!
We served this with vanilla ice cream, but it would also be delicious with fresh whipped cream. Feel free to add some mint to the cobbler mixture before baking. I would start with 1/4 teaspoon - a little mint extract goes a long way!
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
- 1 cup flour
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 6 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium bowl whisk together 3/4 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, milk, 2 Tbsp cocoa powder and vanilla.
Pour melted butter into an 8x8-inch pan. Pour batter over melted butter.
In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup of sugar, 4 Tbsp cocoa powder and chocolate chips; sprinkle evenly over the batter.
Slowly pour boiling water over top of the cobbler.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes, until top of the cobbler looks set. Do not overcook or there won't be any yummy chocolate sauce.
