This is the 2nd time i’m making this recipe. Last time it came out very well. But this time, it still had lot of liquid when i cut through.. not sure what went wrong :(

This is quick & easy when you need a chocolate fix. I did add pecans. It has a funny after taste that I can't identify.

Easy enough but it lacked flavor. Did it need vanilla?
Liked this cobbler who wouldn’t, its chocolate! I recommend adding more milk to the batter

It turned out great. I happened to have some vanilla ice cream in the freezer so that was the cherry on top. I did adjust the recipe because I read that others thought it was a little watery at the bottom. Instead of a cup and 3/4 of hot water I just put a cup and it turned out wonderfully:) It quenched my chocolate thirst and will be shared with my sister soonest! :) thanks!

This is a killer dessert. Took it to my charity knitting group and everyone loved it. Left the rest for the owners and weaving students at the back of the yarn shop. Exquisite! Too rich for more than 1 small square. Doubled the recipe.

It made my uterus purr. Came together quickly. Would make again.

It's more liquid than cobbler

It was okay but needs something. Maybe chocolate chips and vanilla. Definitely very sweet.

It was chocolate bread pudding/cake with puddingy fudge. It turned out so good and was very easy. It made enough for lots of leftovers.

Sooooo good! The 2nd time I made this, I doubled it!❣It's so easy to make, I made my own whipped cream to serve on it😍

I've had a version of this before, but this one nails it! We all loved it! I will be making this often as a quick dessert as the ingredients are simple and I usually have them on hand.

I grew up with this as a family favorite. We called it Devil's Float! We all loved it served with ice cream or with heavy cream poured over it!

I love chocolate! A weakness. I am also a peach cobbler fan so this was idea to try. It was so easy and my husband and brother in law thought it was amazing! I like to play around with recipes sometimes and also added 3 Tablespoons of raspberry preserves I had in the fridge. It worked... Just a slight hint of raspberry flavor in it. It does thicken up more like syrup after it has cooled for a little while as well. Leftover heated in the microwave ...yum. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
