Cherry chocolate cobbler

    55 min

    An easy cobbler recipe that combines the usual cobbler topping with chocolate. A base of cherry fruit filling from a tin makes it dead easy to make. Serve warm with a bit of cream or ice cream for an irresistible pud. You can use chopped plain chocolate instead of the chocolate chips, if desired.

    The last reviewer is correct. I am the submitter of this recipe and the can of cherry pie filling should be 21 oz, not 12.  -  10 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good & easy. I followed the recipe exactly except for the cherry pie filling. I think the recipe is supposed to say 21 oz instead of 12 oz. I couldn't find a 12 oz can in the store & when I spread the 21 oz can over the bottom, it just barely covered. It took me over than 15 mins to prepare but maybe I was being slow. It cooked for exactly 40 mins. We serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. Thanks.  -  23 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Super yummy! Not the best ever, but really REALLY good! Used light cherry pie filling and lower fat butter (Brummel & Brown's) to cut down on sugar, fat and calories.  -  20 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
