Chocolate cobbler is one of the easiest to make and most decadent chocolate desserts. It is a super moist chocolate cake like brownie floating on top of rich hot chocolate sauce. It is the perfect dessert with homemade vanilla ice cream. And did I mention it was low fat! It only has 2 tablespoons of oil in the whole dessert. I have had this dessert as a child at church functions, but had forgotten about it till recently. I just reminded of this recipe again by a friend. I soon remembered that wonderful treat from my childhood that I had had just a few times, but had never made. When I started researching recipes, I realized what a low fat wonderful dessert this is. Here is a simple recipe of how to make chocolate cobbler.
