Mocha Fudge Cobbler!

This is one of those recipes that has “oh happy day” written all over it!

We know that if the word decadent is used along with chocolate, that pretty much sums it up. But I’ll go one step further just to clarify and add that it’s a decadent molten lava flow of hot syrupy chocolate hidden by more chocolatey mocha brownie goodness to indulge in with a slather of whipped cream or better yet, your favorite ice cream and more caramel syrup drizzled over top for good measure. {deep breath}

As you may have gathered, I’m a bit of a fan and would be extremely happy if my children learned to make this for my dinner one night – seriously dinner. OK, I would settle to have it for dessert, if I must.

If you are needing an easy peasy lemon squeezy dessert to have on hand and ready to make, this one is a must try. Most of the ingredients you probably already have in your pantry and if you are not a fan of coffee, just make the coffee really weak or try using instant hot chocolate instead. Yes, I know – more chocolate.

I came across this recipe a while back in the Southern Pie Book, and found no reason to tweak it except for the option of using instant hot chocolate in place of coffee if desired.

Yes, it’s insanely decadent and tastes gorgeous!
