While the word cobbler drums up images of warm bubbling fruits peaking from behind a lattice of pastry work, this cobbler is made with fruits less valiant, sinful cousin, chocolate.  A tender crust of cakey chocolate pastry tops the warm soft goodness of  the rich fillings.

This is an interesting recipe to prepare.  The technical difficulty is easy, as stirring is at a minimum.   Serve warm from oven with ice cream or at room temperature.  Add nuts to the batter if you like.  All cobbler and chocolate lovers will love CHOCOLATE COBBLER.
