Chocolate Cobbler

Country cooking is my favorite...to me, a country cook can use everyday ingredients that are in the cupboard to make comfort food that connects us to a simpler time, makes new memories in the present, and is a taste treat that we often joke about being "love in a bowl...or on a plate." So, today I am sharing a recipe that could easily fill the bill...Old Time Chocolate Cobbler.
