Chocolate Cobbler

Last year at work I was put in charge of helping put together a cookbook as a give-away for a lovely fundraiser.  Attendees were asked to submit recipes to be included in the book and the fabulous caterer who was in charge of the food who choose several recipe to be the "winner".  This recipe received the blue ribbon prize!  Seemingly simple and easy it is truly one of the most decadent, delicious, sinful (and any other word that relates to these adjectives) dishes I have ever eaten.  As Dolly Parton so eloquently states in Steel Magnolia's "It's so rich I cut the sweetness with ice cream" and my friends I think that is true here as well!

Chocolate Cobbler

2 sticks butter
3 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups self rising flour
½ cup and 3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup milk
1 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in a 9x13 dish. 
Mix together 1 ½ cups sugar, vanilla, flour, 3 tablespoons of cocoa, milk and pour into butter. DO NOT STIR. 
In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups sugar, ½ cup cocoa. 
Sprinkle sugar and cocoa mixture over the other mixture. DO NOT STIR. 
Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and drizzle over the entire dish. 
Bake for 30 to 45 minutes. 
Let stand for at least 10 minutes to set. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
**Can make in individual ramekins. Just divide out evenly
the individual ingredients as shown above and DO NOT
STIR. Bake at 30 minutes

I recently made this for a holiday lunch at work which we had at my friend and co-worker, Lisa's house and as you can see, we had some visitors.  In the second picture the deer is walking straight through the garden....guess she was wondering where those delicious tomatoes were she ate throughout the summer!
