Enjoy this Easy Brownie Cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and feel your belly smile.
Okay, so the first time I saw or even heard of there being such thing as Chocolate Cobbler or Brownie Cobbler, I made a look of disgust. Not that I don’t like chocolate or anything, but because the idea of someone making a bowl of chocolate seemed a bit…lazy. I mean I am used to cobblers having fruit and a buttery crust. Not to be a big goop of chocolate with crust on top. It kind of came across as one of those dishes where it was so unhealthy looking that it was actually ridiculous to think of this being created. Do you know what I mean? Think of food like Double Burger with bacon, pancetta, three types of cheese, macaroni and cheese, and a fried egg or a Fried Oreo Chocolate Brownie Sundae. Now, do you see what I mean? Food that sounds good in theory, but the idea of consumption is absolutely ridiculous! That is how I thought of Chocolate and Brownie Cobbler. That was until I decided to make the incredibly delicious dessert and give it a try for myself.
As much as I love this Easy Brownie Cobbler recipe, I have come to a stunning and unfortunate revelation about getting older. As much as I love dessert, I have noticed a shift in how my body takes on sugar. It’s almost like as we get older our bodies force us to make changes just so we can function. I am officially in my mid-thirties this year and it was until after my birthday did I notice how my body is always sore. Like seriously, even if I don’t work out, I am sore for NO REASON. I am hearing my bones crack a bit more and it takes me a little bit longer to bend down. That is just the bones and muscles of my body, let’s talk about how I am feeling the difference in my body when I eat junk. Ugh, in my mind I can still eat like the undergraduate college student I once was, not that long ago mind you. But my body knows better. I notice, almost immediately, when I eat something refined carb heavy or with a bunch of table sugar, I almost immediately feel sluggish and fat. As delicious and comforting this Brownie Cobbler recipe is and how much I could eat a bowl of this chocolate bowl of heaven, my body won’t let me. That doesn’t mean it has to slow you down though.
Here is how my Brownie Cobbler recipe is a bit different from most. Once I baked the Brownie Cobbler, I poured a bit of hot fudge over the whole damn thing and went for it. The first time I made this Brownie Cobbler, there was still some liquid in the middle of the dish, but I mixed it into the baked cobbler and that water got absorbed into the rest of the baked cobbler and before I knew it there wasn’t a lot of pudding left. So, I had a jar of hot fudge sauce and poured it over and it-was-in-sane. This baked Brownie Cobbler was super soft and moist and that hot fudge sauce just gives the cobbler added moisture and chocolatey-goodness! I mean, this Easy Brownie Cobbler is the dish that has made me the happiest person on the face of the planet.
- 1lb. Brownie Mix (including required ingredients)
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1½ c. hot water
- 1 c. hot fudge sauce
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- toffie bits (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the brownie mix and the required measurements according to the box instructions. Be sure the batter is smooth.
- Pour the melted butter
in an 8X11 casserole dish. Pour the brownie batter on top of the butter and pour the hot water on top of the brownie batter. Bake for 40 minutes in the oven on the middle rack. Once finished, you will still have some liquid on top of the brownie but you should see the top of the brownie baked through. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 2 minutes.
- Use a spoon to mix the liquid into the brownie and it will become gooey (what you want). Pour the warm fudge sauce on top of the brownie and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with a dollop of ice cream, top off with toffee bitts, and serve.
