I love pretty much anything with cherries in, and have always particularly loved the cherry/chocolate combination, so when I found this recipe I was thrilled! It is absolutely delicious to eat while warm, especially with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top….sooooo good!
CHOCOLATE CHERRY COBBLER
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
6 oz (3/4 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cups milk
21 oz can cherry pie filling
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a fork and knife or with a pastry blender. (I like to just mostly use the back of the fork and smash the butter in.)
In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. I usually start by microwaving them for about 30 seconds and then I stir them up. If they need more melting, I do 15-second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Add milk and egg to melted chocolate and mix well. Blend the chocolate into the flour mixture and stir until well combined. The batter will be very thick.
Spread the cherry pie filling into the bottom of a greased 2-quart dish (could use an 8X8 or 9X9 pan also). Drop the chocolate batter randomly over the cherries and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
