We are down to the wire here. Four day until Christmas. . . hOlY cOw! I still haven’t figured out what I’m getting my husband. Any suggestions?
If you need a simple, quick and completely delicious dessert for the holidays, this chocolate cobbler is for you. Love, love, love this stuff. Serve it warm with some vanilla ice cream and you’ll be in chocolate heaven. While it bakes, it magically makes its own chocolate sauce which is so yummy. You could also serve it with a dusting of powdered sugar, but I highly recommend the ice cream.
I hope you are all ready for the big day. If not, you’d better hurry up.
