Slow Cooker Chocolate Cobbler
This lovely chocolate cobbler that is cooked in the slow cooker comes from reader Carolyn Whetstone and let me tell you, it tastes FANTASTIC!
This cobbler is different than a typical fruit cobbler because instead of fruit you have warm gooey melted chocolate.
I love this dessert topped with whipped cream and some chocolate syrup. Vanilla ice cream works too.
Or just eat it plain straight from the slow cooker!
Oh my, YUM!

Frequently Asked Questions
Self rising flour is a simple combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. If you don’t have self-rising flour or don’t want to buy some just for this recipe you can easily make your own by combining the following to equal the 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour called for in this recipe:
– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 3 teaspoons baking powder (learn how to make sure your baking powder is fresh)
– 1 teaspoon salt
If you want to add a little bit of fruit to your chocolate cobbler you can add 1 cup of your preferred fruit. I love to add 1 cup of pitted and rough chopped cherries because I love the combination of chocolate and cherries.
The reason it is important not to stir the batter once you have spooned it into the slow cooker is because you want there to be little puddles of melted butter between the spoonful’s of batter. This is what will create that cobbler texture as well as the chocolate sauce that forms when cooked.
