Betty's notes for this recipe:
My grandmother, Ethel McFarland gave me this recipe about 40 years ago. It is so easy and is made from items in most pantrys. Has that old fashion chocolate taste. Serve hot with ice cream.....yummy. My teenage grandaughter and her friends always request this.

Hello Betty, I'm from the Delta. Good to see another one from MS.

I love this cobbler but since I've become a diabetic, I try to be good and refrain from anything that is good. Try I said.
After each mixture that you put into baking dish you don't stir, or do you. When I was making them I didn't stir when adding my mixtures to the baking pan.

Ty, marilyn
