Cherry Chocolate Cobbler- Copycat Recipe

Kathie Carr


I got this recipe from a friend who used to work at a Cracker Barrel Restaurant. Although it is not their recipe she felt is was almost like the cobbler Cracker Barrel makes and it is very good. The topping is more like a chocolate biscuit than a cake. You can even use a larger casserole dish and double the amount of cherries to make it more fruity.

My family and I love it. And I often make it for potluck suppers at church. Its rich and just plain yummy.
