Today marks ONE MONTH til Valentine’s Day! Are you ready? I’m excited! Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. It’s the reason Dessert For Two was invented. It’s the kind of stuff that people who love mini ramekins, petite whisks, and 1/8-teaspoon measures thrive on. It’s the best time of year to hold hands and share a dessert with two spoons. Get in the spirit!
I’m kicking off this month-long countdown to the most romantic day of the year with a chocolate cobbler. If you’ve never had chocolate cobbler, another way to describe it is a brownie that comes with its own chocolate sauce. As the top of the brownie bakes, a rich chocolate sauce forms underneath. See?:
It’s essentially brownie and chocolate pudding all rolled into one. You’re going to LOVE it. So is your sweetie.
Look, I have to say this: If you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone, don’t fret. Seriously. Life is short. You’re not going to be alone forever. Treat yourself and eat a chocolate dessert for two.
This recipe is a little strange. It has 3 steps. The first step is to spread the thick brownie-like batter on the bottom. Then, you top that with a cocoa powder & brown sugar crumble. Then, you pour hot water all over it. You don’t stir the water in, though. You put this dessert into the oven looking like a chocolate soupy mess. Trust me, my sweet chocolate-loving friends, it comes out gorgeous.
You’re going to make this recipe over and over again when you’re craving something chocolatey because the ingredients are all things you normally have on hand. Cocoa powder, sugar, milk and a little butter.
Let’s get in the spirit of love and chocolate together, shall we?
