I randomly found this recipe on Pinterest and the name intrigued me. I had only heard of fruit cobblers, which I love but never a chocolate one!
The recipe is so easy yet feels like a bit of a science experiment which I kinda love 🙂 Mike loved it so much he demanded so save the recipe so I thought I might as well save I here and share it with all of you 😉
