So to ask if you've discovered Pinterest.com would be a joke, right? Well, I can't say I'm completely obsessed, but I'm pretty close! I enjoy looking at all of the delicious sweet treats from cupcakes to tarts, they suck me in with their pretty photos and this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cobbler was no exception! These are two PERFECT ingredients that go together. I am a Reese's girl through and through, but I don't usually keep them in the house so this was the next best option for a mid-day craving.
I'll admit, I've never made a cobbler so I was a little intimidated. However, the recipe seemed easy and the directions a bit odd at the end, but I thought it came out great. I have reduced the amount of water in the end as mine came out a little runny underneath with the original amount. This is VERY rich and I recommend it warm and served a la mode and oh yes with some chocolate syrup on top!
