I always forget how busy summer is. It seems like when our normal routine/schedule goes out the door (aka- summertime) there are late nights, no structured meals…. do your kids snack as much as mine during the summer?! With all the activities it’s hard to even be home to make dinner.
Luckily, before we moved I made a few recipes so that I would have some deliciousness to share with you all. During the move I was kind of super stressed.
When I get stressed with life I usually end up in the kitchen baking. Hence the reason that there have been so many dessert posts lately 🙂
Dessert can’t get easier than this 3 ingredient black forest chocolate cobbler recipe. I am all about making homemade recipes from scratch (aka – without a cookie mix or canned pie filling) but sometime you just don’t want to be in the kitchen for hours slaving away while everyone else is out having fun.
Plus, I actually like canned pie filling. I think it tastes great and it’s so much easier than making your own.
If you’re not a fan of packaged cookie mixes or canned pie filling then you may just want to skip this recipe 🙂
One pan and 3 ingredients is all you need; a package of chocolate chunk cookie mix, a can of cherry pie filling, and some butter. That’s it.
This recipe is so versatile. Just think of all the options.
You could use apple pie filling with a snickerdoodle cookie mix. Or use a package of the chocolate chip cookie mix with some raspberry or cherry pie filling.
This black forest chocolate cobbler is quite rich so be sure and serve it with a scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream to help cut the sweetness.
That kind of sounds off, right? To cut the sweetness serve it with more sweetness (ice cream) haha 🙂
The vanilla ice cream really does cut the sweetness. Not sure how because ice cream is also sweet or maybe that just means this chocolate cobbler is very sweet.
Either way, make it cause it’s easy and delicious 🙂
My favorite part about this chocolate cobbler is the warm, cookie like topping that gets crackly on top while baking and then the sweet and warm cherry pie filling underneath that.
And don’t get me started on the cool ice cream on top! It melts into the cobber and is just amazing.
I hope you love this one. If you make a variation of it with different pie fillings and cookie mixes, then comment below and let me know! I would love to hear all the different flavor combinations this recipe has to offer.
Chocolate cobbler gets a fun black forest twist with canned cherry pie filling. You only need 4 ingredients to make this easy black forest chocolate cobbler dessert. Serve with some whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream for an easy & simple dessert recipe that everyone will love.
- 1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
- 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) double chocolate chunk cookie mix
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted
Heat ovent to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray.
Dump the pie filling into the baking dish and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the dry cookie mix over top and spread out evenly. Pour the melted over the top, making sure to get everything moistened with the melted butter.
Cook for 30 minutes or until cookie cobbler topping is cooked through. Or cook less time for a gooey cobbler. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I would highly suggest using slated butter in this recipe!
When you are drizzling the melted butter over the cookie mix, take care to moisten all the cookie mix with the butter. If you are worried about dry cookie mix at the end of the cook time, you can also combine the cookie mix + melted butter into a bowl and mix together, and then sprinkle that over top the pie filling. The texture is a bit different doing it this way but it's still the same "cobbler concept".
