Midnight Magic Cake AKA Chocolate Cobbler Recipe

I love chocolate and I saw this and new immediately I had to try this.  With this recipes, it’s frugal comfort food with easy preparation, so you are never more than 45 minutes to fudgy dark heaven. Even better, on whim it’s a week night desert that can bake while serving dinner. I would recommend this rich concoction of dark chocolate flavor be served with whipped cream, ice cream, or cool whip.  Plus, this recipe is flexible, which is always a bonus.  If you want to add an egg to the batter go ahead,m or if you do not like nuts, leave them out.  Mexican style with Saigon cinnamon added to the sauce mix layer. Serve it with powdered sugar dusted on top. However you decide to make it’s always easy, delicious, fun for the whole family. Can be doubled for use in a casserole dish. This will make you famous at a pot luck.

I saw this disclaimer and I had to leave it.
