Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Cherry Chocolate Cobbler

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Cherry Chocolate Cobbler

This is a seasonal favorite from the Cracker Barrel, but you can enjoy this rich chocolate goodness anytime.  Be sure to serve this with premium vanilla bean ice cream.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter

1 (6 ounce) package nestle semisweet chocolate morsels

1/4 cup milk

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling

1/2 cup finely chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter.  Cut with a pastry blender until the crumbs are the size of small peas.  Over hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate morsels.  Allow to cool 5 minutes at room temperature.
Add milk and egg to the chocolate mixture; mix well.  Blend into flour mixture; mix well.  Spread pie filling in the bottom of a 2 quart casserole.
Drop chocolate batter randomly over cherries.  Sprinkle nuts all over top.  Bake 40-45 minutes.
