Whenever my daughter has company, she asks me to make my chocolate cobbler recipe for them. For her last birthday party, I had homemade cupcakes for the kids and chocolate cobbler for the adults… I ended up having to make three chocolate cobblers because that is what all of the kids wanted, too! 

But it is a deliciously decadent chocolate dessert, featuring a moist chocolate cake with a hot chocolate fudge sauce layer. It’s like a chocolate lava cake, only easier to make (music to my ears). Don’t forget the ice cream!

Slice of Chocolate Pound Cake with Fudge Glaze.
