Two Great Family Favorite Chocolate Recipes

Southern chocolate cobbler:

Southern chocolate cobbler doesn't exactly sound like something edible. However, do try this recipe and you will be hooked. The following are ingredients needed to make the southern chocolate cobbler:

1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa, plus
1/4 cup baking cocoa, divided
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups hot water
Vanilla ice cream (optional)
These ingredients are enough for 6 to 8 servings. It takes a little bit of time to prepare, about 70 minutes but the end result will be worth it.

First, combine the flour, sugar and 2 tablespoons of cocoa. Add milk and oil and stir till smooth. Pour this combination onto a greased, 6 inch square baking pan. Mix the brown sugar and remaining cocoa and sprinkle liberally over the batter in the pan. Now pour hot water on top of the batter but don't stir it. Put in the oven and bake at 50 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until top of cake springs back when lightly touched.

Now after over an hour of baking, sit back, relax and enjoy the delicacy while still warm with ice cream on top. Yummy!

Chocolate oat cookies are a treat for the whole family. The recipe is so simple even your children can bake them in ten minutes!

To make them, you need the following ingredients:

* 3/4 lb. semisweet chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
* 3/4 cup all purpose flour
* 3/4 cup quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* 1/4 tsp. baking soda
* 1/4 tsp. salt (optional)

Chocolate oat cookies:

First, preheat the oven to 375°F. While waiting for the oven to heat up, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat. Beat butter and sugar in a bowl until fluffy while adding melted chocolate, egg and vanilla. Pour in the melted chocolate chips and stir well. Now place rounded tablespoonfuls of the mixture on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake them for 8 to 10 minutes. When it's done, leave to cool then place the cookies on to a wire rack.

If you wish to freeze the dessert, cool them quickly in the refrigerator to preserve the freshness. Then place them in freezer-proof containers or on sheets of aluminum foil. Make sure it is sealed properly by wrapping edges of the foil tightly. Place in the freezer. After awhile you may remove the baking sheet. Frozen cookies can be placed in the freezer for 2 months. If you wish to bake or reheat them, thaw completely before unwrapping.

The recipe for making chocolate oat cookies is kid safe. However, when using the oven and saucepan, parents' supervision is required.
