Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cobbler

This cobbler came about because I love chocolate-covered strawberries. Top it with whipped cream, either plain or with a little chocolate syrup stirred in. —Andrea Bolden, Unionville, Tennessee

    This was a disaster! Totally disappointing and a waste of fruit. Sounded delicious. I wish I knew what went wrong. Reading other reviews (after making) - how did it work fine for some and not others? I had a soupy mess. Doubted the 2 cups of water but my mother assured me cobblers work that way. Did others stir batter and butter together? So disappointed. My strawberries were $12!

    I saw this and it looked so easy and unusual that I decided to try it - and it was delicious! Silly thing was that I wasn't sure whether to actually combine the "batter" with the butter or just put it on top? Also, it seemed like a LOT of butter, wondering if that could be decreased somewhat. In any case, it turned out great and we really enjoyed it. I'd like to know about step 2 though , since I know I'll make this again sometime. I think it would be great with bananas and chocolate? Thanks!

    The picture above looks like there is a paper towel in the pan.

    Don’t make this unless you want to eat liquidity chocolate-sugar-butter liquid with butter on top

    I was skeptical of pouring 2 cups of boiling water on the recipe before baking but thought I should follow the directions. Well, as expected, the recipe came out soupy and unable to be eaten. Had to throw it out. I think I’m going to retry with half the water because the batter was good, the water just ruined it.

    I always have an abundance of strawberries during the summertime, so I'm constantly on the lookout for new recipes that I can make with them. This was a great recipe, easy to make and turned out perfectly. I will definitely be making this one again!
