“I think this is my new favorite dessert.” and “I want this on my death bed.” If those two responses to this dessert don’t talk you into making it, I don’t know what will!! This recipe was created by my sister-in-law, Krista and I’m SOOOO thankful she let me share it with you all, especially knowing how much you all have been LOVING my Chocolate Cobbler!

Krista and I come from opposite ends of the state, but met in college at Iowa State in ’08 when we were both studying food science. We bonded over boozy drinks on Welch Ave, food science club and VEISHEA fudge….ahhhh the good ‘ol days!

Two weddings (she married my brother & I married one of my brother’s friends) and six kids later, our chatter is a little different. Nowadays, it’s diapers, DIY’s and dance classes….oh how times change! Luckily, we still love creating recipes in our free time, so when you get a chance to try this recipe, you can say thanks to Krista for this one! 🙂

How to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Cobbler

There’s two components of the cobbler: the cookie dough and the fudgy sauce underneath it. First, you’ll make the cookie dough and set it aside. Then, you’ll mix the sauce together right in the pan. The dough then gets scooped evenly over the sauce (it’s okay if some of it sinks).

The cobbler bakes for 35-45 minutes, or until the cookies are a golden brown on top and the cookies are no longer doughy in the middle. The cookies will rise to the top and the sauce will thicken into a yummy fudge sauce underneath. Serve immediately with ice cream for the BEST dessert everrrr!

What size pan should I use?

This recipe calls for a 9×9″ pan (I always use a glass square pan). A metal pan will work fine, but you’ll want to make sure it isn’t too shallow. However, if you don’t have a square pan, you could also use a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish.

  1. 5 stars
    Very quick and easy to make and ended up being delicious! The cookie was very gooey and soft with a little bit of crunch on the top, and the pudding-like bottom was also very gooey and delicious!

    1. 🙂 I’m so happy to hear!! Sometimes you just need a ooey, gooey chocolatey dessert, right?! Thanks for the review and rating – my small business appreciates that SO much! ~Kelsey

  2. can you make this ahead of time and then reheat when serving?

    1. Hi Rachel. I don’t recommend it as the bottom fudgy layer will thicken up too much! ~Kelsey

        Have made this delicious dessert several times! Definitely a favorite!

  3. Jessica Scully says:

    Can this be prepped ahead and baked right before dessert? This could be amazing for our Easter brunch!

    1. Hi Jessica! Here’s what I’d recommend…. make the two separate parts ahead of time. Mix up the cookie dough; mix up the chocolate pudding mixture. Then when you’re ready to bake it, pour the pudding mixture in the pan, top with boiling water, scoop the cookie dough on top and bake! Hope that helps. It’s sure to be a hit! 🙂
