  • Sprinkle the topping mixture over the batter; do NOT stir.
  • Pour the boiling water on top; again, do NOT stir.

*If you've made my Chocolate Cobbler, please know that this will be a slightly different texture due to the fact that it's cooked in the microwave.  Portions of the cake will rise to the top, but some fudge will set on top.  (I actually really liked the extra fudgy texture of the microwave version!!)
