If you are a chocoholic,

It’s desperately chocolatey, studded with cookies and cream heaven. Topped with vanilla ice cream, melting into the gooey chocolate skillet.

Served warm! 

Hi, I can’t handle it.

I am a serious chocolate lover and this is my idea of perfection.

Oh my. It’s also a huge throwback recipe!! Remember when I shared this chocolate cobbler? It was 12 years ago. YES. 12!

I can’t even believe it. I remember taking the original photos of that recipe like it was yesterday. Can’t believe it’s been so long.

Chocolate cobbler was a new thing to me back then and oh boy, is it delicious.

It’s basically a gooey chocolate cake skillet. Sort of like a gooey brownie skillet. In this case, I added crushed up oreos! I mean, as if we needed to make it better…

We love oreos in this house, but more specifically – we love anything cookies and cream. It’s Eddie’s favorite ice cream flavor. The kids love oreos for dessert. These oreo bars are dreamy and a big request around here. 

Basically, we can’t get enough.

So it makes sense to crush them up and drop them into a gooey chocolatey skillet of love. I want everyone to make this because it’s AMAZING.

Here’s the deal. The thing about the chocolate cobbler is that it needs to be served with ice cream. Should definitely be served hot, with ice cream!

The bottom of the chocolate skillet is gooey, fudge-like, and almost like brownie batter. The top is cake-like and fluffy and rich. So when you add ice cream?

The ice cream melts into the fudge batter like a vanilla river and it’s dessert utopia. Really it doesn’t get better than this.

When you make this chocolate cobbler, you may be surprised by the method. A batter goes into the skillet, then you sprinkle cocoa and sugar on top. THEN you pour hot coffee on top. I promise this does not taste like coffee. If you’re super anti-coffee, then you can just use hot water. No biggie!

It seems like an odd way to make the cobbler but once it comes out of the oven, it just works. You don’t want to overbake this because you want that gooey brownie batter-like texture on the bottom. That’s the best part!

I can’t even explain how much we love this. It’s like my gooey chocolate chip cookie skillet, but a brownie/cake mashup. Don’t sleep on this one!
