Nutella Chocolate Cobbler

This recipe is perfect for Valentine's Day!  That is, if you love chocolate and are as OBSESSED with Nutella as I am.  I made this for dessert last week, and we really enjoyed it.  It's SO easy to make and if you carry Nutella in your pantry, then you probably also have everything else needed in your pantry to make this today.  Give it a try!  I honestly couldn't tell by taste that it was Nutella, but it DID taste and have the texture of a hot, chocolate lava cake.  UGH! So good, so rich!

Nutella Chocolate Cobbler

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
1 cup sugar, divided
½ cup milk
1/2 cup Nutella
6 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1-½ cup hot tap water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, and 1/2 cup of white sugar.  Stir in milk, Nutella, butter, and vanilla.  Mixture will be thick like the texture of peanut butter.  Spread mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking dish.  In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and remaining cocoa (3 tablespoons).  Sprinkle mixture evenly over the batter.  Pour the hot water over  everything and do not stir.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the center is slightly firm but not fluid like liquid.

Spoon mixture into small bowls and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
