chocolate gobbler cobbler

Soooo...I got the dreaded call last week..."our school is having a bake sale. Can you...". At this time of year I really dread this call. Is that bad? I'm not complaining...I's just another thing to add to the plate. Sigh...

Embracing this "challenge" I began browsing around on the web for ideas for the upcoming school bake sale, and I came across Lollychops and her intriguing sounding dessert: Chocolate Gobbler Cobbler. I was specifcally looking for something that sounded irresistibly delicious and was also simple to make. I really lucked out with this's a WINNER in my books!

I figure if you're buying at a bake sale, you may not bake so much yourself, so to be able to "chef up" something delicious, on demand, simply, sounded good. This recipe scored on both fronts. I followed Lolly's instructions and created these three part recipe packs, all wrapped up in the beautiful provided-printable-packaging and...voila!

Did you snaffoo one of these at the bake sale? 
What deliciousness did you make?

PS: for those who didn't and are curious here is the full recipie
I warn you, the instructions are weird...but very specific...

Trust me it works...OMG it really works...soooo good!!!!!!

Still missing the bits that you make up ready to give and then what they do? This is a great idea for 'nervous' bakers though love it. Rach
