Quickly...make this! NOW!!

First, I cannot take credit for this recipe...most of you know that I follow Pioneer Woman...well, for those of you that don't know, she has another website, called Tasty Kitchen.  (If I knew how, Tasty Kitchen would have been highlighted there, and you could have just clicked on the words and it would have taken you to the link.  BUT...I don't know how...SO...won't be doing that little magic trick!)
Anyways, I came across this recipe by Susan Hawkins.  Don't know who Susan is...but want to give credit where credit is due!
These aren't my pictures either...they came from PW's site too...totally stole them!  They looked so much prettier than mine would have. 
So here it is, you HAVE to make this recipe!  We have been doing field work, and I needed a quick dessert to make for the guys after they had dinner.  Decided to make this, and Lordy Lordy!  Let me tell ya...if I could eat these pictures...I WOULD~! 
If your diabetic...sorry.  Might send your sweet little self into a tail spin...but, maybe just a bite will be ok. 
This is absolutely a MUST have recipe...and I will be keeping this one for any emergency that might arise!

Granny's Chocolate Cobbler

•1 cup All-purpose Flour

•2 teaspoons Baking Powder

•¼ teaspoons Salt

•7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided

•1-¼ cup Sugar, Divided

•½ cups Milk

•⅓ cups Melted Butter

•1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

•½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed

•1-½ cup Hot Tap Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.

Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.

Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking dish. I prefer my small oval Corning Ware glass dish.

In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining white sugar (it should be 1/2 cup), the brown sugar, and remaining 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.

Pour the hot tap water over all. DO NOT STIR!

Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center is set.

Let stand for a few minutes if you can hold yourself back. Serve with homemade ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.

OK...really...QUICKLY!  Go make this now!  Everyone will LOVE you FOREVER!!

YUMMY!!!! We made something very similar to this when we were young... called it Floating Island Pudding. It's soooo delicious!!! I will have to pull out my old handwritten recipe and compare it to yours and see if there are any differences.

ok, ok. I am going to do this!

It is easy to make a link. When you are posting, look at the little pictures above the text box. There should be one that looks like a frog or something. Click it. A box will come up to put in a URL address. Put the address in and enter. Then an HTML box will appear in your text box. Between the >< write the title of the blog: >Tasty Kitchen< and then when you post, it will be clickable!
