Dutch-Oven Chocolate Cherry Cobbler

Dutch-Oven Chocolate Cherry Cobbler

Have you ever cooked in a Dutch-Oven? I remember as a girl going to camp every summer and we would cook some kind of fruit cobbler, fried chicken and biscuits in a Dutch-Oven. This recipe for Dutch-Oven Cobbler I found a long time ago in a old cookbook from a church. You know those recipes have been handed down from grandparents and aunts and uncles and are so delicious!
Growing up one of my best friends was a pro at Dutch-Oven Cooking. She had taken a few classes and her food was so amazing. Don't be afraid to try this, you will not believe how easy this recipe is to make in a Dutch Oven!
Next time you go camping bring these ingredients along and give your family a special treat. It needs just a few ingredients and the taste is mouth-watering
Cleanup is a breeze with these casserole liners I found over at Amazon.
If you have a fire pit in your back yard everyone will love this Chocolate Cherry Cobbler for a Summer Barbecue. Make sure you top it with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. 🙂
