Monday - cherry chocolate cobbler

I am running late on reading posts and answering emails - but I WILL get to them - I've had a busy weekend.


We went to see Chipwrecked and it was sooooooooooooooooo cute!
Cherry Chocolate Cobbler
This is THE easier thing I've ever made.

And it was soooooooooooooo good.

RECIPE:

1
can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
1/2
cup Original Bisquick® mix
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup quick-cooking oats
1/4
cup firm butter or margarine
1/2
cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 350ºF. In ungreased 8-inch square pan, spread pie filling.
  2. In medium bowl, mix Bisquick mix, brown sugar and oats. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until crumbly. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon evenly over pie filling.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until very bubbly around edges. Serve warm.
From Betty Crocker

This is great, you'll love it!! Merry Christmas!!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

“Patience is a kind of love. A love that is its own explanation in bewildered circumstance. It is an old, old woman placing a wrinkled-parchment hand against the cheek of a reckless child. Because her heart is too wise to make room for reproach. Too full to find place for offense. ”

Sounds pretty yummy to me! I am big on cherries...and this one looks delicious. I love the first little cartoon picture...that would so be me..working hard to string popcorn and one of the grandkid eating it as fast as I could put it on..

ArtyMarti said...

I loved listening to the childrens version of the Christmas story. So cute. Your cobbler looks good.

Flora said...

Debbie said...

I didn't even know that the Chipmunks had a movie out. Oh dear... I'm going to be singing "And I want a hoooooola Hooooop" in my head all day now. ACK.

For some reason, that comic made me think of my cousin Erin and her son Dylan. I haven't spent nearly enough time with the two of them, but it just seems like something Dylan would be doing!

TexWisGirl said...

loved that top cartoon. too funny!

i'm staying far away from the cobbler, but it does sound like a recipe even i could do. :)

BECKY said...

Loved everything you chose to post here, Sandie! I understand about being busy....no time for dilly-dallying!

Melanie said...

What a sweet little video. :)
Hope you enjoyed your cobbler.
Merry Christmas!♥

DeanO said...

Sandie - I adore your cartoons. Funny - but we were talking about cherry pie at work just yesterday...we were laughing about store bought pie crust. You's looks awesome

A Quiet Corner said...

HmmmI think I might have to bring this with us on Christmas Eve!...:)JP

Jill said...

I want to see Chipwrecked. I just love those chipmunks!

WOW! The cobbler looks outstanding!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I love the video clip. Adorable children.

I am making your recipe next week for my family and serving it with vanilla ice cream. Hope Santa brings me a diet book:-). Your cartoons always make me smile!

SweetMarie said...

Looks delicious!

Ann said...

oh that cobbler looks delicious. That video is precious. I just got it in my email today and I forwarded it to you. I should have looked at your blog first...lol

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, Having kids around keeps one young. I had not heard of that movie!!!! ha

My hubby will NOT eat cherries (one of the few foods he doesn't like) so I would make that delicious cobbler with apples or maybe peaches... YUM...

Glad you shared that video.. I thought it was awesome.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sharon said...

Cherries and chocolate are my favorites! Can't wait to try this,
Sandie.

Angela said...

Oooo! That looks very yummy! I'll have to give it a try when I get the time. I can't wait to see the new Chipmunk movie too!

Merry Christmas!
Angela

Susan said...

Oh boy, Sandie. That look yummalicious. Susan

Belle said...

Wonderful video. I didn't know the Three Amigos went to see Jesus! So cute. Love the popcorn cartoon.

Knitty said...

I will be trying that cobbler soon!

That clip of the kids was just precious. My friends and I were just complaining about all the sad Christmas music. I don't mean to police other people's taste in music, but every time I turn the radio on this year, they seem to be playing tear jerker music.

I'm not an iPod gal so I will have to load up my Christmas CDs and avoid the stuff I don't like. Those kids were just what I needed to see and hear tonight. :)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

oh it looks so nummy!
love

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Sush said...

Oh Man...if you keep putting these fantastic looking recipes up I'm never going to be able to keep my New Year's resolutions...sigh...
But thanks for the excuse, lol!

Janie said...

I like how you tell us you had a busy week. Of course people understand. Then to see your cobbler. My diet is ruined for this year just thinking about any cobbler! Take care and breath...

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the Christmas activities going on and the Little Men visiting! LOL! I am going to give that Cherry and Chocolate recipe a try! Thank you, Sandie! blessings ~ Tanna

Stella said...

DaCraftyLady said...

DaCraftyLady said...

oh yeah I am going to try that cobbler it looks so sinfully good!!!

Sharon said...

Alvin - always been an Alvin fan.

That cobbler looks delicious - and it looks simple enough for even a baking-challenged fool like me to make!

Interesting thought, Sandie - really deep. Gotta ponder it a bit more...
