**Full, printable recipe card below – just scroll on down within this post to find it!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine 3 Tbs. cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Add the milk, melted butter and vanilla to the dry ingredients; gently stir to combine.
Gently fold the chocolate chips into the batter until incorporated.
Spread the batter into a greased 9×9-inch pan (I actually used a 10×8-inch pan in these pics); sprinkle the walnuts (or pecans) over the top of the batter.
In a small mixing bowl, prepare the topping ingredients by combining the remaining 1 Tbs. cocoa powder, sugar, brown sugar, and kosher salt.
Evenly spread the prepared topping over the walnuts and brownie cobbler batter.
Pour the boiling water over the top; DO NOT STIR!! (This is what makes the magic happen in this recipe!)
Bake the brownie cobbler for 25-30 minutes or until the top of the cobbler is just set.
Serve the brownie cobbler while still warm, topped with your favorite vanilla ice cream.
Answers to Common Questions Asked About This Recipe
Can I make this a dark chocolate dessert?
Yep – just substitute dark chocolate cocoa powder. Pecans with the dark chocolate are especially good, too.
Why don’t I stir this recipe after I add the boiling water?
This is the magic step! Not stirring allows the brownie part of the cobbler to rise to the top and the pudding part to stay at the bottom as the dessert bakes.
How do I know when the brownie cobbler is done?
After the cobbler has been in the oven for about 25 minutes, it’s time to check it. If the cobbler looks like baked brownies on the top but still has batter at the top of the very center, bake it a little longer. Once the cobbler looks like baked brownies all across the top, it’s time to remove it from the oven.
The cobbler will have a saucy pudding on the bottom that thickens as it cools a bit. If you prefer a thicker pudding that’s not so saucy, bake the cobbler a bit more next time.
Is brownie cobbler like chocolate lava cake?
Definitely similar, but to me, brownie cobbler is much easier, quicker to make, and just a yummy.
