How to Tell if Cherry Chocolate Cobbler is Done

You can tell if the cobbler is done when the top is set and firm when you give it a gentle shake. The bottom will still be a bit loose since it’s full of cherry filling.

Recipe Notes

  • Almonds go really well with cherries but you can use any type of nuts you want.
  • If you prefer dark chocolate, you can use extra-dark or dark semi-sweet morsels (70% cacao) if you don’t want to the semi-sweet morsels.
  • This dessert is best served with vanilla ice cream but you can also add whipped cream or pour cream on top.

How to Store Cherry Chocolate Cobbler

The best way to store it is to eat it!

Honestly, if you store it with a lid in the refrigerator, it will last about a week tops before the cherry filling starts to make the cobbler topping soggy. It definitely doesn’t freeze very well.

It tastes the best fresh out of the oven, so eat it up!

When Does Cracker Barrel have chocolate cobbler?

This is definitely a seasonal pie. Always ask your local Cracker Barrel store if they have it made before you go, especially if you are really looking forward to it.

The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to wait for it to be in stock. You can make this anytime that you are craving cherries and chocolate together in a scrumptious pie.

    Do you drop the chocolate mixture on top of the cherries, or do you drop the cherries on top of the chocolate mixture?

    here’s a super easy way to make this – take an angel food cake or non frosted yellow or white cake you can back yourself, and tear apart – layer the cake pieces, chocolate cherries and nuts – and don;t use finely chopped nuts. go with regular chopped or halves of pecans. then pour a mixture of cream, vanilla and 4 eggs over it and bake. you can even microwave this for 15 minutes. then nuke again for another 10-15 minutes
