If you haven't already linked up to our party be sure to click here.  We love seeing all your awesome ideas.

I love the cooler weather of fall. All summer I wanted to use my fire pit, but it was too hot! Now though, the temps are dipping down at night…and it’s perfect cobbler weather. If you have a dutch oven, it’s fun to cook cobblers over the coals. It gives you that camping out feeling, even though you’re not. But if you don’t have one, you can still make these easy cobblers in your oven at home in a 9x13 pan (and they still taste like a little bit of heaven). My family has tried lots of cobblers over the years, and these are our favorites because they’re just so darn easy. Hope you enjoy.

2 cans Cherry Pie Filling
1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
1 Can Cream Soda
2 Hershey’s Chocolate Bars

(These directions will work for all these cobblers)
Pour Pie filling into dutch oven or 9x13. Sprinkle dry cake mix over top. Drizzle Cream soda over that, then break up chocolate bars into little pieces and spread around top. Bake until top gets crispy and you think its done. If you don’t know, take a spoonful and figure out if you like the consistency. It usually will take 30-60 minutes depending on coals, outside temp, wind, heat in your oven (350) and how much moisture the cake mix has to soak up. Sorry I’m not more precise, but we kind of play cobblers by feel and touch each time. I’ve never written it down, but think you’re safe to start at 40 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven and then check to see how it’s coming along.

2 large cans Peaches (drained)
1 White Cake Mix
1 Can Sprite or 7-Up
Brown Sugar

1 can Blueberries
1 can Raspberries (or other berries)
White cake mix
1 can Sprite
Brown Sugar

Someday I'm going to experiment and try to do a Hawaiian cobbler and see if it turns out using this method. (Pineapple, maraschino cherries, yellow cake mix, sprite, brown sugar and coconut).  The world's your limit on these.  One time we did the peach cobbler, but only had a red cream soda to pour on top.  It tasted great, but looked quite funky.  Anyone else have any great ideas for cobblers?

We have always lined our dutch ovens with tin foil. What did you line yours with?

Charissa said...

They are dutch oven parchment paper liners and are way easier than foil; they're sold at Walmart and about everywhere now and are totally worth the money (saves you a lot of cleaning).
