Chocolate Apple Pecan Cobbler

We are chocolate people over here.  We love chocolate…we also love apples too, so I thought I’d make us a little fall cobbler that combined two of our favorite things.  Not only is this little recipe so simple, it’s delicious too.  Listen, if you’re not a pecan person, just leave them out…I will never know ;).
Shopping List
1 box of chocolate cake mix, divided
1 tablespoon cinnamon, divided
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup butter, cold and chopped into pieces
1/2 cup pecans (optional)
1 cup caramel pieces (sold on the chocolate chip aisle)
2 (21 oz) cans apple pie filling
Vanilla Ice Cream, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 baking dish.  Set aside.
Mix 2 cups of your chocolate cake mix, half a tablespoon of cinnamon and water until smooth.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl, combine the remaining half tablespoon of cinnamon and the rest of your cake mix.  Add in your butter and combine with a fork until crumbly.  Stir in pecans and caramel pieces. 
Spoon the apple pie filling into prepared baking dish.  Drizzle the smooth chocolate cake batter on top of pie filling.  Sprinkle your pecan mixture down on top of everything. 
Bake for about 30 minutes or until bubbly around the edges.  Serve with ice cream.
I mean, so simple and so delicious too!  The cake mix sprinkled on top makes a cobbler like texture for your dessert.  Yummy!  The caramel pieces are found in a package just like chocolate chips on the chocolate chip aisle.  If you can’t find them, you could substitute chocolate or butterscotch pieces.
If you love chocolate and you love apples, you will love this dessert.  Hello fall.
If you liked this recipe, you will love these too…
