This was not quite what I expected. I thought it was more like a brownie than a cobbler. It was good. After 50 minutes, the top felt crusty but the midle turned out to still be gooey. I couln't fit more than 1c water to the dish in step 7. Do be careful to not use more than 1/2tsp almond extract as it is overpowering if you do. ;) I love that it wasn't too sweet. I love the directions for making it 'darker' chocolate! This was easy to assemble. Mae for PAC Fall '07.
