Slow Cooker Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cobbler

Spring just can’t come soon enough around here.  We are so over the multiple layering of clothes and the never ending grey skies…….

Yet Springtime isn’t such a distant memory that I can’t conjure up visions of birds, sunshine and farm fresh produce.  All of which come with the warmth of Spring …

This brings the focus of my little life story to a neglected quart of fresh strawberries sitting on my counter.

No one ate them.

I can’t help but think this container of strawberries wouldnt’ve (I know that’s not a real word) stood a chance of surviving if they were just fresh picked from the local berry patch.

My very first real paying job way back in the 80’s was at a strawberry farm a few miles down the road. I was in the 5th grade and was compensated a whopping 25 cents for every pint I picked!  Boy, that sure doesn’t sound like very much money.  A quarter doesn’t get you more than a glance these days…..anyway….back to my story.

 

I needed to find something to do with the berries before they turned to yuck.  And since I already had a batch of chili in my larger slow cooker, I felt compelled to finish out the meal with a crock pot dessert.

My inspiration for this chocolate covered strawberry cobbler came from a recipe I saw a while back for chocolate biscuits.  I thought “why can’t I scatter the dough over the strawberries?”  And it worked.  Amazingly well, might I add.

The sugar-coated strawberries made a syrup and the biscuits adsorbed it quite nicely.  Top this cobbler off with a helping (or two) of vanilla ice cream and you’re Gold!
