Old Fashioned Chocolate Cobbler

This is a very old family recipe.  If you have never had chocolate cobbler, you are in for a rich treat.  For this recipe, you will make up the cake batter.  For the Chocolate sauce that forms under the crust, you do not mix after pouring on the water and adding the butter.
