Apple Cobbler with Crumbs

My guest love to have this apple cobbler serve with a scope of fudge brownie on the bottom, drizzle a layer of chocolate ganache, top it with the apple cobbler with crumbs, a scope of vanilla ice cream on top, and last but not least, drizzle some caramel with roughly chopped nuts. Bon Appetit!
