My grandmother used to make this every Sunday morning. If you have a sweet tooth in the morning, this is GREAT!

Thick and rich, Elwanda's grandmother's chocolate gravy is an old-fashioned and delicious recipe. If you have a sweet tooth and love something sweet in the morning, you'll love it. You could enjoy this for dessert too. The sweet chocolate gravy is a tasty contrast to the warm, savory biscuit. We used hot water when testing and it worked great.
