Chocolate Gravy

Cathy Smith


Growing up, we would go spend a week or two at a time with my Mamaw and Papaw. We ate big country breakfasts every morning, there were several things we kids loved to do; 1. Listen to Mamaw tell outlandish family stories that we called whoppers 2. Go swimming at Ol' Blue Hole that was supposed to be bottomless and 3. get Mamaw to make chocolate gravy. I still make it and everyone I tell I am making it says ewwwww till they taste it and then they beg me for it everytime they are here.

How to Make Chocolate Gravy


  • 1Mix flour, sugar and cocoa and add in that pinch of salt. Stir this together well to prevent any lumps later on. Now dump all that in a skillet, and add the milk. Stir it up, then turn on the heat to medium. You kind of need to stir this continuously. Continue to cook till it comes to the bubble. Then turn off the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. Serve over buttered biscuits. If a little thick can thin by adding a bit more milk by tablespoon full.
  • 2Notes:
    This stuff can be reheated and its just as good as the first time. My mama did not have a microwave so she put it in a pan and added a couple of spoonfuls of milk and reheated over low heat till it was done. Today I use a microwave but I still put the milk in cause mama did and we tend to follow patterns. I like to save my biscuits, then the next morning, cut them open, butter them and then toast them in the broiler and then slap a bit of chocolate gravy over them. Oh it just makes me feel all warm and tingly and like a little girl again!!
