There are many variations to this recipe. I created this one because I usually have a can of sweetened condensed milk on hand for sweet tooth emergencies. This is great for an afterschool or late night snack too!!! :0)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you've never had chocolate gravy, you must try this Southern treat. This is an extremely easy chocolate gravy recipe that turns out perfect. Mixing the flour and cocoa into the condensed milk before turning on the heat, makes it easier to get a smooth consistency. It turns out chocolaty and sweet and is amazing poured over hot buttered biscuits. Enjoy this for dessert or an indulgent breakfast.
