This is a very old-fashioned recipe!
How about a chocolate gravy over hot buttery rolls?
I know......divine isn't it?

1 1/2 cups of Pioneer Baking Mix
1/2 cup of milk
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 T. cocoa powder
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 T. butter, melted
Boiling water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix Pioneer Baking Mix and milk in a bowl until it forms a dough. Roll out onto a floured surface and knead 3-4 times. Next, roll out dough into a large rectangle. In a separate bowl, mix sugar and cocoa powder with enough butter to form a paste. Smear chocolate paste mixture onto the rolled out dough.Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Roll dough like you would a Jelly Roll and cut into 1 inch pieces. 

In a greased pie plate, or baking dish, place chocolate rolls. Cover rolls, nearly to the top edge, with boiling water. Bake for 20-30 minutes. 


  1. Okay- First I am assuming I can use Bisquick....BUT---are you saying to pour boiling water right INTO the pan of rolls OR do you mean to sink the dish into a water full of hot water? I know---dumb blond here. I am thinking of making these this weekend! xo Diana

    1. LOL...of course you can use Bisquick Diana! Yes, once you arrange the rolls in a baking pan, pour the hot water directly over the dough. This is what forms a gravy. Once they are finished baking, you can either invert the biscuits onto a serving platter, (making sure it's got a dip rim) or just serve them from the pan.


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
