CHOCOLATE GRAVY ...PERFECT FOR YOUR BUTTERMILK BISCUIT!


Hey Darlin'!
Now listen....this is going to be all about 
THE BISCUIT today!
Oh yes.....and the GRAVY.....
CHOCOLATE GRAVY no less!
This is a southern delight through and through 
and
I am going to bet, you probably never have tried this.....
but I ask you,
would you turn this down?


This recipe comes from our favorite gal,
Miss Paula Deen!
I'm with Paula.....nothing goes together better
than biscuits and gravy....
Perhaps a side order of bacon is called for.......


CHOCOLATE GRAVY
1/3 stick butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 T. flour
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups milk

Heat butter in a saucepan over low heat.
 Mix in sugar, flour and cocoa. 
Slowly pour 1 cup of milk into the saucepan and whisk well to remove lumps. 
Whisk in remaining milk, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick. 
Serve hot over biscuits.
This is divine decadence!

Postscript~ Estelle's recommends homemade biscuits

  1. LOL- Love it- I posted this recipe a few years ago and it has the most hits of anything I have ever had on my blog. You make it just like I do. Most people have never heard of it (unless you are Suthern')...my grandkids love it and I do it for a treat for them every once in a while. I must say your pictures are LOTS better than mine!
    Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend---what time should I swing by for my biscuit and 'gravy'? xo Diana

  2. This may be only the third blog post I have ever seen about chocolate gravy. The last time, I remember mentioning it to John and he turned up his nose, which was a rare thing for him to do. Now I'll just have to turn it into an adventure for sometime when I have company. I can't be alone in the house with a batch of biscuits and gravy because, no, I could not turn it down. 😳

  4. Betsy, I have eaten this in my youth. I always wanted to stay at my Aunt Helen's and Uncle Luke's , because Aunt Helen made the very best chocolate gravy and biscuits. She made plenty of it too. Thanks for the memory. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Thank you for another great recipe! I think this would be perfect for Monday's Quad Day! I'll have it all ready when they arrive. Amber will enjoy bringing them early so she won't have to prepare breakfast! Monday is the one day I can do all three meals for the kids and she can get a day off!
