My husband grew up enjoying his Granny’s homemade chocolate gravy & biscuits when he would visit her house. He has talked about this tradition many times over the years, and I always thought I would try to make it sometime. I kept putting it off because I’m not an experienced gravy maker, and I thought it would be difficult. It’s not!
Granny is visiting with us right now, so I wanted to make this family favorite for her & Hubby to enjoy…and to introduce it to our daughter to pass on the tradition.
It turned out so YUMMY, and was simple to make. I admit, I was a little nervous in the middle of the cooking process because I thought it wouldn’t thicken up, but it all turned out perfect and just required a bit of patience.
Want the recipe? Ok, I’ll share! I didn’t take pictures of the process, but I’ll try to do that next time.
* 1/2 cup butter
* 4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 3/4 cup white sugar
* 2 cups milk
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add cocoa and flour, then stir until thick. Stir in sugar and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick. This will take several minutes, so be patient – it’s worth the wait!
This is best served immediately, but the cold leftovers are also very tasty!
I also made homemade biscuits to pour the gravy over, although it’s good enough to just eat with a spoon! If you want a good recipe for biscuits, here is a great one from the AllRecipes website.
