Chocolate Gravy

Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy

When I was little, we didn’t make chocolate gravy.  Mom and Grandma made white gravy, but never chocolate.  Only when I was older did I hear of such a strange food.  I turned my nose up at it.

Chocolate gravy? It sounded so weird.

But let me tell you, friend.  Chocolate gravy is a very, very good thing.  I’ve now crossed on over.

I believe in chocolate.

And I believe in chocolate gravy.

Especially chocolate gravy covering a hot biscuit on a fall morning (or any morning) surrounded by eight boys.


Around our kitchen, the boys like to dip their fruit in it, too.

And I hear that in some parts, people actually put the chocolate gravy on other foods including their scrambled eggs.

It’s just that good.

  1. Hmmm…I must admit that I turned my nose up too when I saw the title of this post! But you make it sound so good that I most definitely will be giving this a try! Thanks for the recipe 🙂


  2. “I believe in chocolate!” That is classic! I believe in chocolate too 🙂

    I’ve never heard of this, but will have to try it now.

  3. Oh!! I’m sooo glad I’m not crazy! I grew up eating this as a kid and now make it for my own kiddos. I use cook and serve chocolate pudding though, just cook and then serve over the biscuits or whatever else happens to be on your plate 🙂 I’ll have to try out this simple homemade recipe. Thank you for posting!

  4. Ooooh, thank you! I ate this at a friend’s house quite frequently as a kid, and I keep trying to tell my famil about it. Now I’ll make some and blow them all away!

    BTW, this same friend’s mom let us liberally butter our biscuits and top them with a layer of white sugar. Mmmmmmmm. You can see that I liked to visit them quite often.

  5. I grew up eating chocolate gravy as have my kids only it was made a little different. We used water instead of milk and mixed the cocoa,flour and sugar,then added the water and cooked it,stirring with a whisk,then added a little butter when it was done. My mother made it this way probably because she grew up during tough times.I imagine it also has fewer calories. But your recipe for it sounds delicious.

  6. Just tried this for breakfast this morning with my kids. My 2 year old boy ate without a noise (very unusual for him) and wouldn’t look up from his plate until it was gone! Everyone thought it was delicious! Thanks for sharing.
