Gravy, gravy, gravy!
Here in the South, Chocolate Gravy is served at breakfast over “cat-head” biscuits, as my dear Dad calls them. My own daughters used to gag at the idea of gravy being sweet, until they grew up a little and learned just how delicious chocolage gravy poured over a warm biscuit and topped with a pat of butter can be.
It’s not something I make on a regular basis, but for a special breakfast treat.
Speaking of Dad, his specialty was always Tomato Gravy, a savory gravy made with bacon drippings and flour, with chopped fresh tomato pieces added. Yum, yum! I must make some soon.
My friend Jada shares her family’s secret recipe for Chocolate Gravy.
2 cups sugar
3 TBS cocoa
3 heaping TBS flour
add 3-4cups HOT water
Mix sugar, flour, and cocoa with whisk first, then add your water. Mix well. Cook on med heat until it boils. Remove from heat and place in a pretty gravy bowl. Allow to cool slightly before serving over warm biscuits.
Jada’s notes: Add more water if it gets too thick. Some like it thick, some don’t. I let mine sit and cool about 5 min before serving so its not like lava–lol–ENJOY! I’ve just let y’all in on a BIG family recipe :)
