Chocolate Gravy

I've had a few of you ask about my Chocolate Gravy...and although a Food Blog this will NEVER be (love food...can't cook food)...I simply couldn't resist passing on something as sacred in our family as Chocolate Gravy is. My grandma Margaret (moms mom) would make this for me on a whim...didn't matter what time of day or what she was doing...if I wanted it, she delivered. I know that she did this just for me because she herself, nor my grandpa, even cared for it. They would eat it if it was cooked, but it was nothing she made just for the two of them...which in turn always made me feel extremely loved. When I had flown home here to TN from PA to attend her funeral, I stayed at my Aunt Rita's house (moms sister). She cooked Chocolate Gravy one morning for me...I bet it had been 10 years since I had eaten it (grandma couldn't cook for years due to Alzheimers) and boy did I ever feel 8 years old again! I got the recipe from her that day and it is now what I use to make it for my kids. My kids beg for it...especially in the cooler months...I love when I mention making it and their eyes (even my 13 year olds) light up like it's Christmas morning! Sometimes I even make it for dinner...yep, dinner of Champions! G'ma always made homeade biscuits of course but my kids are just as happy with the refrigerator Grands. Also we love the Pillsbury Frozen Southern Style Grands....they are almost just like eating my G'mas...and a heckofa lot easier to make than the way she did it from scratch! :-)

If you have never made this...I say it's something everyone should try at least once in their lives...kinda like seeing New York City. Who may just become a tradition around your house like it is at ours.

Warning: This recipe isn't gonna find it's way into a Weight Watchers cookbook anytime soon! :-)

Grandma Margaret/Aunt Rita's Chocolate Gravy
  • 1 &1/2 Cups Sugar (yes you read that right!)
  • 1 &1/2 Cups Water or Milk...(I use Milk)
  • 3 Tbsp. Cocoa
  • 4-7 Tbsp. Self Rising Flour..depending on how think you like it...You could use a little less or took a few times for me to know how I best liked it.
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter

Mix all ingredients EXCEPT vanilla and butter...cook until desired thickness.

Remove from heat and add Vanilla and Butter...serve over biscuits!

"And whatever I do, may it always bring glory to you"
