Chocolate Gravy? Yes, Please!!

How many of my readers have ever heard of, or tried, chocolate gravy? It's more of a southern recipe, but only in certain parts of the south-Arkansas, Tennessee, and Texas are some of the states you'll more commonly find folks familiar with this scrumptious dish! I first discovered it about 10 years ago, at a church function we visited in Tennessee. Since then I have been hooked, and although it's taken quite a few tries, I finally have a recipe that turns out the perfect chocolate gravy. What do you do with chocolate gravy? you ask. My favorite is to top homemade buttermilk biscuits with it for breakfast, but a lot of people also eat it by itself. 


So, for anyone who wants to try this yummy breakfast (chocolate for breakfast? Who wouldn't love it!), here is my recipe:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Cocoa
1/4 cup Flour
2 c. Milk
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

Directions:
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add sugar, cocoa, flour and milk and mix. Heat on medium until all ingredients are dissolved/blended. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Serve hot over biscuits. Store leftovers (if you have any) in the refrigerator, and simply reheat in the microwave when needed.
