The Shady Porch: Old Fashioned Chocolate Gravy for Breakfast


Old Fashioned Chocolate Gravy for Breakfast

Homemade Chocolate Gravy is a family favorite from my Nanna's kitchen. I wrote the recipe in my cookbook as she dictated the ingredients and steps while she made some many moons ago. We still prepare it from time-to-time; it never fails to bring back wonderful memories. The only way I know to serve chocolate gravy is with hot biscuits and butter. My hubby did not grow up eating chocolate gravy and, as a result, he's not a fan...UNTIL...long after breakfast and the leftover gravy (if there is leftover) has cooled and set up; then he calls it pudding. 

Old Fashioned Chocolate Gravy for Breakfast
Breakfast favorite from childhood...Old Fashioned Chocolate Gravy

3-4 T. Hershey's cocoa
4 T. flour (SR or all-purpose)
1/2 cup sugar (we have made it with Splenda Blend)
2 cups of water

1.  In a small pot, stir all of the dry ingredients together. 
2.  Pour enough of the water into the dry ingredients to create a paste. This will will help prevent lumpy gravy. 
3.  Slowly add the remaining 2 cups of water, stirring steadily.
4.  Over medium heat, stir occasionally; allow gravy to thicken.
