Ever heard of it?
I had briefly, in college, a friend of mine talked about it on occasion. It’s a Southern thing, something that can be enjoyed for breakfast or dessert.
Last Sunday, our church had an anniversary breakfast. There were about 37 biscuits left over and since I have 4 kids I was nominated to take home about 21 of them. So then I had to figure out what to do with a surplus of biscuits, without making an extra trip to the store.
Chocolate gravy came to mind and boy, was it a hit! The kids loved it, I mean what kid wouldn’t love a biscuit covered in chocolate? We had these for lunch with scrambled eggs. They’d be perfect for a weekend breakfast or any time you want to treat the kids to a special out of the ordinary meal.
4 Tablespoons COCOA POWDER
2 Tablespoons FLOUR
1 cup SUGAR
1 1/2 cups MILK (the recipe says whole, I had 2%)
4 Tablespoons BUTTER
1 teaspoon VANILLA
In a medium saucepan, whisk together dry ingredients. Add milk and stir vigorously to combine. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture bubbles. Turn heat down to medium and stir until it reaches a gravy-like consistency. Remove from heat, stir in butter and vanilla.
Let cool for a few minutes and serve over warm biscuits.
