Chocolate Gravy

Chocolate Gravy is a very Southern recipe passed to me from my Mother-in-Law. She made this for my husband growing up for a special treat. It is similar to the consistency of pudding and served over biscuits. It is one of my husbands favorites to this day.  I suggest everyone enjoys it at least once in their lives.

    I made some this morning but I have a different reciep. 1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, 3 tablespoons of cocoa. Mix together then add 1 1/2 cup of milk bring to a boil on med heat. Then add 2 teaspoons of butter when it thicken. Stir constanly or it will burn to the pot.

    I just now made this chocolate gravy. It is, indeed, delicious, however, I would make two changes. I would like for it to be a little more chocolatey – just a little. I would also prefer a little less sugar. So, the next time I make it, I likely will add 1 to 2 add’l teaspoons of cocoa and maybe 1 cup sugar + 2 tablespoons sugar — I’ll have to experiment – just saying for now… We eat it over ice cream — so less sugar, of course! Love this stuff.. I can just eat it with a spoon —
