Recipe of the Week: Chocolate Gravy

So I can just hear some of you as you exclaim, "Chocolate gravy!  Gross!"
But I am here to tell you that chocolate gravy is awesome!  It's really not healthy but it is a great occasional breakfast treat.  I make it mostly for special occasions.  Christmas morning, birthday breakfasts, that kind of special.  It is really simple to make and is served over warm biscuits. I can remember my grandmother, Vivian, making this for me and my sisters when we stayed at her house.  It brings back good memories and good feelings.  I hope it does the same for my kids.

Chocolate Gravy
6 servings

1 stick butter
4 tablespoons Hershey's cocoa powder
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk

In a medium sized skillet melt the butter.  FYI--these pictures are of the recipe doubled...I had company.

Then add flour, cocoa and sugar.  Stir to make a paste.

Then pour in milk and stir until thickened.

Get ready to fall in love with chocolate gravy!


  1. Oh yummy! This is the exact recipe I use and LOVE!! I think it may be our dinner one night this week...

  2. Awesome! Have you seen Chocolat (or read the book)? At one point, the main character serves a meal with chocolate in every serving -- including chocolate gravy! I didn't think it was possible...until now! Thanks for sharing. I'm totally going to try this. :)

  3. Ooh, I'll have to make this for my husband who doesn't like gravy. :)

  4. Pure indulgence and I love it! :) (I missed this on the first visit.)
