Art Stone from Honest Biscuit in Seattle was inspired by his grandmother's version of this down-home, easy-to-make breakfast staple that's served over fluffy buttermilk biscuits. Sounds kind of funny if you've never tried it before, but one bite and you'll be hooked.

5 stars all the way so delicious. I did add vanilla off-heat and since my butter was unsalted I added some salt too. I only make chocolate gravy once every 5 years or so but so worth it every time! Thanks for sharing.

This is very similar to the chocolate gravy that I learned to make from my mother who learned from her mother. Three generations that i know making this. Only difference is we use some vanilla in it. Sooo yummy over warm fresh homemade biscuits.

This recipe is spot on and makes a great tasting chocolate gravy! Great on home made biscuits or ice cream.

I made as instructed but with a little less milk since I wanted it a bit thicker. Very good over ice cream. Note that after adding the cocoa and sugar it doesn't really "dissolve." I stirred a pretty long time thinking the sugar would liquefy but I think it means "well blended."

I grew up eating "Chocolate Syrup and Biscuts". This recipe is close to what Mama made. My kids love it

Since I used unsalted butter I threw in some salt; also added vanilla. Pudding like texture. Good.
