Art's Southern-Style Chocolate Gravy

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"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."

This tasted just like grandma used to make!

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