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. Read More

I had serious issues getting the sugar to melt in with the roux before the coco powder started burning, even after watching the video, changing pans, changing temperatures, melting through a whisk, etc. I just wasted so much cocoa powder. Read More

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. Read More

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." Read More
