This was my great-grandmother's recipe handed down from generation to generation. This was always served on special occasions. It was one thing us kids looked forward to when visiting grandma's house.

Chocolate Gravy is a staple in the South. I introduced it to my grandchildren tonight. They thought it sounded terrible so I explained that it's kind of like eating warm chocolate pudding. They wanted it over pound cake but it's traditionally served over biscuits. This recipe is very good! Read More

We had chocolate gravy at my mother-in-law s house and at home for all birthdays and holidays!! One holiday we didn t have the right ingredients so we went online and found your recipe. My kids LOVED and now we use cocoa rather than Nestle s Quik. Thanks for bringing true about her gravy into our home. Read More
