Old Fashion Chocolate Gravy

July 11, 2009

There are no pics with this post because simply, most of it was gone pretty fast.

But this morning I wanted chocolate gravy really bad, I haven't had it since my grandparents brought some mix back from Arkansas years ago, so I found a easy recipe and whipped some up. It's really sweet, ole Jeremy doesn't do sweet in the morning, but I had to have it anyway.

Chocolate Gravy:

1 1/4 c milk
1 c sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp coco powder
pinch of salt{brings the flavor out in sweets well}
1 tbsp butter

Mix everything together {except butter} in a sauce pan and whisk until it comes to a boil. Add butter.

I had to let mine boil a bit more than the recipes I saw so that it got to the thickness I like gravy at. Also I put a little more flour in than a tbsp, I just thought it didn't sound like enough. But it came out really well, I am tempted to dip some strawberries in it...but I may hold off and save it for breakfast tomorrow.


  1. This sounds really good! I didn't know that you're so into cooking. Lots of people I know just go out to eat nowadays because they're so busy, don't know how to cook, or both! So, it's nice to know that I know someone who puts love into cooking! I'm going to have to use some of your recipes one day!

  2. We have a family recipe of chocolate gravy too that we enjoy. It has been handed down from my daddy's mom to my mom to me and I included it on an index card of family recipes for Brittany's wedding shower. I will have to remind her to cook it for Natalie soon. My mom cooked it for Natalie yesterday morning. She LOVE IT and wanted it for supper too!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE chocolate gravy. Dan hates it. He had never heard of it until he met he.
