If you grew up in the south you (should) know about Chocolate Gravy. All it is? 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, 3 Tbsp flour, 3 Tbsp cocoa powder, 4 Tbsp sugar, 1 cup milk, 1-1/2 tsp vanilla (depends on how strong a vanilla flavor you like!). This is a Christmas morning MUST!
Paula Dean's chocolate gravy recipe - delicious! 1/3 stick butter 2/3 cup sugar 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/3 cup cocoa 2 cups whole milk Heat butter in a cast iron skillet over low heat. Mix in sugar, flour and cocoa. Slowly pour 1 cup of milk into the skillet and whisk well to remove lumps. Whisk in remaining milk, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, being careful not to scorch. Serve hot over biscuits.
