Decadent Breakfast Side: Chocolate Gravy

I was looking for delicious side dishes that would help us celebrate chocolate month when I came across this recipe for chocolate gravy. It sounds a bit crazy, but the concept of biscuits and chocolate gravy looks really delicious. It is actually more of a dessert, or breakfast pudding, than a side, but how thrilled will your guests be when you slather their biscuits in creamy chocolate? To get the recipe,


Chocolate 'Gravy' for Biscuits
From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

8 servings
Hands on: 12 minutes
Total time: 12 minutes

1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups whole milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter

  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and cocoa with a whisk until no clumps of flour or cocoa remain.
  2. Whisk in the milk until well-combined.
  3. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to boil and then thickens like gravy, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the butter until it melts.
  5. Serve this "gravy" — basically a thin chocolate pudding — over buttermilk biscuits that have been split and buttered.
  6. Garnish the plate with raspberries or strawberries, if you like.

My grandmother and mom have also made this for years. It's always a dark rich chocolate on sweet buttermilk biscuits. So delicious I want some right now!

Not for breakfast (would rather have sausage gravy), but chocolate gravy might be tasty over little shortcakes w/ sliced strawberries.

I'd serve chocolate gravy with chocolate chip pancakes or for an afternoon snack with scones. Yum :feedme:

Ohmygod! I love chocolate gravy and biscuits!!! I think it's a Southern thing, too. My grandma and my aunts on my mom's side of the family always make this for us when we visit them in Mississippi. When I first told my husband about it, he was a little hesitant about it. But now when we visit, he's always asking which morning we're going to be having chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast. It's total comfort food. Love it!

My Mammy (that's my Grandma) makes this! It's a southern thing I think! It is pretty good. Best for special occasions I think though!

Chocolate gravy and biscuits sounds good, but we make something called hot cakes and chocolate. the gravy looks like basically the same thing you have here except maybe a little thicker. the hot cakes are like thick fried pancakes. *heaven*

Not for breakfast, but it WOULD make a yummy dessert if you added some berries and maybe a little ice cream.
