Directions

  1. Whisk the cocoa, flour, and sugar together in a bowl until there are no lumps. Pour the milk into the mixture and whisk until well incorporated. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until its consistency is similar to gravy, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir the butter and vanilla into the mixture until the butter is melted. Serve immediately.

This is exactly same recipe handed down through generations of my mother's southern family. We've never had it written down, so there's always too much inconsistency and variation. Thanks for putting measurements to this! I do always add a dash of salt and a bit more butter to mine than is called for here. When I was a little girl, all my friends wanted to spend the night so they could have Chocolate Gravy for breakfast. My kids have introduced several of their friends to it as well....looks like the tradition is in no danger of dying out anytime soon!

Okay, this was an okay attempt at chocolate gravy, but I had to tweak it. I live in the south and we take chocolate gravy very seriously. I had to increase the cocoa to about 1/2 cup instead of 1/4, and I had to add about 1/4 teaspoon of salt to give it some flavor. I was surprised to find this recipe didn't have any salt listed. It was good after those two things.

Awesome recipe! I lost the recipe I had written down from my aunt in Tennessee and came on here to find one. This recipe was perfect! Thanks!

My husband says this is the closest to what his grandmother in Kentucky used to make for them whrn they were kids... I did add a bit more cocoa - about 1/3 c rather than the 1/4 c. He wanted it with biscuits and that is what he got! He was in heaven.

Super good! I did follow another reviewers advice and increased the cocoa to 1/2 cup and added some salt. It was perfect! And of course, the kids loved it :)
