Manic Monday

This Week's Theme: Gravy

A favorite family breakfast at our home are biscuits and chocolate gravy. If you ask my kids (especially my daughter) what she wants for breakfast she'll answer quickly "chocolate gravy"! Here's the recipe for those of you who have never had or made chocolate gravy. It's a really quick and easy, delicious breakfast.
Chocolate Gravy
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbs cocoa
  • 2 cups of water or milk (I use 1c milk and 1c water)
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • pinch of salt
Mix dry ingredients together in bowl. Add water (or milk) to pan over medium heat. Slowly stir in dry ingredients. Cook until desired thickness stirring frequently. Serve over hot buttered biscuits.

Yuckers!! I hate chocolate! But as a cook, it looks really smooth, so I can at least appreciate that.

Desert Songbird said...

You and Mo must have been on the same wavelength...

Mommatude said...

I love it-I havent made it in quite a few years and doubt I know where my recipeeven is so thank you so much for posting one!!!YAY!!!

Janna said...

I've heard of sausage gravy on biscuits.
I've heard of chocolate sauce on cream puffs.
But I've never heard chocolate sauce referred to as "gravy",
And I've never seen it poured over biscuits.

Thanks for the learning experience!

The best gravy of them all -- chocolate gravy!!

Happy MM!

Gattina said...

I am not a big fan of gravies !

But if you want to read a hilarious story which happened to us yesterday (in Egypt) then read my post tomorrow ! I only say one word : Call boys

Mags said...

Now, this is a better kind of chocolate gravy than Mo talked about today. This one's yummy!

Matt-Man said...

Call me strange but that reminds me of something I just cant comment about. Cheers!!

Alice - I Was Born2Cree8 said...

Oh maaaaaaan, how can you eat that and not be 350 pounds?? That sounds soooooo good. Is it Baking Powder biscuits you use?? Or what kind?? I may one day get the chance to feed this to other people so I can eat some without eating the whole thing by myself... and I likely would. How much does it make?? Would it go good on ice cream or other things?? Chocolate sauce on everything, haha.

Reba @ Reba's Run said...

WHOOF!! Chocolate gravy sounds even better than beef gravy or chicken gravy... BARK! I wanna come eat at your house!

Travis said...

I'll have some chocolate gravy over two scoops of ice cream with some whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry.

Happy MM!

Amazing Gracie said...

Absolute YUM!!! Never heard of it, obviously never tried it, but it's CHOCOLATE! THe nectar of the gods...
It's got to be divine!

katherine. said...

this could be yummy....I am copying it...

Linda said...

Oh! So this is what Mo was talking about when he wrote that post about chocolate gravy! Well, that doesn't sound so bad as long as you don't put it over sausage gravy!

Mo said...

GOOD GRAVY, now I've seen it all.
An actual recipe for the stuff.
I'll be darned.

Love ya!
mo
