Chocolate and Biscuits

READY IN: 37mins
Recipe by Jessica

This is an old family recipe that my grandfather picked up in Alabama during the depression. It sounds super sweet, but actually it's very light and it goes nicely with buttered biscuits. It makes enough for a crowd so the more biscuits you make decides how many people you shall feed.

My mother makes chocolate and biscuits, but she never measures and never makes it the same way twice... so I am looking for a recipe so I can make it for my children. I made this as written except I added 1/2tsp vanilla. It was more like chocolate syrup to me, not the texture of my mom's at all... I have to keep looking. It was easy to make and it did not go to waste. :)
