I have to say I was pleasently suprised to find this recipe. Chocolate Gravy is one of those foods that isn't that well known these days, even in the south. (at least as far as younger folks go) I remember my mother fixing this when I was growing up, and telling me stories about her mother fixing it for her. Try this recipe. It may sound a bit odd, but it is a unique experience that you will enjoy.
Hi Nancy, this stuff is awesome! This was one of the few treats we had growing up. I started to post a chocolate gravy recipe given to me by my mother before she passed away. Your recipe is so close to hers, and the fact that you use evaporated milk, gives me reason to instead add your version to my cookbook. You use a little more butter than mom did, but that's really the only difference. Thanks for posting.
This was awesome! Sounded weird to my family but they'll give anything a try once. I have extra sauce leftover & can't wait to make more biscuits. We had this for Saturday morning breakfast instead of pancakes & I served it alongside a ham & cheese omelet. Thanks for a really fun recipe, Nancy!
