Mom Foster's Hot Cocoa Pudding

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Wilmom

This was a traditional breakfast, served over hot, buttered biscuits, when I was a child. It's been in our family for generations.

So delicious. It was less floury tasting than other chocolate gravy recipes that I have tried. I used skim milk instead of whole and it turned out beautifully. It did take a bit longer to thicken but it still did. Usually, I add extra vanilla. So glad that I didn't with this recipe though. It was plenty rich as is....
