From the Northeast. Learned of Chocolate Gravy when I served in the Army. Buddies mom would bring four of us to Tennessee from South Carolina. She would serve us this for breakfast. Brings back alot of fond memories.

I have never had chocolate gravy before. Whenever I saw the recipes I actually thought it sounded kind of gross putting a chocolate sauce over biscuits. I got curious and made a small batch today for some leftover biscuits I had. OMG! I am so addicted! I even made another small batch again. Love this! Thanks :)

It was good, but way too sweet! should maybe use a lil less sugar next time and a lil more butter. Pretty close to the way momma use to make it.

Mom always made chocolate gravy for breakfast as a treat for us once in a while. We loved it and still do. She used water instead of milk and no thickening she just simmered it down to a syrup and we had it with hot biscuits and butter. Sometimes should would make vanilla gravy and just leave out the chocolate, we liked that too!

This gravy is so great. I married into a country family and was introduced to chocolate gravy about twenty years ago. Unfortunately the recipe died with my mother-in-law, but this is it and my husband is a happy camper now!!!

I was delighted to show this recipe to my mom who grew up in the South in the 30's and 40's. I knew her mom made chocolate gravy from the stories she told us about her growing up years. She smiled and said it sounded just like her mom's...except her mom added a little vanilla. Great memories for her.

I remember my aunt fixing this recipe for my brothers and cousins when we were growing up. I've fixed this for my twins when they were growing up and they loved it.I'm really surprised that more people have not heard of this recipe.

Thanks so much for putting this recipe on Food.com. I got up this morning thinking of my grandmother's recipe for Chocolate Gravy. When I was a kid spending the night with her, she always asked my Sister and I every morning what we wanted for breakfast. "Chocolate Gravy!" was always the answer. Unfortunately I didn't get her recipe or my Mom's before they both passed away. But this tastes just like it! You have brought back many happy memories.
