Chocolate gravy? Well in all my born days! We’ve all slathered our pancakes with sweet maple syrup, smeared our toast with Nutella, and peanut-buttered-and-jellied our bread, right? Well then there’s no reason why you have not chocolafied your gravy! If it sounds too weird, think of it like hot pudding, or a sweet Béchamel sauce – all gone cuckoo for cocoa. I promise you, tasting homemade chocolate gravy may bring you one step closer to gravy utopia. Chocolate gravy is a nearly forgotten southern tradition believed to have originated in the homes of the Appalachian Mountains and Deep South, and perhaps even as old as the 16th-17th century.
I've created this spicy rendition by studying many coveted chocolate gravy family recipes and added a little 'kick'. Perfect for a cold winter morning, a family breakfast, or a quick wake-up call accompanied by a nice cup of hot coffee or tea.
