Phyllis' Chocolate Syrup

"This is a childhood favorite of mine. Aunt Phyllis made her famous biscuits and this Chocolate Syrup was served warm over the biscuits. This one is different from any I've seen here on Zaar. It's more of a syrup than a gravy. I recently got her to tell me how to make this. Now I make it for my boys to enjoy! It's so simple and delicious."

" I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort... "

    Oh my! This brought back so many wonderful childhood memories from grandma's house. I have always loved chocolate syrup and biscuits but never could get the recipe. My mom and grandmother do not measure when baking so I could never figure out how much of each ingredient to use. I must have stood and watched a hundred times to see if I could figure it out. This is almost a perfect match. Thank you so much!

    My DH was from Arkansas originally and when we married, his mother had to show me how to make "chocolate gravy" which is close to this, but we use a little cornstarch and milk to thicken the mixture ala "gravy"! My children are all in their 30's now and will still bring someone around to try my chocolate gravy. It was a real pleasure to see this posted here and by the way - don't forget to butter the biscuit!
