A special occasion treat!
When I was 13 years old, I accompanied my Grandma Bonner from California to Arkansas to visit some several family members. One morning my Great Aunt Edna made chocolate gravy for breakfast. I thought that was about the nastiest sounding stuff I could imagine…until I tried it! Oh my! Yummy stuff!
I never got my Aunt Edna’s “recipe” but I have a feeling it would be “a little this, a little that” and not really a recipe. So, I set to work and wrote my own. If you don’t feel like making homemade biscuits, this is very good over canned biscuits too (actually, for years I preferred canned biscuits for this gravy). As an added bonus, the leftover gravy becomes chocolate pudding (cover the surface with clear wrap and refrigerate).
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup flour
3 cups milk
Dash of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Notes: My favorite way to eat this is with my homemade biscuits spread with peanut butter. It’s the closest I get to eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup for breakfast and it still being considered “breakfast.”
