Chocolate Gravy

It doesn't get more Southern than Chocolate Gravy for breakfast! Yes, really it is a thing.

Chocolate Gravy is a very Southern recipe passed to me from my Mother-in-Law. She made this for my husband growing up for a special treat. It is similar to the consistency of pudding and served over biscuits. It is one of my husbands favorites to this day.  I suggest everyone enjoys it at least once in their lives. Once you give it a try you will either fall madly in love or it won’t be your thing. If you don’t love it we would be surprised.

It doesn’t get more Southern than Chocolate Gravy for breakfast! Yes, really it is a thing. You can also serve this over waffles. Regardless of what bread you decide to use be sure to serve it when it is warm. There are never any leftovers when my Mother-in-Law fixes this for my husband. He still loves to enjoy it to this day. He always had it on special occasions like his birthday and Christmas.

Have you tried it before? It is something you have to try once that is for sure!

  1. This is so funny, I was just thinking of Chocolate gravy last night. I remember a friend of mine, when I was a teen making this. (Along time ago lol) I was wishing I had a recipe. And here today you posted your recipe. Can’t wait to try it.
    Thanks a bunch!

  2. My mother also made this for our family.She would serve it for breakfast with hot homemade biscuits.It was passed down from generations.Great memories!

  3. Did you know in the OLD south I am told this was made with blood from the cow . A cheap form of protein they thought .I like this MUCH better = )

  4. I made some this morning but I have a different reciep. 1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, 3 tablespoons of cocoa. Mix together then add 1 1/2 cup of milk bring to a boil on med heat. Then add 2 teaspoons of butter when it thicken. Stir constanly or it will burn to the pot.

  5. I just now made this chocolate gravy. It is, indeed, delicious, however, I would make two changes. I would like for it to be a little more chocolatey – just a little. I would also prefer a little less sugar. So, the next time I make it, I likely will add 1 to 2 add’l teaspoons of cocoa and maybe 1 cup sugar + 2 tablespoons sugar — I’ll have to experiment – just saying for now… We eat it over ice cream — so less sugar, of course! Love this stuff.. I can just eat it with a spoon —
