CHOCOLATE GRAVY – The Southern Lady Cooks


Chocolate Gravy is an old-fashioned recipe you will fall in love with and serve time and time again. It’s a delicious treat over biscuits, waffles, pancakes, etc. We love it over biscuits and have enjoyed it for many, many years.

Chocolate Gravy

We love this chocolate gravy on our cathead biscuits. They have hundreds of reviews and are a very popular recipe for a reason!

❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This recipe was made by our Mother, and her Mother made it for her.. so it goes way back, which is one reason why we love it. Plus, it’s just delicious! I do have to laugh; every time I post this recipe on social media, someone confuses it with adding chocolate to sausage gravy. Not sure why that happens but this isn’t made with sausage gravy! This is a sweet chocolate sauce you pour over biscuits.

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Sugar
  • Cocoa
  • All-purpose flour
  • Carnation evaporated milk

  • Salt
  • Vanilla

SWAPS

Many people don’t add cinnamon, but it is how our family has made this recipe for many years, so we always use it. You can leave it out if you like, but it adds a great flavor. Nut’s are optional too.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This is a very simple recipe to make and only takes a little time. You can throw this together quickly on a weekend morning to enjoy with your biscuits.

Why is my chocolate gravy not thick?

You didn’t cook it long enough. You really need to cook it until it is thick, which depending on the heat you use (we suggest medium heat) will how long that will take.

Yes, you absolutely can and heat it up in the microwave or on a low heat when you are ready to serve it.
