Southern Chocolate Gravy

In the south, there are a lot of foods that say, "I love you", but there are very few that say, "I will love you forever."

One of those foods is BACON! 

Hmmm...on second thought, bacon is the universal I-will-love-you-forever foods...

...unless it's against your religion....or your doctor's orders. In those cases, bacon sends a whole other message and you should just pass the plate to me and RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

But this post is not about my obsession enjoyment in the partaking of that delectable, smokey, salty, heaven-sent goodness. 


Not today. 

Today, I'm talkin' straight up chocolate for breakfast! 

Ladies, I'm talking to the men folk today! Hand him the apron and the whisk, and step aside. 

This is the perfect Valentine's Day breakfast food.

Enough pillow talk! Let's make some chocolate love happen!


Yields 4-6 servings
1 TBSP real butter
3 TBSP all purpose flour
1/4 c cocoa, unsweetened 
1/2 c white granulated sugar 
2 c milk (not skim)
Pinch of salt (1/8 tsp)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract 

In an iron skillet (or medium sauce pan) melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour. Turn the heat up to medium-high. Add in cocoa, sugar, salt and milk. Whisk until most of the lumps are gone. (There will still be some lumps, but if you continue to whisk, they will cook out.) Continue to whisk until gravy starts to bubble and thickens (about 10 to 15 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. 

Pour over hot biscuits and enjoy!  

I hope you enjoy this recipe! My family sure does!

If, for some reason, the gravy is lumpy, you can pour it through a mesh strainer for a silkier texture, but since I babysit the gravy and constantly stir, I've not had issues with lumps.
