Southern Chocolate Gravy Christmas Recipe

December 25th, 2007

chocolate-gravy.jpgAfter a fairly long dry spell, Travis Sago of bum marketing fame sent out a “happy holidays” email today and shared with us one of his traditional Christmas recipes that I have not yet tried. Judging by the ingredients and my own experience, it is essentially a chocolate fudge syrup that can be used as a topping for various kinds of desserts or snacks. Apparently Travis uses it on biscuits and likes the taste quite well:

HO! HO! HO!…H-a-p-p-y Holidays.

This is my favorite morning of the year! Doesn’t everything just feel cleaner, more peaceful and beautiful this morning?

I l-o-v-e Christmas morning and I wanted to share with you one of my very favorite southern recipes.

Has been in our family…at least 100 years as it was made by my Great Grandmother…who made it for my Dad’s Mother… who made it for my Dad…who made it for me and my brother and two sisters.

I warn you though…

It is very Southern and when anyone first hears of it they crinkle their nose and say “Eeeew”…

But when they TASTE IT…

The recipe is for a divine “chocolate gravy”…you serve it over piping hot biscuits…for a dessert or for a very special breakfast (like Christmas morning). I tell ya now… that there is absolutely NO FOOD VALUE : )

It is just one of those “guilty pleasures”…

Here it is and I hope you give it a try! It’s really simple:

Southern Chocolate Gravy

1/2 Cup Sugar
4 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoons Powdered Cocoa
2 Cups Milk
1 1/2 Teaspoons Butter

Mix sugar, flour and cocoa. Then add your milk. Put in a sauce pan. Heat on a medium to high setting constantly stirring until your gravy thickens (I like mine really thick). Once thick then mix in your butter.

Serve over piping hot biscuits and be prepared to be loved and remembered forever : )

Happy holidays to you and your family!

    Wow, it’s good that you finally found the recipe here. Apparently this one is rather obscure - I had never heard of it until I received the email cited in the post.
