Lets Talk About Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy....




Growing up in the South,biscuits and chocolate gravy were (and still are) a staple at breakfast. Especially at my Nonnies house. I honestly never knew it was a Southern thing until I met my husband. (his family is from Iowa) Gabe thought I was crazy the first time I made it for him! It quickly became one of his favorite breakfasts though. Lately, I have seen a couple of recipes floating around on Pinterest. Well, today, I'm going to share my Nonnie's chocolate gravy recipe with you. This is the one that I grew up with. You can make it on the stove or in the microwave. Whatever tickles your fancy.


You need:
1 c sugar
1 T flour
3 T cocoa
1 c milk
2 T butter
1 t vanilla

Mix sugar, flour, and cocoa. Stir in milk. Cook in microwave or on stove until thickend. Add butter and vanilla. Serve over hot, buttered biscuits. Enjoy!

*To be honest I make my biscuits using Bisquick. Don't judge!*

So tell me, did any of ya'll grow up eating biscuits and chocolate gravy? If so, share your recipe!
