Chocolate Gravy

Since I talked about this in the Foodie Survey I decided to post a recipe :)

If you are a little skeptical I understand!! You can half the recipe so you don't waste anything but I can almost guarantee that you will love this over hot biscuits or toast or even pancakes or waffles. (I just had a thought.. this woudl be great over fresh strawberries yum.) It is a southern "thang" but so quick and yummy. With ingredients that you probably already have on hand!!

Chocolate Gravy

1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 cups milk


Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Mix the flour and cocoa together and then add to butter; stir until a thick paste is formed. Stir in sugar and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick. But do not let it cook too long or it will be pudding like (although it still tastes good that way LOL).

You can add a little (about 1 tbsp) vanilla if you like.

P.S. You can cook this in the microwave, too. Just stir every two minutes until it's thickened.

I'm wondering if I should just pretend you never told me about this recipe.

Ha, I'm with Blueviolet. .... I have my running shoes on. I'm think about running right into my kitchen and making this. Then drinking it and licking the bowl. I'm bad, real bad.
