You can watch this Video on how to make Chocolate Gravy – The Best Southern Breakfast.

Chocolate gravy and biscuits is a southern favorite for breakfast.  Yes, chocolate for breakfast.  If you have never tried chocolate gravy, I cannot stress to you what an over- the-top chocolate treat for breakfast you are missing. This is my all time favorite breakfast.  If you want to kick it up, serve it with bacon.  The sweet and salty

Chocolate Gravy Breakfast

combination is wonderful!!!  I cannot eat this gravy without thinking about “Ma Willie”, my husband’s grandmother.  She was from Tennessee where chocolate gravy is very common on the breakfast table. She was the one who introduced me to this amazing gravy when I was just a teen.  She passed away in 2008 at age 97.  Thank you Ma for the wonderful gravy!!

Chocolate Gravy

  • 4 TB flour, sifted
  • 6 TB Cocoa, sifted
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2  stick (1/4 cup) butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. In a sauce pan, heat the milk. (be careful not to burn it).
  2. Add sifted flour, cocoa, and sugar, and whisk constantly.
  3. Stir until thick and no lumps.
  4. Add butter and vanilla last. This recipe is easy and comes out smooth every time.
Ma Willie and most people who make chocolate gravy, melt the butter and then add the flour for a roux.  Next they add the milk.  I made chocolate gravy this way for years but the recipe posted that I use now is so much easier and always smooth.  Adding the butter last, gives the chocolate a glossy shine.  I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
