Southern Chocolate Gravy Recipe
If you have never tried chocolate gravy, I cannot stress to you what an over-the-top chocolate treat for breakfast you are missing. Chocolate Gravy is my all time favorite breakfast. If you want to kick it up, serve it with bacon. The sweet and salty combination is amazing!
“Ma Willie”, my husband’s grandmother made this even in her 90’s
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 teenager. Ma Willie passed away in 2008 at age 97. Thank you, Ma for introducing me to chocolate for breakfast.
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 I now have a much easier way to make chocolate gravy. It always turns out smooth with no lumps. Adding the butter last gives the chocolate a glossy shine. I hope you enjoy this chocolate gravy as much as we do.
Please try it and let me know what you think. This is one recipe I wish I could fix for you to try. I know you will love it if you enjoy chocolate.
