How to make Chocolate Gravy & Biscuits

How to make Chocolate Gravy & Biscuits

Have you ever had Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits for Breakfast?  If not, you are missing the best breakfast ever!

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.  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 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 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 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.

    • Joy,

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment about this Chocolate Gravy & Biscuits. I was raised in South Alabama but we did not have chocolate gravy. I am finding out that it is mainly a KY and TN thing. Is it popular in TX?

      Thanks again for all your support!
      Have a great week,
      Diane Roark
