I am glad you landed on this BEST BREAKFAST EVER, chocolate gravy recipe.

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.  It is not difficult to make since I have found a way to make it much easier and perfect every time.

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.

    • Jan,

      Thank you so much for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. If you love chocolate gravy, I am thinking you are from the south. I love it too and am so THANKFUL I can have chocolate for breakfast. Most people have no clue what they are missing! Anyway, I not sure you could get chocolate gravy think enough without tasting like flour for a pie. If you are looking for the best chocolate pie, trust me and try my Fudge Pie. Here is a direct link to the recipe. It is on the 3rd page of the post.

  1. This is the way mom made it too. Kinfolk come from every where for mom’s cat head biscuits and choclate gravy…play awhile…then eat leftovers.

  2. Honestly, I tried this over the weekend and my guests just could not get over it! I’m still getting phone calls and messages about this breakfast days later. Can’t say I’m surprised though, it was indeed great! Thanks so much! 🙂
