Southern Chocolate Gravy Recipe

If you have never tried chocolate gravy, I cannot stress to you what 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 fantastic!  

“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 fantastic 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.

  1. I haven’t tried the chocolate gravy yet, however I had it growing up in the Blue Ridge Mts. I must try it because Ma Willie reminds me so much of the southern beautiful gracious women of faith i have known.

    • Janet,

      Thank you for your kind words about Ma Willie. She was an extremely beautiful woman inside and out. She definitely loved God and I know we will see her again one day.
      Chocolate Gravy is so good. Ma Willie would melt the butter and then add the flour for a roux. Next, whisk in the milk which is the true way to make Southern Chocolate Gravy. My way is a lot easier and it never has any lumps. However you try to make the gravy, it will be delicious.

    • 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. Be sure to use the arrows to back up to the first page of the post to see all the pictures. https://recipesforourdailybread.com/best-chocolate-fudge-pie-yum/3/
