Gravy…that is chocolate? Ew.
That is the response that I got from my hubby and siblings-in-laws. I told them, if it made them feel better they could call it chocolate sauce. It did. Upon tasting it, I got the seal of approval; not that I needed it for this recipe though. It has been in my family for generations. My great grandmother, a legendary cook who lived on a farm and could turn road kill into a feast, made this for my daddy in his childhood. He brought the recipe to our Christmas morning breakfast feast and I look forward to this tradition every year. I also make it on other special occasions such the annual ski trip with the in-laws! Last week-end was the first. I had a great kitchen in a big log cabin to bake in! That called for some cozy comfort food. And this can be made in a jiffy.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1½ tbsp cocoa powder (not to be confused with the sweetened kind)
- 2 tbsp all purpose flour
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Mix sugar, cocoa, and flour in small pot until consistent. Leave no flour lumps.
- Add milk and stir constantly over medium heat for 5-10 minutes. It becomes thicker but is still pretty runny. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
- Serve over warm biscuits.
Best served over warm buttermilk biscuits. Mmmm.
