"Southern Comfort" AKA Chocolate Gravy

Pin It!
They say that
"Cooking is love made visible"
& I believe it
 because when my moma
made chocolate gravy for me, 
I knew I was loved!
Now that I'm grown up,
if I'm having a really bad week . . .
I still indulge in a little southern comfort.

{And I usually just make canned biscuits to go
with it - don't tell Aunt Evalee!}

Here's my recipe for chocolate bliss:

Chocolate Gravy
  • 1 Tbsp. Hershey's Natural Unsweetened Cocoa {dry powder}
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1  1/2 cup water
Put all the dry ingredients together in a saucepan & mix with a spoon. SLOWLY add liquids - stirring with a whisk to avoid lumps.  
Cook over medium heat {keep stirring} until thickened. SERVE WITH BISCUITS & LOTS OF BUTTER! {Remember, this is comfort food!}

*You can also add chocolate chips to make it richer--this goes great with scones. Olive Garden serves something very much like it.


  1. Oh my gosh! That sounds delicious! Once I get off this really restrictive diet I'll have to try it. I'm sorry I missed the get together. I bet it was a blast. I hope to make the next one.

  2. What? Chocolate gravy? Holy Hannah!!!!

  4. I think I need a batch of chocolate gravy on hand at all times! Looks delicious! And what a lovely group of ladies. :)

  5. Since I didn't make the blogging dinner, I decided to come her and meet you. Wish I could have met you in person.

    I think I'd like that chocolate gravy over some full fat ice cream!

  6. Oh gosh.. that looks delicious.. wow!! and a must try!! I Like the fact.. that you've made it sound so easy!!
