"Southern Comfort" AKA Chocolate Gravy

Pin It!
They say that
"Cooking is love made visible"
& I believe it
 because when my momma
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.

ALSO . . . 
I recently went to a get-together for local bloggers
& I really enjoyed meeting all these impressive ladies!
I found each one to be talented, fun, & smart.

Thanks girls!
