Homemade Chocolate Gravy is one of my all- time favorite breakfasts from childhood. It’s the perfect weekend treat and chocolate for breakfast is always a great idea!
Chocolate Gravy is a weekend favorite at our house. I grew up enjoying chocolate gravy. My great grandma would make it with canned biscuits but my mom always made it with homemade biscuits. Either way it is fabulous!
Chocolate Gravy and biscuits is pure comfort food. My kids always get excited when they know I’m making it for breakfast.
When my oldest son was in college he called me to get some tips for making chocolate gravy. He had the ingredients list but couldn’t quite figure out how to get the lumps out. I told him to whisk it and he said the best he could do was a fork.
It turned out just perfect and they all loved it. I was so surprised that he was making chocolate gravy for his college buddies, totally made my day.
I am pretty sure Chocolate Gravy is a southern thing but I have yet to make it for anyone who didn’t fall in love with it. Most are skeptical, I mean it does sound a little strange but it’s always an instant favorite.
I’ve made chocolate gravy countless times over the years and lately I’ve been adding a bit of extra chocolate that takes this classic to over the top amazing. I mean you can’t have too much chocolate, not even for breakfast.
