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.

    1. You can keep any leftovers in the refrigerator for a day or two. You might need to add a bit of milk when you reheat it. I hope that helps.

  1. My Mom used to make this and it was so good. I am glad that I found your recipe. I am going to make some tomorrow!

  2. Hi, if I want to use this as an icing over a chocolate cake, can I reduce the amount of milk added so that it’s thicker?

  3. My son is almost fifty. I have made this for him all his life. Now the grandchildren enjoy it. It’s a wonderful recipe. Thank you

  4. I honestly cannot believe I just found this recipe. Not so much because of what it is but rather I didn’t realize this was a thing so many other people ate. My 40-something husband had this growing up all of the time. I unfortunately didn’t get to meet his mom but I’ve heard stories about her making it. This is a tradition that I am proud to do – but on birthday and special occasions only. I don’t really eat it. I’m a sausage gravy girl through and through.

    This recipe is almost verbatim of what I do… but I cheat. I put everything into a Pyrex bowl in the microwave. Make sure you watch it otherwise you will have a chocolate mess if it boils over! Thank you for a great recipe and a lot of nostalgia.

  5. Wow this is my new favorite kind of gravy! Lol. Seriously – who would have thought of chocolate gravy before. What a brilliant breakfast idea. We had it as dessert but I think this would be awesome for a special holiday or birthday breakfast. Thanks!

  6. This is really amazing and tasty! Thanks a bunch for sharing this chocolate gravy! Fam really loves it! Well done!
