Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits
In Southern Kentucky, it was the breakfast you begged for. Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits were mom and granny’s treat for the youngsters. When we had kids ourselves, if we wanted them to get tasks done, all you had to do is say that Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits will be ready when those chores are finished! As grown men, honestly this is still our favorite.

HOW TO MAKE OUR CHOCOLATE SAUCE GRAVY AND BISCUITS
Put butter to the skillet and allow it to melt. Heat the skillet on medium setting to get the butter hot and sizzling.
Sprinkle flour over the melted butter mixture in the skillet. Whisk in the cocoa power together to make a brown paste, being sure to leave no lumps. Stir and blend the sugar into the skillet. Increase the temperature to medium high.
Gradually add in the milk, whisking constantly until gravy thickens.
If mixture gets too thick gradually add a little more milk.
Add the vanilla extract after you have reached the gravy consistency. Continue to heat and stir until ready to serve over an open biscuit.
