Chocolate Gravy

Since we’re on the “gravy train”….

I guess I must be living under a rock, because I have never heard of this!  Here is a recipe that will satisfy any self confessed chocoholic!  Chocolate gravy is a variety of gravy made with fat, flour, cocoa powder and sometimes a small amount of sugar. This variety is more common in cuisine of the Southern United States and is most often served as a Sunday morning dish with fresh biscuits in the Ozark and Appalachian Mountain regions.
