Chocolate Gravy is a southern classic, and old fashioned recipe that has been around for many years. It’s a family favorite and we love it! Chocolate gravy is a breakfast treat that grownups as well as children will love. If you have not tried chocolate gravy for breakfast spread over homemade biscuits you are in for a surprise. It is so good you will be going back for more. Grandmas and Nanas have been making this chocolate gravy for years for grandchildren for breakfast. A great recipe to try on family on a lazy Sunday morning.
Chocolate gravy ingredients needed:
Carnation evaporated milk
There are so many wonderful comments on this classic recipe. I will say almost every time I post this recipe in social media I get a comment about who would ever want chocolate “sausage” gravy.. not sure why anyone would think sausage would be included in this. This is a chocolate gravy but really a “chocolate sauce”. If you haven’t tried this classic, you really should!
