Chocolate Gravy like mom's...
I have a friend Noel who emailed me a recipe for Chocolate Gravy that her aunt use to make when she was growing up. I got up this morning and decided it would be a good day to try it out and see if it tastes like the gravy my mom use to make. It was wonderful. I also made homemade biscuits to go with it. Sure brought back memories of getting up on Saturday mornings as a little girl to the aroma of homemade biscuits baking in the oven and mom stirring up chocolate gravy in the cast iron skillet. By the way, nothing cooks better than cast iron skillets, so if you don't have any, you should hit your local flea market or antique store and buy yourself one!
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tab. cocoa
Mix together (add more or less chocolate, according to how dark you like your chocolate)
2 Tab. (level) flour or corn starch
1 1/2 cups water
Mix the water in dry mixture slowly so it will not lump.
Cook over medium heat until thickened. Serve over hot biscuits with butter.
