When I was a child, my grandmother used to make the most delicious thing for us, for a special treat. She called it chocolate gravy. Though she had put it on a variety of things over the years, my favorite was butter cookies. She would make the most wonderful cookies and while they were cooling, she would make the gravy. Then, while the cookies and the gravy were still warm, she would put the cookies on a dessert plate and drizzle the chocolate gravy all over them. Those memories are so special to me, they still make me smile.
I wanted to share her recipe for chocolate gravy with you, so you can share some special moments with your own kids or grandkids and make some lovely memories.
Over low heat whisk the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, milk and water.
Stirring continuously, bring to a boil and continue stirring until thickened to the proper consistency of gravy.
Remove from heat completely, and add vanilla and butter.
Stir until melted and well mixed
IMPORTANT - From the time that you turn on the heat, until the time the gravy thickens and you remove it from the heat, you must constantly stir. If you don't it can scorch and ruin the whole pan of gravy.
The gravy should we served right away. It can be saved and reheated (do not reheat in a microwave!) but it is not nearly as good the second time around.
Chocolate gravy is delicious served on many things:
Rice Krispie treats
Angel Food Cake
Have a great week,
