Tasty Tuesdays -- Chocolate Gravy & Biscuits!

So in an effort to be more organized and consistent with my blogging, I'm planning to use Tuesdays to post about new recipes I've tried . . . or old recipes I love!  Basically I'm going to blog about food on Tuesdays!

This past Thanksgiving, our family from up North . . . the ones in Pontotoc . . . came down to our house for the holiday.  Dave's brother Joe, his wife, Marlana, and their daughter, Madison, came down on Friday and spent the night before the big Ferrell Thanksgiving on Saturday.  I know Thanksgiving is usually on Thursday, but when your sweet husband has to work on Thanksgiving . . . you move Thanksgiving!

Marlana, Madison, and I had a great time cooking in the kitchen preparing the food for the next day.  We also took a break while the ham was cooking to do a little painting and crafting .

We had a  lot of fun together.  I really enjoyed cooking with Marlana . . . . so the next morning when she suggested we have chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast . . . I decided to trust her and give chocolate gravy and biscuits a try!  I mean . . . chocolate -- check -- gravy -- check -- biscuits -- check!  What's not to love about any of those ingredients?!?

Apparently Marlana's mother makes chocolate gravy for the grandkids whenever they spend the night with her.  They love it.  So here we go!

Pour a cup of sugar in a sauce pan.

Add 3 Tbsp of self-rising flour and 3 Tbsp of cocoa to the sugar.  Mix the ingredients together so that all are mixed evenly with no lumps.

Add 4 Tbsp of butter to the pan.  ( I think that looks like more than 4 tablespoons Marlana!)

Then cut the heat on the stove . . . low to medium heat stirring constantly and add 1 to 2 cups of milk (Marlana used approximately 1- 1/2 cups) to the saucepan stirring all the ingredients together as the gravy starts to heat and all the ingredients start to melt together.  Stir the gravy constantly as it heats up and thickens to the consistency of gravy.  :)  Serve over biscuits.

Marlana thought her gravy was a little too thick.  I thought it tasted wonderful.  The only problem I saw with her chocolate gravy . . . . she didn't make enough! 

What did it taste like . . . . This chocolate gravy on a biscuit . . . It tastes like chocolate pie!  Yum Yum Yum!

I wish I had a picture of the chocolate gravy on a biscuit, but I forgot . . . the chocolate mesmerized me and all I could do was eat it up!  So no picture!  Sorry!

The Chocolate Gravy was so good and made for a very special breakfast treat for 

                              the Ferrell boys and me!

Chocolate Gravy:

1 cup of Sugar
3 Tbsp of Self-Rising Flour
3 Tbsp of Cocoa
1/2 stick of Butter
Milk (about 1 1/2 cups of milk.  Enough to get the gravy to the right consistency)

Mix all ingredients together on the stove over low to medium heat until all the ingredients are melted together and the gravy thickens to the right consistency.  Serve over biscuits . . . or ice cream!  Yum!
