Chocolate Gravy

About two years ago I heard a friend mention chocolate gravy. I had never heard of it, but since I don't share a love of chocolate that doesn't surprise me. I sometimes tend to bypass 'chocolate' anything. However the word gravy should have gotten my attention as I only eat mashed potatoes as an excuse to keep the gravy on my fork... although I've been known to use a spoon. I love gravy!

That is when I started to investigate just what chocolate gravy was. From the look of it chocolate gravy was just a less rich version of homemade chocolate pudding from what I could tell anyway. No eggs, just thick chocolate milk. But obviously people like it, and they seem to like it on biscuits. I think, if I was to make it I'd make my biscuits just a little on the sweet side as well. I personally would rather have some bacon, cheese and egg on my biscuits, but for those that want their chocolate gravy, I'll include this recipe for you. Although recipes vary slightly on amounts or some use part water instead of milk, this one seems to be a compilation of the 3 I found that looked the best. Enjoy your chocolate.
