What a blast from the past!  I loved chocolate gravy for breakfast growing up on the farm.  It was guaranteed to stick to your ribs through the freezing cold mornings feeding the cattle.   Years ago the recipe used to be on the back of  the Hershey's cocoa can.  It is actually their recipe for homemade chocolate pudding.  I have the recipe, written in my schoolgirl hand.  My Mom would float a big pat of salted butter in my bowl, and I would pour the whole thing over buttered toast.  Yum.


1-1/2 to 2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour, rounded
2 Tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa, level

Combine all in saucepan, bring to low boil, cook slowly until thick.  Stir constantly.

If memory serves me right, we used rounded tablespoons of flour, because level ones called for in the recipe just didn't thicken as well.

I hope you enjoy this.

  I am looking for recipes for chocolate gravy. Yes it's for real. It used to be a real treat on Sunday after church.  As i remember it had the consistency of good ol' white (flour+milk) gravy. Oooh it tasted soooo good, with hot homemade biscuits, it is quite a treat.
 Also would like a recipe for red-eye gravy, which is quite good also. Both these gravies were from the good ol' South, in Tennessee.
 I sure hope someone can help me in this quest. TIA, that is, thanks in advance for your help in this matter.
