I'm new here but wanted to respond to the Chocolate Gravy request.  I have three distinctively different recipes for Chocolate Gravy in my recipes 'stash' (1000's of recipes!!!).  Here they are...............

p.s. Can I change this font or is everything in verdana?

3/4-cup sugar
4-tablespoons flour
5-tablespoons cocoa
1/2-teaspoon salt
2-cups milk
1-teaspoon vanilla
2-tablespoons butter

Mix all dry ingredients in saucepan. Add a small amount of milk, stirring to mix well. Add the remaining milk. Cook on medium heat till thick. Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Serve over buttered biscuits or pancakes.
3-tablespoons Cocoa
1-cup Sugar
2-tablespoons Flour
2-cups Milk
2-tablespoon Butter
2-tablespoon Vanilla Extract (REAL PLEASE)

Mix the cocoa, sugar, and flour together. Add the milk, making sure it mixes smoothly. Heat (medium) and stir constantly until it thickens. This takes about 8 minutes. Take off of heat. Add butter. Stir until it is melted and mixed. Add vanilla and stir until mixed. Serve hot over buttered biscuits. Buttered toast will do in a pinch.
Notes: This is an almost lost Ozark classic. It hardly ever shows up in ethnic or regional cookbooks.
3/4-cup flour
1/2-cup sugar (to taste)
3-Tablespoon Hershey's cocoa
2 1/2-cups milk

Mix all ingredients in skillet, cook over medium heat until thick. Serve over hot buttered biscuits.

Chocolate Gravy Recipe:
Combine in a heavy saucepan 2 Tbs cocoa (Hershey's appears to be the preferred brand), about 2 Tbs sugar, more or less, depending on how sweet you like it, and 1 Tbs flour. Mix thoroughly. Into that mixture, add about 1 cup of milk, a little at a time, mixing until smooth. If it ends up being too thick, you can add more milk later to thin it. Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, till thickened. Check for desired thickness and sweetness, and adjust if
Remove from heat, and stir in 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Pour over buttered biscuits and serve with cold milk. Makes about one cup, which is two servings or so.
