Re: Re: Gravies, Sauces, ETC, ETC


    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.
