Zollicoffer Special – Chocolate Gravy

On the occasional Saturday, my mom would surprise us with a special breakfast treat – hot biscuits and chocolate gravy. If you’ve never had it, you don’t know what you’re missing! My sister (you know, the MAD one) has kept the tradition going, and made it for everyone during the 50th Anniversary weekend. If you feel like giving it a try, thus ensuring your children will love you forever, the recipe is below.

Chocolate Gravy ( Passed down from Granny Lucille Lewis)

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and  1 cup milk in a sauce pan.

While that’s melting, mix together 1/4 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 heaping tablespoons flour, and a smidge  of salt.

Once the butter has completely melted into the  milk, whisk in the dry ingredients.


Uh…that’s it for Granny’s recipe. BUT, Tania the Mad swears that she’s perfected it. If you TRUST her, then do the following:

As the mixture starts to thicken, add in another 2 tablespoons butter, and 1 cup of milk.

Then pour it on your biscuits. Granted, my mother made her biscuits from scratch, but who has time for that? It’s CHOCOLATE, for breakfast!  The frozen kind will work fine.


All that’s missing is a big pat of butter melting in the middle. Okay, so it doesn’t LOOK all that appetizing, but it is yummy. I don’t know of many people or places that make chocolate gravy, but it’s big in my hometown. A few years ago, while visiting the family, we went to a local restaurant for  breakfast and they had it on their BUFFET. Of course, it was right next to a pile of fried bologna, but still.

  1. okay.
    1. Thanks a lot for writing a good blog. Unfortunately….YOU’RE sucking away time from my kids. I mean, I love reading it, dang it. And I don’t have time to go around surfing the web. Thanks a lot, for making my life even busier.
    2. The chocolate gravy biscuits. I may have to boycott your blog for not only the description, but the pics. Not fair. You see, I can’t satisfy those kind of cravings. I mean, who knows when the next time I will get to USA? Dang it again. Now, I am gonna have to carry around with me this latent longing for chocolate gravy covered biscuits. I am gonna have to go and pray through this one, get deliverance or something………

  2. You can’t get chocolate covered biscuits in India? What is up with THAT? I’d be happy to send my sister and a bag of groceries to you for awhile!
