A real breakfast staple in our family growing up, my family has been serving chocolate gravy for generations - at least 6.

Chocolate gravy goes great with a more traditional breakfast of eggs, biscuits, and bacon/sausage. The following recipe is my great-grandmother's recipe, unaltered, although I make sure to use *good* high-quality cocoa.

I have never heard of this recipe before - sounds really fun to try out. :)

Thanks for the chocolate gravy recipe.
This is one of my favorite foods! I grew up on this, and like you we are in about the 5th or 6th generation of making this gravy.
I love to see people sharing their old recipes!
Take care, Pat
