Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe reminds me of both my Great Grandma Gadberry and my Grandma Phillips, and my mother used to make this too for those special breakfasts!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup granulated sugar
1 can evaporated milk


Cook sugar and evaporated milk together until it thickens.

Add a little cocoa to make chocolate gravy!

(Sometimes Grandma would just use sweetened condensed milk and cocoa and simply warm it up!)
