I was recently scanning through chocolate recipes (what else is new) when I glanced across something that said Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy. Wait… what? The thought of having chocolate in a way I have never had it before, as a gravy, was enough for me. I was sold! I decided to make this for breakfast the next day which was easy since I had all the ingredients on hand.

I know some of you may turn away from the idea of having chocolate for breakfast, but is pancake syrup any better for you? Nope. Or what about that white chocolate mocha from Starbucks every morning? Nope! So go ahead, pull out the cocoa powder and make breakfast.

Chocolate Gravy has a rich history and has been cooked for hundreds of years. Modern recipes from for chocolate gravy have evolved from the popular 19th century combinations of cocoa and pudding.

Chocolate gravy has mainly been cooked in the South, and after researching the scrumptious meal I realized many people have strong feelings about it. For many people, chocolate gravy makes them think about their Grandmother, their father, Sunday mornings. For me, I think about the best breakfast ever.

I have a confession. I used canned biscuits!
Oh the shame… I didn’t want to tell you, but there was no way around it. Don’t judge me.

But you know what, you can’t deny it and say Pillsbury biscuits, baked until golden perfection, are bad. You would be lying if you did! I do make homemade biscuits, just didn’t feel like it that morning. I opened the can of biscuits (actually I made Kyle do it, I hate how the package bursts open, it scares me) and I made the gravy in less than 15 minutes. Set the coffee on brew, and breakfast is served!

  • In a heavy saucepan turn heat to high and combine sugar and milk. Sift in flour and cocoa and whisk until smooth.
  • Whisk constantly with mixture on medium high heat. It will boil and thicken like gravy, around 5 – 10 minutes.
  • When sauce is thick turn the heat off and add butter, cinnamon and salt. Whisk until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately over biscuits. (The sauce would be great with pancakes and waffles also. )



This was such a delicious and delectable breakfast. Kyle was skeptical at first, but after one bite he was in love. He compared the taste to a chocolate donut, with the buttery dough and smooth, hardly sweet chocolate. Though chocolate gravy isn’t as common as it once was, it’s growing in popularity in my home. And hopefully yours soon!
