Web's Best Chocolate Gravy Recipe

This chocolate gravy recipe is a classic recipe from the Ozarks. Serve it over biscuits or buttered toast in a pinch, with bacon on the side.

Chocolate gravy is not really gravy at all, but a flour based sauce. It's similar to a thin chocolate pudding. Initially, people served it for breakfst but in time it started showing up for dessert as well.

Trivia: Allegedly, roast turkey with chocolate gravy was a favorite dish of the Aztecs.

Tip: Everything is better when made with good quality chocolate.

Chocolate Gravy Recipe


3 tbsp cocoa
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour

Mix the cocoa, sugar, and flour together. Add the milk, making sure it mixes smoothly. Heat (medium) and stir constantly until it thickens. This takes about 8 minutes. Take off of heat. Add butter. Stir until it is melted and mixed. Add vanilla and stir until mixed.

When this cools, it becomes chocolate pudding!
