Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits Recipe



  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tbsp Softened Butter


  1. Prepare the Chocolate Gravy Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa, flour, and milk until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps.
  2. Cook the Chocolate Gravy:
    • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and place it on medium-high heat.
    • Stir the mixture frequently to prevent any lumps from forming.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Simmer and Thicken:
    • Once it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to medium.
    • Continue to stir frequently for about 5 minutes or until the chocolate gravy reaches your desired thickness.
    • Keep in mind that it will thicken a bit more as it cools, so it’s okay if it’s a little runnier than regular gravy.
  4. Add Vanilla and Butter:
    • Remove the saucepan from heat.
    • Stir in the vanilla and softened butter until well incorporated.
  5. Serve:
    • Pour the chocolate gravy over warm, freshly baked biscuits.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Serve the biscuits with a generous drizzle of chocolate gravy and savor the deliciousness!

Note: Feel free to adjust the thickness of the chocolate gravy according to your preference by adding more milk or letting it simmer a bit longer.
