If you are from the south then you already know the goodness that this chocolate gravy recipe brings to the table. It is an indulgence for sure, and it is a popular southern staple. Down here in the south we love people through food! And there is no better way to say “I love you” to your family in the mornings than to serve up a plate of hot breakfast that includes chocolate gravy.
Chocolate gravy is like a warm chocolate sauce that closely resembles a thinner version of homemade chocolate pudding. I’m not going to lie. There is absolutely nothing healthy about this recipe, but it is so delicious when you want to indulge. Many southern families will serve this on special occasions, or even make it into a family tradition such as serving it for breakfast every Christmas morning.
This chocolate gravy recipe is so versatile, you can eat it on almost anything. We love to eat chocolate gravy on top of my homemade sourdough biscuits, but it is also delicious on sourdough pancakes or sourdough waffles. I have even heard of people using chocolate gravy as an icing for a simple sheet cake, but I don’t want to call my icing gravy. HAHA
