How to Make Homemade Chocolate Gravy With 4 Simple Ingredients

Are you looking for a sweet and southern, breakfast comfort food? I have just the recipe!

There's always that one meal that reminds you of home. For me, it's chocolate gravy. Growing up I thought everyone knew what chocolate gravy was. I learned as I got older that it is a southern thing.

My roots are in southern Middle TN and this recipe has been a part of my life since I can remember. It's actually my grandmother's recipe and she passed it on to my dad.

On Saturday mornings, my dad would make chocolate gravy with biscuits, sausage, and bacon. It was so delicious and it's still one of my most favorite things my dad makes.

Now I get to pass on the tradition and share it with my children. Below, you'll find how to make homemade chocolate gravy with 4 simple ingredients!

It's so simple & easy. Here is what you will need:

  1. 1 Cup of sugar (I use stevia but any sugar you prefer works)

  2. 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa

  3. 2 Tablespoons of Flour

  4. 1 1/2 cup of water

(Note: This recipe amount is for 4 servings)

Step 1: Start to Prep & Mix Ingredients

First, grab a small pot and mix together these 3 dry ingredients: Add 1 cup of sugar (I use stevia but any sugar you prefer works) stir water until dissolved. Then, add 2 tablespoons of cocoa. After, add 2 tablespoons of flour. Be sure to mix well.

Step 2: Add Water

Then, stir in 1 cup of water or more. After, put on medium heat.

Step 3: Cook Until Thick (10-12 minutes)

Cook until gravy is thick which is around 10-12 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally throughout to avoid gravy getting lumpy.
