Sweet & Spicy Chocolate Gravy

20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)

Chocolate gravy? Well in all my born days! We’ve all slathered our pancakes with sweet maple syrup, smeared our toast with Nutella, and peanut-buttered-and-jellied our bread, right? Well then there’s no reason why you have not chocolafied your gravy! If it sounds too weird, think of it like hot pudding, or a sweet Béchamel sauce – all gone cuckoo for cocoa. I promise you, tasting homemade chocolate gravy may bring you one step closer to gravy utopia. Chocolate gravy is a nearly forgotten southern tradition believed to have originated in the homes of the Appalachian Mountains and Deep South, and perhaps even as old as the 16th-17th century. I've created this spicy rendition by studying many coveted chocolate gravy family recipes and added a little 'kick'. Perfect for a cold winter morning, a family breakfast, or a quick wake-up call accompanied by a nice cup of hot coffee or tea.
