Southern Classic

Chocolate gravy is a Southern comfort classic. You can find it everywhere in the Southern United States!

It’s sweet, it’s chocolatey, and it’s best when poured all over warm fluffy biscuits. But you can pour it on top of almost anything your chocolate heart desires—especially things like pancakes and waffles!

This Southern recipe for chocolate gravy is basically cocoa powder, butter, sugar, milk, and a few other ingredients all mixed together and heated up over the stove.

It’s basically a super thin chocolate frosting that tastes incredible. It’s so famous in the South that even Elvis liked to eat and serve it at his home, and if the King liked it, I’m almost positive you will too. 😉

You can also make chocolate gravy ahead of time! Talk about a time saver. Just keep it in an airtight container chilled in the fridge. Heat it up over the stove before ready to pour and serve!
