Gluten Free Chocolate Gravy

I was raised in the south y'all and I have many fond memories from my childhood. One of my favorite memories is eating Chocolate Gravy with my Aunt Margie and Uncle Joe. My Mom made Chocolate Gravy too but her specialty was Tomato Gravy so the Chocolate Gravy my aunt made was like no other. Right after I wrote this my Uncle Joe went home to be with the Lord. I'm going to miss him so much but have many great memories of our time together here on earth!

Some of my children came over to watch the Orange Bowl and celebrate New Years, that's a topic for another time. New Years morning I decided to serve biscuits and gravy for breakfast. My choices were regular biscuit and gluten free biscuit (I wanted to eat too), sausage gravy and my aunt's chocolate gravy gluten free style. It was a huge success, Honey said the sausage gravy was the best he had ever eaten. My daughter, the children and I loved the chocolate gravy. The chocolate was so rich and thick that it reminded me of a chocolate glazed donut.

If you like thinner gravy you may want to decrease the amount of cornstarch.

Gluten Free Chocolate Gravy                               

Yield: About 2 cups

4 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBSP cornstarch
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups whole milk
4 TBSP butter
1 TSP vanilla

In a medium sauce pan whisk together the dry ingredients.  Pour in the milk and whisk vigorously to combine.  Heat over medium-high until the mixture bubbles.  Turn heat down to medium and stir until mixture has thickened to a gravy consistency.  Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.

Let cool slightly then transfer to a gravy boat. Serve warm over buttermilk biscuits.

Thanks for stopping by y'all and please come again soon!
