How to Make Chocolate Gravy

Recipe Tips

  • Thinner Sauce – If you prefer a thinner sauce, add in more milk.
  • Thicker Sauce – As the ingredients are combined in the saucepan it will thicken. If it doesn’t thicken, you may need to add in more flour. You may even need to make a cornstarch slurry with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Cooking the Gravy – Once the gravy mixture is placed in the saucepan, continue to stir until the gravy thickens. This will ensure that the mixture does not burn. This gravy is best served warm.

Serving Suggestions

This chocolate gravy can also be served as a dessert. But typically we love it over hot buttermilk biscuits, pancakes, and Cinnamon French Toast.

If you prefer to serve it as a dessert, it is delicious over ice cream or pound cake. I grew up eating this chocolate gravy and now I share it with my family for a delicious classic recipe.
