Serving Up {Breakfast}: Chocolate Gravy for biscuits

This is a recipe from my teenage years.  I grew up with two brothers with awesome metabolisms that could eat ANYTHING and that is pretty much what they did.  I on the other hand...

Breakfast is one of those funny meals when you really stop to think about it.  We serve cinnamon rolls and coffee cake and donuts and crepes and then top it all off with juice.  It's like a morning dessert bar!  This recipe falls right in line with that train of thought.  Bake up some buttery, flaky biscuits and then drench them in chocolate gravy.  Delicious?  Yes!  Power meal?  No!  That is why I make sure to serve it with a side of eggs - oh, and of course some fruit that we use to wipe up any remaining gravy that may have been left on the plate once the biscuits were gone.

CHOCOLATE GRAVY (for biscuits)     Pin It
(recipe from Linda W.)
printable version

2 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
pinch salt
1 can (12-ounce) evaporated milk
1 1/2  cup water (I fill the milk can with water)
3 cups milk
1-2 Tbs. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cocoa and salt. Whisk the dry ingredients together until well smooth and well combined.

Combine evaporated milk, water and milk and pour over the dry ingredients. Heat over medium heat and stir occasionally with a spoon (do not use a whisk as it adds too much air), ensuring the mixture doesn’t burn on the bottom. Heat until mixture boils.
Once mixture boils, remove from heat and add butter and vanilla and stir well.

Serve over fresh, warm biscuits.
Also delicious to as a for dip strawberries or bananas.
