Chocolate Gravy — Yes, Chocolate Gravy!


You may have thought you knew Southern food, but unless you’ve had chocolate gravy, you really are just a dilletante — which is what I was until I lost my chocolate gravy virginity this morning.  For some reason, the gospel of the almight chocolate sauce has not been preached from the Appalachian mountaintops.  I’m fairly well-read on Southern food, but until earlier this week, when I was reading the New Encylcopedia of Southern Culture’s volume on Foodways, I read a description of a type of “gravy” common in the Appalachian regions of the South.  This flour-thickened sauce is typically served with biscuits for breakfast. According to the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America, there are several legends regarding the origin chocolate gravy:”Spanish Louisiana had a trading network in to the Tennessee valley. This trade may have introduced Mexican-style breakfast chocolate to the Appalachians, where it is called ‘chocolate gravy.’ (Another possibility is that the very old population of mixed-race Appalachian Melungeons has preserved the dish from the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spanish colonies on the East Coast.)”

Of course, I had to thoroughly research this sauce. Is it a mole? Is it sweet or savory? Is it just for breakfast? I had lots of questions, and fortunately, chocolate gravy isn’t as uncommon as I would have thought. Search the internet, and you’ll finds hundreds, or even thousands of entries on chocolate gravy. I was getting depressed, as I really didn’t know how I could manage to live 44 years without ever having tried this Southern specialty.

After looking at a bunch of recipes, I decided I needed to choose one that looked right to me. And then I realized, this is just a bechamel with cocoa powder and sugar added. Once I realized that, it was a piece of cake to make the stuff. Melt some butter, add flour, cocoa powder and sugar. Slowly add some milk — just like you might make a meat-based gravy. Finish with vanilla. Wow, it was good and will be a staple at our breakfast table for years to come.

Recipe after the break.

Chocolate Gravy

5 Tbsp unsalted butter

3 Tbsp flour

3 Tbsp cocoa powder

4 Tbsp sugar

1 cup milk

1-1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt butter in skillet.  Stir in flour, cocoa powder and sugar and continue to cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes.  Slowly add the milk a bit at a time, making sure to incorporate it fully.  Once all the milk has been added, cook for another 2 minutes, until thick.  Add vanilla off heat.  Serve over biscuits, toast or if you really want to be decadent, toasted pound cake. Some people even serve it over eggs, but I’m not quite ready for that yet.

    Chocolate — it’s not just for breakfast anymore, And for god’s sake, crumble up some bacon or something and put in there, ok? That’s after you substitute in bacon fat for the butter.

    Hope that helps. 🙂

  2. Varmint says:

    Being a chocolate gravy neophyte, I wanted to start gently. Bacon fat next go around, perhaps!

    Bacon sweets 4eva! 😉

    Or heck, use some pecans. I guess after a while one might as well just make a cake though.

    OMG. I love all things choc!

  8. winston says:

    The exact stuff that my Dad used to make after Sunday dinner. I never thought of this as a breakfast food, but as a way to use the biscuits for dessert – very much the same way we’d use Karo Syrup and butter. Of course, the chocolate gravy was better.

  9. Jennifer says:

    I am a southern girl and I love chocolate gravy it is the best stuff ever. I always tell my friends about it and they look at me like I’m crazy but once they try it they love it.

  11. kizil says:

    I grew up in the mountains of NC and ate chocolate gravy when I went to my granny’s houses — they always tore the biscuits up into pieces before putting the gravy on top, it was easier for us kids to eat — maybe it made less mess for them? Anyway, it’s a fond memory, along with fried apple pies.

  12. Karli says:

    Haha, My mom bakes chocolate gravy every saturday. It is the best out there, most people think ‘chocolate gravy?? ew!’ but you don’t live until you try chocolate gravy.

  13. Morbious Fod says:

    I’ve been living in the backwoods of Southwest Virginia ever since I was three years old, and my grandmother would make chocolate gravy for the grand kids every time we came to visit. We didn’t put it on biscuits, but on the white flower pan bread that she would bake. It was great stuff.

    I mention Chocolate gravy to others in the outlying areas of Southwest Virginia, say in Abingdon or Bristol, VA, and I keep getting the strangest looks. You’d think that they would know about it as well being that they aren’t that far away from the backwoods, but they don’t. Of course most of the people I have asked were at least five years younger than myself, so maybe their grandmothers just never made it.

    The looks you get you’d think I suggested eating possum. LOL!

  14. James Rogers says:

    Yes in high school me and my buddy would hang out maybe stay out all night then got to his house and eat breakfast, one morning he made biscuits and chocolate gravy oh man it was good!!! Now every time i ask some one if they tryed it they say no and say nasty but they have never tryed it. Well i guess not a lot of people have tryed chocolate gravy down here in GA….. To bad and i thank it tastes a hole lot better then just chocolate alone!!!

  15. Beth says:

    I just heard of this and this is how I used it. I made french toast with cinnamon bread and then covered it with chocolate gravy. SO DELICIOUS!

  16. Summer Mueller says:

    I grew up in northern Mississippi and my Mother and Grandmother made this as far as my memory goes as have I made it for my kids and Grandkids. We mostly had it on plain white or yellow cake as a sauce.I had not heard it called chocolate gravy until many years later after moving to Alaska. I’d eat that stuff on shoe leather it’s so good.

  17. Big Tony J says:

    I am 31 yrs old and been eatin chocolate gravy and bisquits since I was a lil kid. We just called it a country thang, lol.

  18. Chuck Baux says:

    Barbaric. Anyone who knows me will tell you chocolate before noon is barbarous. Period. That is it. Look @ what joe, brockbrake and winston say. I have to bail. You give me the heebee jebees just thinking about it

  19. Kacie D says:

    I live in southern illinois we have this on pancakes. My mom always made it and said says she remembers har grandma making it for breakfast when she was little. We have always just called it chocolate syrup though, I guess somewhere along it got changed in our family because we eat it on pancakes. Homemade biscuits aren’t really a thing in our family, I guess we aren’t southern enough.

    I was raised on this stuff my Grandmother use to make it for us kids all the time now 4 generations down the road my daughter makes it for her boys too.

  31. Kristy says:

    I used to make mine the same way you listed above: as a white sauce with cocoa and sugar added at the end. Then I watched my German grandmother (who learned from her Okie MIL) make it one morning. I was making it totally backwards! It is supposed to be dry ingredients mixed together, then add the milk, and stir until thick, then add vanilla and butter/margarine at the end. And if you use unsalted butter/margarine, then you have to add a dash or two of salt. These are the rules, and you cannot argue with a German grandmother!

  33. Peggy Burns says:

    I grew up in New Mexico and was raised on this. I raised 4 boys on it and now 6 grandchildren. People do think you are crazy when you talk about it, but after they eat it they are your best friend. We split the biscuits in half and put butter on them. YUM………….

  34. Clarissa says:

    I was raised on this. It is best when poured over hot buttered biscuits. Then you take fresh crispy bacon and crumble it on top!!! It is amazing!

  41. Megan Barker says:

    Yum yum! We didn’t have any biscuits so we poured it over cinnamon rolls. Delicious!

  42. Beda says:

    I grew up eating this; you break the biscuits into bite-sized pieces, crumble in either bacon or sausage, spoon the chocolate over it, and then stir it all together. My mother didn’t put vanilla in hers. Agree with another poster that you mixed the dry ingredients, then added the milk, stir until thickened, and then add a hunk of unsalted butter at the end. My maiden name is Davis and my ancestors are from Alabama and North Carolina. I don’t know of a single person outside of my family who ate this. Glad to hear that so many others ate it.

    I was raised on Chocolate Gravy and homemade biscuits for breakfast and sometimes as dessert for dinner its a Kentucky thing too Momma made it for us, I made it for my kids and my Son’s wife had never heard of it so he made it and his kids love it, nothing better than buttered biscuits with chocolate gravy

  44. My mother made it while I was growing up and we called it chocolate sop. I started making it for my kids when they were small and they loved it. They are all grown now but look forward to having it when they all come home. We always had flour bread with our chocolate sop. It don’t get any better than that!!

    This was a staple growing up. My grandma would also make chocolate pudding and add leftover pieced up biscuits from the morning. I miss my grandma. Sure was eatin’ my sweet bread.

  47. sharon says:

    Chocolate gravy, home made biscuits and a streak of lean and a streak of fat. That was our favorite supper!!

  48. Carol says:

    My mom used to make something very similar, but it didn’t have flour in it. You mixed the dry ingredients and mixed in the milk and cooked it till it started to thicken, then added the butter and vanilla. It was more like underdone fudge and was such a treat over pancakes or waffles.

  52. Wade Hawk says:

    I have been eating Chocolate Gravy for Forty something years, so believe me, I know about this meal. I am from Tennessee btw, where this stuff was invented, and I don’t know what the Author here is talking about with the Mexican/Melungeon stuff. This was invented by white people I think. Listen people, there is only one way to eat this stuff, and that is crumble up your biscuits, and spread gravy over those, then add butter on top of the gravy and move it around on top. Until you eat it that way, you have not had chocolate gravy yet. You must use actual homemade biscuits too, not some pre prepared canned crap. I never heard of adding bacon, and why would someone do that? Nasty. The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America does not know what they are talking about. Those Yankee’s should just stick to what they know, and believe me, it is not Southern anything. Anybody can write a book and guess at something, and that is what happened here. This dish was invented in Tennessee by Southern people, not some Mexican, and not some Melungeon. We didn’t even have Mexicans , in this area back when I was a kid. My Grandmother was making chocolate gravy before I was born. As for Melungeon’s Yea we got those, but it is mostly a very small amount centered around the Sneedville area of Tennessee. I know a few of them, I had one in my squad back when I was in the guard.

  57. Cheryl says:

    This is really funny, in the 50’s we would visit grandma and grandpa in Kentucky and she made her own butter. She would make chocolate gravy and cathead biscuits. Don’t ask, that is just what they called them, I guess because she never used a biscuit cutter, they apparently didn’t make them big enough. Now we live in California and people out here turn their nose up at it. To bad for them, they don’t know what they are missing.

  58. April says:

    I live in rural Western NC, and my Mama used to make chocolate gravy and pancakes. We used the gravy instead of syrup.

  59. My grandmother used to make this for us every year for the first day of school. A tradition I took over with my boys and their friends. My baby is a senior this year, so I am looking forward to grandbabies sometime in the future in order to make this wonderful stuff!!!

  60. […] a delicious recipe for this decadent breakfast sauce.  You can find the original recipe here:  I, however, didn’t use the actual recipe from the site.  Some previous pinner had quoted […]

  61. Nancy says:

    I live in north Alabama and in 68 years old. My mother, grandmother and great-grandmother made chocolate gravy that was passed down from their mothers. Where it started doesn’t matter as long as we pass it down to our children. My daughter makes it for her daughter and hopefully she will make it and pass it down. I agree with others the correct way is to start with the dry ingredients and then add the milk or water if you like it more of a syrup (or run out of milk) and butter and vanilla.

  62. Stephanie says:

    I have been eating this stuff since I was a little girl, I’m 36 now. My family is from Louisiana & my maw maw would make it & then her children made it & now we are making it for our kids. We use pet milk, butter, sugar, cocoa powder& peanut butter and we dip white bread in it. It is delicious.

    If my grandmother were alive today, she would be 138 years old…..yes, I am not young either….giggle. Her mother made this for her when she was a little girl in Texas, and she made it for her children (my mom), who is 93. My mom made it for me and I have made it for my children and grandchildren. It is a family tradition to have for special family get togethers!!!

  64. Brenda Horn says:

    Living my entire life in Central Kentucky with parents and grandparents from southern Kentucky/Tennessee area, chocolate gravy was a staple around our house. I am like some other bloggers, I don’t believe this to be anything other than an Appalachian recipe that migrated during the depression of the 20’s. However, my family’s recipe is a little different, mixing the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt and add to boiling water with a teaspoon of vanilla at the end. Pour over cat head biscuits and top with butter. I am 51 and my mother made chocolate gravy and biscuits every day of my life while living at home.

  65. Faye Locke says:

    I was born in Mule Shoe Texas, and I have ate chocolate gravy for the last 64yrs and until a year ago never knew it was made with milk my Gradma Qmia made it with water, I try it the other day and it was good but it was more like pudding than gravy ,so I’ll stick to my grannys recipe which is the same except you use cup water

  66. Joan says:

    I was born and raised in south Georgia, married and moved to eastern North Carilina and I will be 61 in June and have NEVER heard of chocolate gravy. Guess I will have to make a batch next time the grandkids come for a visit.

  67. Kristy M. says:

    Water is a totally acceptable substitute for milk. I think this is a depression era food, so if you didn’t have your own milker, it would be made with water.

  68. Vanessa says:

    I had chocolate gravy every morning when I was growing up. The only difference my mama didn’t use flour in her recipe. I still make it for my daughter who is 24 yrs old now. My Uncle (R.I.P.) lived in Michigan and when he would come to our house, mama would always make him some homemade biscuits and “Cocoa” as we called it.

    My Aunt Lexie made this when we visited Ohio all the time it was the best stuff. I make it for my family too .

    I am 62 years old, my mother is 89 and my Grandmother would be about 130 years old. I’m an Arkansan and grew up on Chocolate Gravy. We have at least five generation of Chocolate Gravy lovers, which would extend back to the Great Depression. We break up homemade biscuits and eat it like a bread pudding for breakfast. I am a school teacher and every year make all my students a southen breakfast including Chocolate Gravy, grits and homemade Apple Butter. They love it!

    My Mamma makes chocolate rolls, which is leftover biscuit dough, rolled out sprinkled with cocoa and sugar, dotted with butter, rolled up and sliced like cinnamon rolls. The trick is to pour hot water or your rolls (and a little milk – if you want your “gravy” creamier or have it) and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until top is crispy and sauce bubbly. My Yankee brother-in-laws request this versus a homemade cake. Never had a friend over as a kid who didn’t still ask for what my Mamma calls Chocolate Rolls. For all you that understand a dumpling is best made from leftover dough, you will understand! God bless those moms who were ever so creative and cooked biscuits daily!

    We had this as kids, but we called it cocoa gravy. For years I met no one outside of our family who knew what it was. I searched for years on the internet for the recipe to no avail. Little by little recipes started popping up. I finally figured out that the geographic origin was somewhere in northeastern Tennessee or southeastern Kentucky. Sooner or later I found what is claimed to be the root. It is rumored that a group of people called Melungeons first introduced this delight to the other white settlers, or maybe the other way around. Either way, the geography is accurate and I can say it was invented by an American frontier family.

    You can bet your bottom dollar that if this is a family tradition, someone in your family passed through this area and stayed for a while to learn it from the other hill folk. My genealogical background is a large group Missouri ‘hillbillies’ who moved from the original area mostly in the early 1830s-1850s to escape the forced migration of the Cherokee indians, issues of slavery, and the revenuers. Many of the family members ended up in Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, NC, Mississippi, southern IL, OH, & IN, and even Iowa. It took a lot of Googling and a lot of Ancestry and other genealogy sites to figure this much out.

    BTW, the original recipe is not to make a roux, as mentioned before, but to mix all the dry ingredients, add the milk until thick, and then add the butter.

    Now I’m looking for what my Grandma Bessie called vinegar gravy, and I think I found the source in verjus.

    I found it on this channel which is VERY entertaining.
