#2 – Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy

In Uncategorized on February 24, 2014 at 3:54 pm

Chocolate gravy? YES. Oh, yes. This recipe is based off a southern comfort food recipe that originated during the Depression. Originally made with water, this gravy has been upgraded with milk and the sugar, of course, switched out with date syrup. What you end up with is a creamy, complex sauce that drips over fresh biscuits like the two were made for each other. Add a couple slices of bacon and you have for yourself a breakfast legend that everyone will talk about for generations.



2 cups of milk

3/4 cup of date syrup

1/4 cup flour

1/3 cup of cocoa

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tsp vanilla

1 TBSP butter

Mix dry ingredients together in a sauce pan. Add 1/2 cup of milk and date syrup, mix well over medium heat. Add the other 1.5 cup of milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Serve over biscuits.
