Sometimes called chocolate gravy, this is one of my earliest food memories. I loved it when Mama made this for breakfast. Hot chocolate sauce over freshly baked homemade biscuits. Also great as a topping for ice cream too.



1 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Water
1 teaspoon Vanilla Flavoring


Place sugar in a Medium sized sauce pot.
Add the cocoa powder.
Add the salt.
Whisk all the dry ingredients together.
Add water.
Place over Medium heat on stove top.
Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil.
Continue to stir for one minute. Remove from heat.
Add the vanilla flavoring, stirring it in until fully combined.
Pour syrup over freshly baked, split biscuits.


This gravy/syrup can be used as a topping for ice cream, on pancakes and other such things. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
