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.
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.
