Chocolate Gravy....

I have thought of sharing this before and I guess that I just never did. It's cheap and we have it a lot with hot buttered biscuits. My mama and my granny fixed this growing up but the person I remember fixing it the most and the best (sorry, Mom) was Wilma(my Mom's best friend). I am missing & thinking of our Wilma(she died 4 years ago this week) so to honor her, I am posting her recipe (with some modifications made to fit the way my family likes it; but it's still basically her recipe).

4 heaping T. cocoa

4 heaping T. flour

1 c. sugar

Dash of salt

2 c. milk

1/2 stick butter (sliced into small slices)

1 t. vanilla

In medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, salt. Whisk in milk until smooth. Pour into skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken slightly. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Serve over hot buttered biscuits. Yum! Yum!!
