Cocoa Gravy

Today I learned something I think is pretty neat. I learned that Cocoa Gravy is authentic to Arkansas, or originated there! How true that is, I’m not sure, but I like the idea!

You see, growing up as a kid (in Arkansas), my Mom would make us Cocoa Gravy every now and again on a Saturday or Sunday. Oh Heavens.

This sweet, sugary, chocolate gravy over fluffy biscuits is something right out of my childhood. It takes me back to simple times, sitting at the table with my Dad and sister, swirling a bite of biscuit through a river of chocolate sugar and butter.

This simple recipe is one that was made so often, was such a staple to our household, that I’m frankly surprised that its taken me all this time to finally get my hands on the recipe. {Queue amazing sister to the rescue!} The moment I mentioned wanting the recipe, my sis was sending it to me.

And not an hour later..I was DEVOURING a plate full. Its possible I’m feeling a little like Miss Piggy at the moment, but the impact of Cocoa Gravy just like Mom’s made it worth EVERY BITE.
