Today I’m sharing my recipe for Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits.  My mom used to make chocolate gravy for us when I was a kid, and it was always such a special treat! If you’ve never made it, you simply must try it out!  Also, for a little something different you may try the gravy with pancakes, pound cake, or even ice cream!

Of course, you can’t have Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits with the biscuits.  When I made these the other day, I took a shortcut and just made Bisquick biscuts.  But if you want to make them from scratch, here’s a good recipe:

Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits


For the Biscuits:

3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface

2 tablespoons sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup vegetable shortening, plus more for pan

1 cups buttermilk

1/4 cup melted unsalted butter


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the shortening with a fork until it looks like cornmeal. Add the buttermilk, a little at a time, stirring constantly until well mixed.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 2 or 3 times. Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough into circles with a 2-inch cutter.

Place the biscuits in a greased iron skillet. Gently press down the top of the biscuits. Brush the biscuits with half the melted butter and bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown. Brush the hot biscuits with the remaining butter.

Split the biscuits in half and ladle Chocolate Gravy over the hot biscuits.
