Chocolate Gravy

I hear that Chocolate Gravy is a Southern thing and to be honest you either love it or hate it. We mostly reserve it for special occasions at my house, like Christmas morning, birthday breakfasts etc., but sometimes we have it just because. It was something that our Mom made special for us and her Mom for her, so it's a tradition for us. Everyone here, except my hubby, loves it. It may sound kind of weird, but think chocolate covered pretzels. It's kind of got that sweet and salty thing going. When my girls were little a neighbor and I would stay up late for girls nights and would sometimes have this (or cinnamon toast) as a midnight snack. I think you should try it....

Chocolate Gravy
1 c. sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa (can use more or less if desired)
2 tbsp. flour
2 c. milk (or water)

Place sugar, flour and cocoa together in pot. Stir with a fork until it's thoroughly sifted; add milk or water. On medium heat stir constantly until gravy thickens to desired consistency (It will get slightly thicker as it cools). Remove from heat and serve over a warm biscuit with a pat of butter.
