Chocolate Gravy, An Arkansas Tradition

Although I was born in Arkansas, I lived in the south for only a few "growing up" years. When we moved to Arkansas to build the inn, we soon heard about the southern dish of Chocolate Gravy. In my mind, chocolate and gravy just don't go together, but our daughters regaled the virtues of this sauce. They love biscuits with chocolate gravy on a lazy Saturday morning. So here's a true southern delight: Chocolate Gravy. Ladle over your favorite biscuits, homemade or store bought, and enjoy.

Chocolate Gravy is a nice addition to breakfast on Chocolate Covered Wednesdays, featured every Wednesday at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn.


1 stick butter
4 Tablespoons cocoa
4 Tablespoons flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk


Melt butter. Stir in cocoa and flour, then add sugar and milk and whisk. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring often. Serve over hot biscuits. Serves 6.
