So you’ve heard of chocolate gravy, right?
It’s basically a chocolate sauce made from cocoa and sugar, cooked in a skillet like gravy. Serve it over biscuits (or just about anything.)
My version contains two of my favorite flavors, coffee and cinnamon.
Coffee, chocolate, and cinnamon is a flavor combo that I am very, very fond of. Like, I loooove this combo.
This would be perfect for a lazy Saturday morning brunch.
Here are my notes:
–Whisking is the key to making this easy sauce. Keep whisking!
–If it get’s too thick, just add more milk or you can even thin with water.
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1½ cups whole milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon instant coffee granules
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Hot buttered biscuits, French toast, or pancakes, for serving
- Mix the sugar, cocoa powder and flour together in a medium bowl until there are no lumps. Slowly whisk in the milk and stir well to combine.
- Melt the butter over medium-high heat in large skillet. Slowly add the flour mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in the cinnamon and coffee granules and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until bubbles form around edge and gravy thickens. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla. Serve warm over hot buttered biscuits, French toast or pancakes.
- *If gravy is too thick, whisk in 1-2 tablespoons of milk.
