My grandmother passed this recipe on to my mom and we had it quite often growing up. I used to fix this for my kids and it was always one of their favorites.
Think of it as a chocolate 'sauce' to put over biscuts instead of 'gravy'.
2 Tbsp. cocoa
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Bring 2 cups milk to a slow boil, stirring constantly so it doesn't scorch ~ this is a great 'job' for an older child who wants to help you in the kitchen.
Mix cocoa, sugar, flour and 1/2 cup milk in a bowl and mix well - the cocoa sits on top of the milk, so you'll need to 'beat' it a little.
Pour this mixture into the boiling milk and turn the heat down ~ stir until it thickens ~ this is another great job for an older child, as this takes a little while to thicken. It will be the consistency of a sauce instead of a gravy, so it won't get real thick.
Remove from stove and add vanilla ~ mix.
Serve over biscuts ~ enjoy!
