Sugar Biscuits & Chocolate ‘Gravy’!

I’m not from the South, but sometimes I feel like I should’ve been!  Actually, it’s probably best that I’m not because I’d probably turn into a Biscuit from eating so many of them, among all of the other great Southern foods that I dream about on a daily basis!

I just can’t resist a fluffy, warm and tender Biscuit.  Especially when they’re lightly Sugared, super fluffy, doughy pillows of delight.  Ohhh, and then topped with a cascading flow of the most decadent Chocolate “Gravy” that will totally knock your socks off..and possibly other clothing items too..lol!

Change up your Dessert..Or Breakfast..Or Lunch..Or Snacks, with this simple, yet unique & elegant spin on an all-time favorite!

What you’ll need:

1 can of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits (8ct.)

1/2 cup Sugar

1/4 cup melted butter..for dipping

For the Gravy:

1 cup Sugar

2-1/2 cups Milk

1/4  cup melted butter

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

2 tbsp. Flour

3/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa

Directions:

Dip each raw Biscuit into the melted Butter and then directly into the Sugar….

Place them on a baking sheet and bake according to the package instructions…

Let them cool completely…

Make the Chocolate Gravy:  In a medium pot, slowly melt the Butter and then stir in the Sugar, Flour, Vanilla and Cocoa Powder until it’s pretty much lump-free.  Pour in the Milk and mix to combine…

Let it simmer for about 15 minutes, or until it thickens up.

Grab a couple of Sugar-Crackled Biscuits and drizzle some of the warm Chocolate Gravy onto them…

Or you can serve them up on a big platter, family style.  YES, you’ll have to share!

However you choose to eat them…you’ll be a Biscuit Rock-star!  ~Enjoy! :)

  4. My grandmother never used flour in her chocolate. That is interesting. I will never forget how she used to say, “Now hurry up and get to the table before your chocolate falls asleep.” That was her way of saying the the chocolate would harden up. ;) I miss my Grandma.

  7. Cocoa and Biscuits
    1 cup of cocoa
    2 cups of sugar
    1/3 cup flour
    1 cup milk (I use evaporated milk, makes it thicker, but you can use regular milk)
    Stir together and heat
    I use evaporated can milk but you can use whole or even 2 % but it won’t be as thick and in my opinion not has good!
    My Mom (she was from NC) used to make this for me; you dip the biscuit in the cocoa. For a chocoholic like me it doesn’t get any better.

  9. I love chocolate gravy and biscuits. My granddaddy made the best. We would start begging for ” chocolate for breakfast” the day before. I would break open my biscuit(s), pour the chocolate over them, then add a pat of butter on top of the chocolate. Another treat granddaddy would prepare for us was “tomater biscuit “. Break open a hot biscuit add a slice of “fresh from the garden” tomato and sprinkle the tomato with sugar and put the top back on as a sandwich. The taste is unbelievable. Store bought tomatoes work too although normally not as juicy.
