Along with snow days and kids out of school, came the sleep overs.
I love finding something fun and delicious to cook for the kids in the morning, and when I mentioned this recipe for Chocolate Gravy, everyone was super excited. My daughter remembered fondly they had served something similar at the summer camp she had attended. The kids smothered fresh baked biscuits in it, and also used it to top the pancakes I made.
1 cup sugar
4 1/2 tablespoons flour
4 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
1 to 1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 stick butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix sugar, flour and cocoa together in a skillet or saucepan. Slowly add water while whisking. Next, add the milk while whisking. Heat on medium high until bubbly. Simmer for several minutes until mixture thickens to gravy. Stir continually. Add the butter and vanilla. Serve with biscuits.
