Buttermilk Biscuits & Chocolate Gravy

Who loves chocolate gravy?? I don’t. Haha But everybody on the planet does. Andrew is obsessed with chocolate gravy and I have got by the past few years without having to make it for him; until now. I finally had to give in and get the recipe from his mom and ever since then we’ve had chocolate gravy every weekend. So this chocolate gravy recipe is from Andrew’s mother and the buttermilk biscuits are from my great-grandmother’s cookbooks.

 

Biscuits:
-1 cup flour
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon baking soda
-1/3 cup shortening
-1/2 cup buttermilk

In a medium bowl mix together flour, salt, baking powder, & baking soda. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Add buttermilk. Knead on floured board with flat fingers. Add balls of dough to a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

 

Chocolate Gravy:
-2 cups sugar
-2 Tablespoons flour
-2 Tablespoons cocoa
-1/2 cup milk

Add all ingredients to a pan. Heat over medium heat until just boiling. Do not over heat!
