Leslee read my last post and wondered what Cocoa Gravy was and wanted to know more about it. I thought I would share this wonderful concoction with you. Your kids will love you for it. :o)
Cocoa Gravy is something my mother has cooked for us as long as I can remember. Her mother cooked it for her (and her 10 brothers and sisiters) and I ocassionally cook it for my girls. It is like slightly thinned pie filling or pudding and just so good. I don't know where it originated but there are recipes for it in all the church cookbooks in our area. They each vary a little but the end result is the same. When I first made it for CarlyJo she called it To-To Dravy, and that is what we actually call it around our house :o)
Cocoa Gravy/Chocolate Gravy/ToTo Dravy
1/4 c. sugar
1 T cocoa
2 T flour
1 c. milk (i make mine with skim)
1T margarine or butter
Stir sugar, cocoa and flour together in a sauce pan, gradually blend in milk. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Stir in margarine. Serve over biscuits or bread.
*you can also cook it in the microwave 2 minutes at a time until thick
Let me know if you try it. I am curious if anyone else has heard of it and cooks it?
