CHOCOLATE GRAVY WITH BISCUITS — This sweet twist on biscuits and gravy makes a wonderful indulgent breakfast or simple dessert, served with fresh berries and your favorite biscuits.
My oldest son recently served a church service mission in the South, and since coming home, he’s introduced me to all kinds of new and delicious dishes, like Chocolate Gravy with Biscuits.
If you’re thinking that sounds weird, that’s what I thought at first too. But then I thought about it a little more. It’s really not that different than strawberry shortcake, or waffles with whipped cream and strawberries.
The biscuits are simply a vehicle for fresh berries and decadent chocolate sauce. Which makes it hard to decide if this should be served for breakfast or dessert. I say both!
And although I’d never heard of this brilliant idea until my son came home, it seems that biscuits and chocolate gravy are a thing in certain parts of the South.
You can make up your own homemade biscuits, and even add a little extra sugar to the dough, which is especially good if you’re serving this for dessert.
For breakfast, which is usually when we enjoy our chocolate gravy, I don’t like my biscuits too sweet, and in the interest of time, I often use store bought biscuits.
In my opinion, the fresh berries are absolutely a must! Strawberries are my favorite, but raspberries would work great too, or even an assortment of fresh berries. It reminds me of chocolate covered strawberries. Which is basically what it is–with the added bonus of a flaky biscuit.
I certainly would not complain if my boys decided to serve me Chocolate Gravy with Biscuits for Mother’s Day. If you’re still skeptical, I was too, but I’m here to tell you that this decadent dish was absolutely amazing. Try it. You won’t regret it!
