Grandma Bean’s Chocolate Gravy Recipe is an easy, old fashioned recipe passed down through the generations from her pioneering roots of Arkansas and the Tennessee Valley. I believe that cocoa powder could be easily stored and handy for the early settlers to use, as is evident by the many recipes they created using cocoa powder.
No one knows who created the first recipe, but it is a common dish in the native Arkansan household. I have read that it might have roots to the New Orleans French, but that theory is very doubtful, as there are few French in the area and our family has no French ancestors. I would more likely think it comes from an ingenious mother who was looking for a special treat for her family.
Gravy is a very common accompaniment to the southern table and it takes many forms. Chocolate Gravy is a very special treat and it is sure to please everyone. Let us know what your family thinks of this dish!
