Chocolate Gravy, dont worry, its a country thing.

If you grew up in eastern Oklahoma, north Texas, western Arkansas and I can't speak for anywhere else, you might be familiar with chocolate gravy. No, its not made with grease or drippings. Its similar to a warm liquidy chocolate pudding, made to be eaten over hot buttered biscuits for breakfast. Growing up, this was a birthday treat, Christmas breakfast or just something mom did to make you feel special. I also cook up some homemade sausage patties to go along with. Don't knock til you try it! But again, its a country thing!
