I have memories as a child – and teenager – of one of my best friend’s dads making chocolate gravy. The man was a master in the kitchen. Although he was a farmer by trade.

He spoiled us rotten – especially with food. What teenager doesn’t have food as a top love language?

Heck, I still do.

I haven’t had his-type of chocolate gravy in years – since I was diagnosed with Celiac. Until recently.

I was introduced to a new (tweaked) recipe for chocolate gravy, using only gluten-free ingredients.

I’m not a huge fan of sweets first thing in the morning, for breakfast. I’m the girl who will eat pancakes or waffles sans syrup. But y’all. This recipe. It’s a whole ‘nother story.

Chocolate Gravy Gluten Free Recipe

This is what you use ::

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

This is what you do ::

Combine the first four ingredients and bring to boil, whisking constantly. Mixture should boil for 2-3 minutes. Lower heat and add vanilla as you continue to whisk. Remove from heat and serve immediately.


I would have thought that without flour, this mixture would have been like chocolate water. I was wrong. The consistency was just-right.

If you are a fan of peanut butter. Or namely peanut butter and chocolate, then I suggest making a double batch.

Bring the “extra” back to a boil and add 2T of creamy peanut butter. Whisk until it is melted thoroughly and voila! A peanut butter-chocolate icing – ready to pour over your favorite cake.

Biscuits and chocolate gravy are a huge hit around here – and with this recipe, easy-peasy.
It’s not one of those meals you have to save for the weekends – it’s quick and delicious. And a big hit with kids (of all ages)!
