I love love love chocolate gravy! I grew up having it and all my friends thought it was the strangest thing. I love to tear buttered toast into my bowl and pour the gravy over it. It's also good with bacon crumbled into it.

edit:
I don't use this much sugar in mine. I'm sweet enough already. :p

This is one of my families favorite meals. I actually use water instead of milk. My mom made this when I was a kid and taught me how.

Chocolate gravy is mostly southern I believe. It is very different...imo...in taste to just syrup for icecream. It is thicker with the flour added. Its really good. I fix breakfast for supper sometimes and I fix this.
