1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon self-rising flour
1 tablespoon cocoa
1-1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon butter
In a medium saucepan, combine dry ingredients. Add water and stir. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally — remember to stir down the side and bottom of the saucepan.
The gravy will become thick, at this point remove from heat and add the butter.
Serve warm over biscuits.
Tip if not serving right away: As with any gravy, place plastic wrap over the top of gravy. Make sure that it makes contact and you won’t find the skin that will appear if air touches it.
