chocolate gravy

Last week was a bit of a doozy. It started out with a work trip for me

and a vet trip for Harrison.

By mid-week I had come down with a killer cold and Harrison was sporting what appeared to be a Snookie-esque boot

Luckily I was feeling better by Saturday, when Moose and I enjoyed a ride through traffic

to his happy place.

Today all I want is a giant blanket, a nap, some kitteh snuggles and this chocolate gravy. Yeah I really just said that. Chocolate gravy.

Chocolate Gravy
Recipe adapted from The Homesick Texan
Makes approximately 12 ounces of gravy
Printable recipe


  • 3/4 cup vegan refined sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups vanilla soy milk*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread
*I’ve only used soy milk for this recipe so I can’t say for certain that all non-dairy milks will work as well.

This gravy is simple to make and it gives you an excuse to pour chocolate over top of every food on your plate, during every meal, every single day.

First gather all of your dry ingredients

and whisk them together in a saucepan

Add in the milk and cook over medium heat, stirring very frequently until the mixture bubbles and thickens. It should take 10-15 minutes. Don’t overheat the gravy, but if it’s not bubbling after 8 minutes, turn the heat up just a bit. Stir in the vanilla and the Earth Balance and remove the saucepan from the heat. Let the gravy sit and thicken for another 3-5 minutes without stirring, then eat up!

Comfort food, meet my belly.

    • It’s a vegan “butter” made with natural oils, but if you’re not vegan you can just use plain old butter. The original recipe calls for butter and I bet it tastes great.

  1. It turned out very thick. I really don’t like it as gravy; when served cold, it makes delicious pudding.
