Been eating chocolate gravy since I was a youngun. But we use corn starch instead of flour. Gives it a better taste without the flour taste.

I grew up on this delicious stuff. We called it in kids terms “Doodle-up Chocolate’. Where we got that word, don’t know.
It’s delicious served hot over a buttered biscuit on a cold winter evening for a snack.

2. Whisk together the sugar, cocoa, and flour in a bowl; add to the melted butter; whisk.

You don’t know what you are missing…..choc gravy on a warm biscuit in the morning is one my whole family loves, not just immediate family either. Try it sometime I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Chili recipe sounds great. If you have not tried chocolate in your chili you are missing out. Just make sure to use bittersweet or unsweetened. Look up some mole chicken or turkey recipes. You’ll love it.

My company had a chili contest. I made my cowboy chili, which calls for the “secret” ingredient as “dark cocoa” powder. My chili went immediately, everyone was saying, “there’s just something different” and it “tastes so good, what did you put in it?” When I told them and gave the recipe out – they were all surprised. So, try it before you judge it, and you might find yourself smiling at a pleasant surprised for your taste buds.

I love chocolate too farmerellen, but……………much as I love to try new foodie things I’m not brave enough to give these recipes a go either.
I have tried chocolate in chili before and all I could tast was ………chocolate. Be very interesting to see how others get on. Good luck.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
