Chocolate gravy over biscuits

A southern tradition, biscuits and gravy, usually white gravy with sausage bits, but for a delicious festive twist , chocolate gravy over biscuits or pancakes. Try it and let me know if your family enjoyed it!

Southern Chocolate Gravy

3/4 to 1 cup - granulated sugar (if you want it less sweet use 3/4 cup)
2 - 3 tablespoons flour
1 - heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 - cups milk
1 - tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 - teaspoon vanilla extract

Add all the dry ingredients to a medium sized pot. Add the milk, using a whisk combine the dry ingredients with the milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and stir constantly to prevent the mixture from scorching.

The mixture will start thicken up. When it thickens remove from heat and add the butter and the vanilla extract. Pour over biscuits.

* If by chance your gravy is not at the consistency that you want. You can mix a bit of flour and milk together and add it to the boiling chocolate to thicken as much as you like. Some people like their chocolate gravy a bit thin and some a bit thicker. I think it will be just right if you use the about 3 tablespoons flour.

Stunning chandelier decorating ideas

Chandeliers not only provide light in any room in the house they also provide a romantic feel to a room. there are many types of chandeliers but my favorites are still crystal chandeliers.  Crystal Chandeliers adds an air of elegance to a room, a bedroom, bathroom, nursery, kitchen. They provide a dramatic focal point to most decor as well.

Where would you put a crystal chandelier?  Do you feel they bring an air of romance to a room? Comments welcomed.
