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, I tear my biscuit up in a bowl first and then pour the gravy all over it .If you want to be really evil, butter your biscuits first and then pour on the gravy. Oh Lord that is so sinful but good.

* 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.
