recipe {biscuits & chocolate gravy}

growing up a special treat for breakfast would be homemade biscuits and chocolate gravy.  yes, you heard me, chocolate gravy!  it is so yummy if you have never had it before.  so what did a snowy saturday morning call for this past weekend?  yup, biscuits and chocolate gravy!  this is one of my mom's recipes for homemade biscuits.  i like it b/c i don't have to roll the dough out....

baking powder drop biscuits
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup milk

mix dry ingredients together.  cut shortenin into dry ingredients until it looks like course crumbs {i used my kitchenaid mixer and just let it mix for a few seconds}.  make a well in the center; add milk all at once.  stir with fork {mix} quickly until dough follows fork {mixer} around bowl.  drop from teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheet.  bake at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes until light golden.

if you want the pretty cut-out biscuits you simply cut the milk to 3/4 cup milk, mix and then roll dough 1/2" thick and cut into circles....i prefer mine more...."organic" in nature! =)


chocolate gravy
1 cup & 4 tbsp water
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch

bring water to a boil.  mix dry ingredients together and add to boiling water.  wisk/stir and let cook for another minute or two until it thickens a bit.

serve over warm biscuits with butter! 
the chocolate gravy can also double as a homemade fudge sauce for a quick sundae.
