I love making breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day and I don't know if there is a better way to say "I love you." It is always special waking up and smelling the yumminess that awaits you. It makes waking up better, anyone who knows me, knows I do not like to wake up. It is such an awful process after a wonderful slumber, coffee helps immensely.
I have so many breakfast recipes to share with you guys, but this one was one of Ethan's favorites. It is an old Southern favorite and is a current favorite in the Barbee household. You can serve this over homemade biscuits or canned biscuits, if you are in a hurry. You can also use the leftovers for topping ice cream or waffles!

1 cup of Sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
3 tablespoons of Flour
1 1/2 cups of Whole Milk
1 tablespoon of Butter
First, in a medium bowl, whisk the sugar, cocoa, and flour together. Pour the milk in and whisk, until well combined.
Now, in a large saute pan or dutch oven, melt the butter. When the butter has melted, stir in the flour/milk mixture. Stir until the gravy has thickened, 5-10 minutes, based on preference.
Serve over biscuits.
