“When I was a kid, my mom or my visiting aunt would make us a special treat during the cold winter months. It was very popular where they grew up in Southern Kentucky. It was only served to us when there was a chill in the air, and it kept us warm with a smile on our faces. Of course, her version always included homemade biscuits, but unfortunately, I never mastered that art form. Canned biscuits work for me as a substitute. We would tear off pieces of the biscuits and bury them in a hot bowl of the cocoa pudding-like mixture. Some people prefer to pour the mixture over the biscuits instead. This was not something we ate often, but the taste is still a delicious memory. The flavor combination of the warm cocoa and the buttery biscuits is reminiscent of a chocolate croissant fresh from the oven. We called it Cocoa and Biscuits, but I’ve also seen it called Chocolate Gravy. Enjoy!” – Greg Tye, Marketing Content Producer, Charles E. Boyk Law Offices.
