Maebelle's Chocolate Gravy

This recipe was given to me by my husband's Grandmother when we first married. It quickly became a favorite of my son's for breakfast and has always been a favorite of my husband's. We have dated this recipe back for at least 100 years as Grandmother Maebelle died Heritage Recipe for Maebelle's Chocolate Gravyat the age of 97 and the recipe was handed down to her by her Mother, Grandma Dobbins. Grandmother Maebelle had a large family to feed and this was an inexpensive way to do so during the depression.  This is the one thing when my son came home from Iraq that he wanted as soon as he could get it.
