Sometimes my best intentions for cookie and candy tray gifts fall through and I turn to ‘mixes’ for gifts. Chocolate Gravy Mix Gift is always a welcomed treat and super easy to make.
Jarred mix recipes make great gifts all year, not just for the holidays. Give them as a Housewarming gift to new neighbors, a happy treat for friends, “I’m thinking of you” gift, etc.
In the day of lavish gifts, a heartfelt homemade gift is appreciated. I have given Sand Art Brownies for years. Sand Art Brownies is a jarred gift mix that makes the best brownies. Everyone I give it to raves about how rich and decadent the brownies are. Be sure to click over and check it out.
Since I’ve given it to practically everyone I know for one reason or another, I needed to come up with a new mix. Hello Chocolate Gravy Mix Gift!
Mixes are a convenient way to give a gift, but also convenient for the recipient. Using one Chocolate Gravy Mix Gift instead of four ingredients makes breakfast super easy and fast!
Chocolate Gravy is one of my boys’ favorite breakfast recipes. I serve it over hot homemade biscuits and that’s all they want for breakfast!
This mix makes a nice, thoughtful ‘happy’ for a neighbor or friend. It ships well for out-of-town family and friends. As well, it’s a good project for younger kids to get involved with the gift-giving process!

In your recipe for Chocolate Gravy, I see 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. But in your “Chocolate Gravy Mix” Instructions I do not see when to add the vanilla. It is not mentioned. Does the vanilla go in at the very end after you take the pan off of the heat source?
I am referring to the printable instructions that are attached to the actual jar of Chocolate Gravy Mix that you are giving as a gift.
Hope you understand what I am referring to….
Yes, add the vanilla after you take it off the heat.
Where instructions can be printed the recipe called for 3 cups “butter milk (whole, 2%, 1%).” Surely the “butter milk “ part of this is a mistake. I am sure you didn’t actually mean “buttermilk.” But just any kind of regular milk, right?
You are correct! I don’t know where that ‘butter’ came from and I corrected it. Thanks for pointing that out.

I’ve never heard of chocolate gravy mix. I saw your receipt, but what do you do with it. Do you mix water or milk? Sounds good, it’s just that I’ve never heard of thst. Would be good for my great grand kids.
It’s a Southern thing, and I did not grow up eating it but my husband did. Yes, it’s mixed with milk and butter and makes a sauce that is served over biscuits.
