Top Your Biscuits With Grandma’s Old-Fashioned Chocolate Gravy

By  |  88 Comments

For more than 30 years, Henderson County Farm Bureau member Gail Hunley Horine and her family have been perfecting their old-fashioned chocolate gravy recipe in Lexington, Tennessee.

What started as a hobby of selling chocolate gravy mix to friends and family back in 1986 grew into a family business to meet the increasing demand. Today, Grandma’s Old Fashioned Chocolate Gravy Mix is available to purchase online and at various retailers across West Tennessee.

Traditionally served over warm, homemade biscuits, chocolate gravy makes the perfect topping for pancakes, waffles, ice cream and more. Try just one taste and you’ll know why this true Southern tradition has been a family favorite for generations.
