Gilliland Family Chocolate Sauce

When Mark and I first started dating, I thought his family had one huge thing that made them weird. They liked to eat chocolate sauce ON BISCUITS!!!! Now, I like chocolate as much as the next girl. {Maybe more than some!} The thought of ruining perfectly good chocolate by putting it on a biscuit just seemed wrong. Not quite as wrong as chocolate covered bugs or raisins, but still wrong. When I told my grandparents about it my grandfather said, “Them Gillilands are some weird people.” So finally, after a few years of finagling, I tried them one Sunday after church. Biscuits with chocolate are delicious!!! I had no idea what I had been missing all those years. So now, I make them for my own little Gillilands. This is one thing that we do NOT have to coax Benjamin into eating. He loves chocolate and biscuits. It is very easy to make.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of Hershey’s Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 stick of butter

Put the milk, sugar and cocoa in a heavy sauce pan over medium high heat. Stir constantly until it starts to boil. Add the butter. Turn the heat down to low and stir occasionally until it reaches desired thickness. Serve over piping hot biscuits.

We each have our own ways of eating them.

Mark and the boys like to cut their biscuits into little pieces and pour the chocolate over them.

I prefer to cut my biscuit in half and pour the chocolate over.

Benjamin was very excited to have one of his favorite meals tonight!!!
