"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Grandma (Bessie Moody Collins) did not use measuring cups or spoons, so I have tried to get this recipe as close to her's as I can using standard measurements. It's close, but of course no one could make it like she did. Once I asked her why her chocolate gravy did not include flour like many others. She replied, "Why would I ruin good chocolate by adding flour to it?" She liked everything especially sweet and her chocolate gravy was no exception.
