Directions:
Mix sugar, flour, salt and cocoa, then add milk slowly. Cook until boiling. Boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add a little hot mixture to beaten egg yolks. Then pour eggs into mixture. Return to heat 2 more minutes. Take off heat and stir in vanilla and butter...at this point, you can either use this as chocolate gravy over biscuits, or pour into a 9-inch baked pie shell and top with meringue and bake until peaks begin to brown, then refrigerate.

Personal Notes:
I thought everyone grew up with chocolate gravy...turns out that maybe just our family did. But now all the guys I work with are addicted to it and I have to make it for them every now and then.
