Avis June's Chocolate Gravy
Recipe type: Desserts
Serves: 8
  • 4 large croissants
  • 3/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 5 1/2 Cups lowfat (1 percent) milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  1. Warm or bake croissants as necessary. Meanwhile, in a 2-quart or larger saucepan, stir together sugar, flour, cocoa powder and salt. Place pot over medium heat; gradually add milk, whisking constantly until well-blended and smooth. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low. Add butter; stir until melted and well-blended.
  3. Remove pan from heat; stir in vanilla. Cut croissants in half. Serve 1/4 cup sauce over each warm croissant half. Garnish each plate with 4 strawberries, whole or sliced.
  4. Yields 8 servings.
Fresh pineapple chunks or raspberries can be substituted for strawberries. Biscuits or crescent rolls can be used instead of croissants.

Leftover sauce may be refrigerated for a week and reheated in the microwave.
