My nephew, David, likes to make this fun, sweet treat ~ Home Baked Bread with 'Chocolate Gravy' ~ for his sons. A while back he mentioned it on Facebook, and he continues to tease us with photos whenever he makes it. When I asked him where he got the inspiration from, this is what he shared with me ~ I had heard about this many years ago. I looked at a few recipes online and then made my own. :)
I just love it when a certain food inspires you make it, even if it takes you years to get around to it. It just goes to show... When the timing is right, the kitchen magic happens. :) Thanks for sharing your recipe, David!
