Chocolate Roux Recipe

Chocolate Roux Recipe

No, there’s no chocolate in it but it’s a must for a good pot of gumbo. Chocolate Roux is used for thickening liquids and chocolate simply refers to the color of the roux. It’s also good for making gravy. Just add it to some beef stock.

Making this roux takes a little patience but is well worth the time you put into. It’s not hard to make, you just can’t rush it. This roux can be made ahead of time, divided into small containers and stored in the freezer. When you finish your first batch, try it in my Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.
