These biscuits have a wonderful chocolate flavor, and the brown sugar cinnamon butter puts them over the top! You can also use the biscuits for a chocolate version of strawberry shortcakes, and the brown sugar cinnamon butter is good on bagels & toast, too! This recipe is adapted from a recipe I saw on "How Sweet it Is". Try it...you'll love it!

How to Make Chocolate Biscuits w/Brown Sugar Cinnamon Butter

Step-by-Step

  • 1Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda & salt in a large bowl.
  • 2Add the butter pieces into the mixture and use a pastry blender, fork, or two knives to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course crumbs.
  • 3Add the buttermilk and vanilla, and stir until combined. Use your hands to bring it together if need be.
  • 4Lay a piece of parchment paper (or use a pastry mat), and sprinkle it liberally with cocoa powder. Drop the dough on it and pat it down with your hands to about 1/2 thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter, and place on a nonstick cookie sheet. Bake about 12 - 15 min. (mine only take 12 min), in a preheated 425 degree oven.
  • 5While the biscuits are baking, mix 1 stick of softened butter with the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar & 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon until well mixed.
    Enjoy!
