Chocolate Biscuits Recipe

I fully expected the boys to not like these and was pleasantly surprised when they did. I think the smell had a lot to do with them like these biscuits. ‘Are you making brownies for breakfast?’ they asked. 

Then they tasted and proclaimed, ‘These taste like muffins.’ 

Chocolate Biscuits do, in fact, taste like Chocolate Muffins. However, the texture is that of a biscuit. It has crusty, crispy edges and soft centers. They are really good served hot with cinnamon butter!

The ingredients are basic that you probably have in the pantry: — flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and buttermilk. As well, you will need cold butter. As well, they take about 25 minutes to make from start to finish. It’s doable any day.

    I have not tried these but want to. I am wondering. Have you ever tried to make them similar to your butter biscuits recipe? Swimming in butter and in an 8×8 casserole dish? It seems like they would be amazing like that. Please email me and let me know! Dying to find out.
