Let’s start our biscuits by pre-heating the oven to 400 degrees and then whisking together 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of sugar…
Next cut in 1/4 cup of cold butter…
Now make a well in your flour and butter mixture and pour a 1/2 cup of sour cream…
And a 1/2 cup of milk into it. Stir all of these ingredients together with a wooden spoon just until the dough sticks together.
This dough will be a shaggy, sticky mess but don’t worry! It will come together, I promise.
Lightly kneed your dough on a floured surface until it holds it’s shape.
I decided to make square biscuits, but you might prefer to make the tradition round ones. Totally your call!
Using your hands, pat your dough out to a 1/2 inch thickness and using a very sharp biscuit cutter or pizza cutter go ahead and start to cut out your biscuits.
It’s hip to be square, don’t you think?
Pop these cuties onto a ungreased baking sheet and bake them for 12 -15 minutes or until they are golden brown.
But before we call everybody over for breakfast…
Let’s quickly whisk together 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of cocoa powder , 1/4 cup of flour and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Now, in a sauce pan melt 8 tablespoon of butter…
Then over low to medium heat slowly whisk your cocoa mixture into your melted butter.
Time to slowly whisk in 1 1/2 cups of milk to your butter and cocoa.
Whisk, whisk, whisk until your chocolate gravy is nice and smooth!
The bit of salt in the chocolate gravy helps to keep it from being too sweet and the sour cream in the biscuits give them a nice tang!
What should you do with any left over chocolate gravy? Jar it up, pop it in your fridge and I’m sure there will be a bowl of vanilla ice-cream topped with your homemade chocolate sauce in your near future!
