Chocolate Gravy Covered Buttermilk Biscuits – delicious southern-style, soft, and buttery buttermilk biscuits covered in a rich, velvety chocolate gravy.
I grew up in the south here in Georgia, and this is one of my favorite southern delicacies! It’s got the most delicious, fluffy biscuits that are smothered in warm chocolate gravy.
Seriously, when my boyfriend (Kal) ad I took our first bites, we were taken back to our childhood. Waking up, smelling the fresh biscuits and warm chocolate that our moms were cooking up in the kitchen.
Chocolate Gravy Covered Buttermilk Biscuits
For the ingredients, you’ll need :
- 3 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 5 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- a stick of frozen butter
- 1 cup of buttermilk
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- dash of salt
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Now take the frozen stick of butter and grate it into the flour mixture. You can also cut it into small squares, which is what I did halfway through the process because the grating was taking too long.
Use your hands to combine the flour mixture and butter. You want to make sure there are no huge clumps of butter. The Mixture should resemble the texture of wet sand (but obviously softer lol)
Add in the buttermilk. Use a spoon to incorporate it into the mixture, but don’t over mix it.
Pour the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead the dough until it starts to form and then shape it into a rectangle.
Fold the dough over hamburger style.
Flatten the dough back into a rectangle, then fold it hot dog style.
Repeat this process about 5 times. This will create fluffy layers in the biscuits.
Now use something circular, like a cup, or a dough cutter, or just a plain knife to cut the dough into evenish circles.
Place the cut dough into a butter baking dish or cast-iron skillet. Then refrigerate for 10 minutes. Spread melted butter on the dough.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes.
While the biscuits cook, start on the gravy. In a small saucepan, whisk together the milk, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and flour.
Whisk consistently until the gravy thickens.
When the biscuits are done, pour the chocolate gravy on top.
