Whisk together buttermilk, cream, eggs and black pepper. Add to the center of the biscuits and stir until just combined. 

Pat out dough and fold dough in half. Pat out dough again and cut round biscuits.

Brush with butter and bake 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

For the melted milk chocolate lick

Fill a large skillet with water, and heat to just below simmering. Place a bag of Milk Chocolate Caibos in a heatproof bowl, such as stainless steel, and place the bowl in the water. Gently and constantly stir the chocolate while keeping the water below simmering.

Alternatively, melt the chocolate in a heat proof glass bowl in the microwave at 50 percent power for intervals of 20 seconds.  Stir until melted and warm.
