  • 4 Ounces pastry flour
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup salt
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 1/2 Pound butter, ice cold and diced
  • 12 Ounces buttermilk
  • 4 Ounces cream
  • 4 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • black pepper, to taste

For the melted milk chocolate lick

  • 1 bag of Max Brenner’s Milk Chocolate Caibos or1/2 cup of chocolate chunks from Max Brenner’s Milk Chocolate Tablet

Directions

For the biscuits

Combine flours, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl. "Pinch in” butter until pea sized.

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.

Serve in individual dipping bowls or drizzle over individual biscuits.

Biscuit Shopping Tip

Southern food is a mixture of Native American, Creole, and European influences. Staples of this comfort food include corn (in all its forms), honey, chicken, pork, and seafood, all easily found at any neighborhood grocery store.

Biscuit Cooking Tip

Comfort foods tend to be on the heavier side, so try serving greens as a side dish.
