Make these in the morning. You’ll be glad you did.
I was flipping through some of my cookbooks the other day and became mesmerized by a recipe for these biscuits from the book Deep Dark Chocolate . It’s filled with decadent recipes using dark chocolate. And with a title like that I would normally go for something all chocolate, super rich and fudgy. And I almost always pick a recipe accompanied by a photo. I’m very visual and like to see what I’m in for before hand. This one didn’t have a photo with it, but it still captivated me.
Swirled chocolate in a biscuit.
I’m all in.
These are pretty quick to make. You can have one in your tummy in no time.
Chopped dark chocolate.
Get it. Get it good.
Beginnings of the biscuits.
Flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and buttah.
Stir in some milk and the dough will start to come together.
Flour your work surface and hands and form the sticky dough into a ball that you can then start to flatten and roll.
Roll into a rectangular shape.
Spread some softened butter on top.
Sprinkle with a bit of sugar.
And a little chocolate. Just a little. ; )
And roll it up all jelly roll style for chocolaty swirls.
Then cut the roll into equal sections.
Like so. Maybe smaller chocolate chunks would have made my swirls more distinct.
That’s ok. I’m good with over-the-top chocolate.
Umm… yeah. Totally fine with that.
Eat them warm from the oven.
Warm with a little melted butter. Yes, please.
A yummy way to start the day.
