Buttermilk Chocolate Biscuits

2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
6 Tablespoons Butter, Very Cold
3/4 cups Buttermilk (approx)
1 cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons (heaping) Cocoa Powder
2 Tablespoons Whole Milk
1 Tablespoon Butter


For Biscuits: 1.) Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 2.) Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. 3.) Cut cold butter into chunks and then cut into the flour until it resembles a course meal. 4.) Add buttermilk until it is JUST combined (dont overmix). 5.) If it appears too dry, then add a tad more buttermilk. 6.) Turn dough onto a floured surface. 7.) Very gently pat (do not roll) until desired thickness (I like 1/2-1 inch thick biscuits). 8.) Using a round cutter, cut into biscuits. 9.) Place on a cookie sheet, brush with melted butter if desired. 10.) Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown on top. For Chocolate Gravy: 1.) Place all ingredients in a saucepan. 2.) Cook on medium-low heat until butter is melted. 3.) Simmer for just a little bit longer. 4.) Pour over warm biscuits and go to Heaven.
