We don’t make breakfast a ton in our house. Normally we’re all about quick grab-and-go meals like our delicious banana muffins recipe, or something along the lines of an egg white scramble when we have a little more time.
We’ve also had weeks where we’ve been obsessed with all things pancakes and waffles…be it pumpkin and carrot pancakes, or carrot and double chocolate waffles. And we’ve done the make ahead waffle mix to have on hand for just those occasions.
So, while researching new ideas for our on and off breakfast menu, we decided that we needed to try these Chocolate Breakfast Biscuits.
Really–what more needs to be said? You’ve got chocolate, and that sounds like a heck of a good way to start a morning. Add in a cup of coffee if that’s your thing, and you’re pretty much golden.
Now.. the thing about rolling out this dough is this–you can use flour, like you would for a typical biscuit dough, or you can mix things up a little bit and roll these babies out on a little dusting of powdered sugar. If we had to choose…we’d go for the sweetness. But, that’s us.
