Dark Chocolate, Honey, and Sea Salt Drop Biscuits

Chocolate Sea Salt Drop Biscuits

Dark Chocolate, Honey, and Sea Salt Drop Biscuits
Makes 6-8 biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp plus ½ tsp granulated sugar
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp table salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
1¼ cups buttermilk
1 tbsp honey
¾ cup dark chocolate chunks, heaping
¼ tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 425. Grease baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine flour, 1 tbsp sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and table salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into the dry ingredients until incorporated. Add buttermilk and honey and stir to combine. Fold in chocolate until just combined. Meanwhile, combine reserved ½ tsp of sugar with ¼ tsp sea salt. Scoop dough onto baking sheet in 1/3 cupfuls. Sprinkle each biscuit with the sugar-sea salt mixture. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Biscuits are best eaten the day of.

*I admit that this is also entirely negotiable, considering scones may have savory ingredients, too, but let’s save this back-and-forth for another post.

    I still say these are scones because I feel the term “biscuits” gives me freedom to eat 3 or 4 at a time. People can sit down and have a couple biscuits but very few sit down and down 3-4 scones…BUT when they are this great it would be hard not too! AMAZING recipe!

      I know, I had difficulty deciding. But ultimately, I had biscuit dough in mind when I was making them all along…and they did not disappoint! I’m glad you like them, because I am craving another batch already. 😛

    I love the pairing of dark chocolate and sea salt. I’ve bought many chocolate bars with sea salt sprinkled on top, and I always seem to finish them in one day! I’d probably do the same with your biscuits; they look amazing!
