Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cocoa powder and salt together in a food processor. Pulse to mix.
  3. Cube the butter and add. Pulse until the butter is combine and looks similar to a sandy mixture.
  4. Pour the content from the food processor into a bowl.
  5. Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk and mini chocolate chips. Combine until the dough comes together.
  6. Dump out the dough on a well floured surface. Fold the dough a few times, but do not over work it.
  7. Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin to a thickness of about one inch.
  8. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits in a straight up and down motion. Note: Do not twist when cutting out the biscuits. Twisting will seal the sides preventing them to properly rise.
  9. Place the cut out biscuits on a baking sheet. They can be close to each other, but try not to have them touching.
  10. Reform the scrap pieces and roll out again and cut more biscuits until you use all of the dough.
  11. Brush with buttermilk biscuits.
  12. Sprinkle the course raw sugar, this step is optional.
  13. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
  14. Serve as is or a la mode (with a scoop of vanilla ice cream), or with fresh fruits and berries sauce. Enjoy!
