sea salted buttermilk biscuits stuffed w/chocolate on Vanilla Sugar's blog. Brilliant idea! Just brilliant. I had to try it out and the experiment fit right in with the weekend brunchfest. I just incorporated the chocolate and sea salt into my usual drop biscuit recipe. I'm too lazy to make pretty biscuits...ehehehehe.
Very tasty....do not skip the coarse salt across the top....seriously that part just brings it home. I may have had a wee bit much chocolate though. Brace yourself for possible molten chocolate explosion.
I browse a ton of food blogs and run across so many creative, amazing recipes...my stack of recipes I want to try out is wicked thick. Slowly....and I do mean slowly....ehehehe I get there. It's hard to choose what to make in a week...something wandering around in my own head or something from the stack. I'd love to just go on a baking bender, but then I'd have to taste test everything and spend an unspeakable amount of time on the treadmill. ;) Moderation is an evil hussy.
Salted Chocolate Drop Biscuits for Two
1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tbls sugar
2 tbls tub margarine
3 tbls skim milk
1 oz dark chocolate (2 squares)
coarse sea salt
Mix together flour, baking powder, and sugar. Blend in margarine until mixture resembles crumbs. Add milk and stir until just combined. Drop a small portion of dough onto a greased cookie sheet and spread it out a bit. Place the square of chocolate in the center. Drop another portion of dough over top of the chocolate to seal it in. Repeat for second biscuit. Sprinkle some coarse sea salt across the tops. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until nicely browned.
