DIRECTIONS

1.For the Biscuits, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, and cinnamon in large bowl. Cut in cold butter with pastry blender, or 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

2.Gradually stir in milk until a dough is formed. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 2 to 3 times, then roll out to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out 12 rounds with 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place rounds in buttered 9” baking dish.

3.Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until biscuits are lightly browned.

4.Meanwhile, for the Chocolate Gravy, mix sugar, cocoa powder, flour, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl; set aside. Melt butter in medium saucepan on medium heat. Gradually add flour mixture; whisk to remove any lumps and form a paste. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Cook 2 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla. Serve warm over biscuits.
