Fried Chocolate Biscuits

A wonderful, unique Southern food!

This is one of the best southern desserts ever! Another Southern food creation from my warped mind – fried chocolate biscuits! This is how my brain works: I see a can of cheap refrigerated biscuits in the fridge. Next to the roll of dough is a partial bag of chocolate chips. On the stove is a pot filled with oil that I’m going to use to fry some tater tots for the kids. Okay, you see where this is going, right?

I gotta tell ya, these things were delicious! Lexi, my seven-year-old granddaughter, said it was the best dessert she’d ever had! These are super easy to make, so if you’re looking for quick and easy desserts that are scrumptious, give my recipe a try!

Holle’s Fried Chocolate Biscuits recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits (I used the cheap kind)
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Vegetable oil
  • Powdered sugar

Directions: Place a sheet of waxed paper on your countertop. Spread the raw biscuits on the waxed paper. Flatten out the biscuits with your hands.

Place chocolate chips on each biscuit, just off-center. I probably used about 2 teaspoons of chips on each biscuit. Just make sure the biscuits will close completely when folded over.

Fold one side of the biscuit dough over and seal edges with a fork.

Fry the filled biscuits in vegetable oil over medium-high heat until golden brown.

Remove biscuits from oil and drain on paper towels. While still hot, roll in powdered sugar.
