3 Tbsp. sugar, divided
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups. self rising flour
1/3 cup. butter

Preheat the oven to 425F*. Combine 2 Tbsp. sugar and the cinnamon; set aside. Combine flour and remaining 1 Tbsp. sugar in a large bowl; cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk and chocolate chips, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to 1/2" thickness; cut with a 2 1/4 round cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet; sprinkle with sugar mixture.
