1/2 c sugar
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 (16.3 oz) can refrigerated flaky biscuit dough, cut into quarters
3/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
Preheat 350. Spray a 12-15 cup fluted pan with a nonstick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine sugar, 1 tsp. cocoa, and cinnamon. Dredge biscuit quarters in sugar mixture to coat; layer in prepared pan.
In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and remaining 2 tablespoons cocoa. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Pour mixture over layered biscuits. Bake 40-50 minutes or until biscuits are done, covering bread with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning if necessary. Let stand 5 minutes.
