Tube of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (This cuts time and cost, but if you would rather make the biscuits from scratch, see video below. Note that the tube only makes 3 biscuits while the recipe I provide in the video makes about 12.)
Mini semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 425°.
Make the biscuit batter, or separate the biscuits from the tube.
For each bear, shape one biscuit into an oval for the body and placed on a greased (or foil-lined) baking sheet. Cut one biscuit into 4 pieces and shape into balls for arms and legs. Place next to body. Cut one biscuit into 2 small pieces and one large piece. Shape into head and ears and place above body. If using the tubed biscuits, you’ll have one lone biscuit left over. I just bake it with the bears.
Beat egg in a small bowl.
Brush egg over biscuits. Combine 2 Tbsp of sugar and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Sprinkle over bears. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Place chocolate chips while biscuits are still warm. I like doing two for eyes, one for nose, one in each ear and on each paw, and 3-5 for buttons, ties, or bowties, but have fun and do whatever you want.
