Decadent Chocolate Scones

Scones are always good, but this recipe is extra-special. By swapping some of the flour for cocoa powder and adding chocolate chips, you can make these decadent chocolate scones. This recipe is simple to prepare and you will end up with 8 deliciously rich chocolate scones, which you can enjoy halved and slathered with salted butter or perhaps with strawberry or raspberry jam and some clotted cream. Along with the flour, cocoa powder and chocolate chips, we are using cream or milk, vanilla, egg, sugar, salt, baking powder and butter. Use dark chocolate chips and either milk or white chocolate chips.

All you need to do is combine the ingredients to make the dough then you can divide the mixture in half 3 times to make 8 equal sized pieces. While some people prefer to make round scones, others like to make one large round, then cut it into 8 wedges to make wedge-shaped scones. Either way is good. It is just a matter of personal preference. These scones can be served warm from the oven (the best way!) or cold.

Double the recipe if you want to make more scones. If you have any left over they will keep for a few days in an airtight container. Enjoy one of these chocolate scones with a cup of tea or coffee as a late afternoon snack. Alternatively have one for breakfast or as dessert. These scones are as versatile as they are delicious. Perhaps you even want to indulge in two of these wonderful little treats! Continue reading
