Description

Perfect for breakfast, or any time of the day for that matter!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SCONES:
  • 1-½ cup Plus 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
  • Sugar For Sprinkling

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat (I love my Silapats, worth the investment ten-fold.)

In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine. Pour in chocolate chips and toss to blend. Create a small well in the center of the bowl. Pour in butter and heavy cream. Stir until just combined.

Using a large dough scoop (or two spoons), drop scones on baking sheet in mounds (should create 10-12 depending on size). For the topping, brush with melted butter and sprinkle tops with sugar. Bake for 15-18 minutes (until tops are lightly brown), rotating pan halfway through. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Serve and enjoy.

These were just what I needed to make it through finals…my dough seemed pretty dry (it wasn’t holding together), so I had to add another splash of cream, but they turned out great. I might add a little cinnamon next time too–I love cinnamon and chocolate!

I used dark chocolate baking chips as a personal preference. These are SO tasty and easy to make. Even my 3yo boy loves them. Awesome with a hot cup of tea!
