Okay! I admit it, I am a severe Chocolate Lover. I don’t go quite to addict, because I have promised myself I am going to lose weight and chocolate is off limits – lots at a time anyway. Today I decided it was time for some chocolate and I needed some tea, so what better way to ease the pain but to make scones with chocolate. UUUhhhhh!!!! So off to the cookbooks, teabooks, sconebooks for the right recipe.

    2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 large egg, lightly beaten
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 3/4 cup AP flour
    1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/3 cup (5T) cold unsalted butter, in pieces
    1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chunks/chips
    1/3 cup white chocolate chunks/chips (I made my own – extra chunky!) 

  • Preheat oven to 375
  • In bowl whisk cream, egg, and vanilla together. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix dry ingredients. Cut butter pieces into dry mix to resemble crumbs. (And, as usual, I used my processor. Much easier.) Add chocolate. Add cream mixture and process until dough comes together. If too dry add a tad of cream.
  • Transfer dough to lightly floured surface and knead a few times. If you don’t want the white flour on the scones, dust surface with chocolate powder. Shape dough into a 7″ circle. (I actually made two 6″ circles, but they were not as tall when baked.) Cut into 8 wedges with sharp knife. Brush tops with a mix of 1 beaten egg and 1T milk.
  • Bake 15 minutes until firm on edges and soft in center. Inserted toothpick should come out clean. Cool on wire rack.
  • Enjoy with a little clotted cream or lightly whipped cream.
  • MMMMMM!!!!!!!

    Well, that solved my chocolate needs!!!

    Let me know how you like them.
