SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIP SCONES

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 24
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz dark chocolate chunks or squares that have been chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • additional sugar
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 375' F
  • Lightly grease two baking sheets (or just use parchment paper and forget the grease).
  • Stir together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Then add the chocolate chunks.
  • Stir the vanilla and whipping cream into the flour mixture until just moist.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface
  • gently knead until the dough comes together. Divide into 3 equal ballsTake one ball and flatten it out into a circle....about 7" in diameter. Cut the circle into 8 pie shaped slices
  • Place the triangles onto your baking sheet and repeat the process with the remaining balls. Brush each triangle with the melted butter and sprinkle some granulated sugar on top.
  • Bake for 15 - 20 minutes (I believe my scone clones baked closer to the 20 minute mark...maybe even a minute or two longer). You want them to be lightly browned.
  • Serve warm and garnish with powdered sugar

Notes

This is a quick, easy, yummy recipe that I adapted from a Hersheys magazine. If you want different flavors, just swap out the chocolate for something else....blueberries and lemon zest? Almonds and orange zest? Let your imagination be your guide.
