Hey pixels!! Do you like scones? And chocolate? If the answer is yes, you’re going to love this recipe!! My first time making scones at home, and, of course, I had to add some dark chocolate!!
I think this recipe is awesome. I had to try it. Imagine to eat a couple of scones and some fruit… Yummy!! A perfect brunch. Everyone will love you.
You can even change the recipe using white chocolate or even fruit pieces. Strawberry scones? Why not? You can make them without adding anything, just the dough. Or change the glaze recipe. You can personalize this recipe the way you prefer. That’s another great point, I think, because you can try different versions and choose your favourite one. Just think about it, my happy pixels!! 🙂
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for hands and work surface
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted cold butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Place a silicone baking mat/parchment paper onto a standard baking sheet and set aside.
Mix together the dry ingredients. Grate the butter into the bowl and mix together with your hands or a spatula until it has a course meal consistency. Set aside.
Whisk together the wet ingredients in a small bowl.
Pour half of the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and fold together. Once incorporated, mix in the rest of the wet mixture and mix together. Don’t overmix.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Work the dough into a ball using floured hands and move to a floured surface. Pat into a disc. Cut into 8 pieces.
Place them onto the baking sheet, spacing them.
Bake for 20′.
While the scones are baking, make the glaze: melt chocolate chips using the microwave. Fold in the heavy cream and mix well.
After the scones are done baking, let them cool. Decorate using the chocolate sauce. Eat. Repeat.
