Description

For the chocolate lover in your life, you’ll not want to miss trying these Chocolate Scones. Incredibly moist and chocolaty with just the right amount of sweet.


Scale

Ingredients

21/4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon half and half, divided
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips

Butter Vanilla Glaze

2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Instructions

Preheat oven to 425˚. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or 2 forks, until the mixture is crumbly.

In a small bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup half and half, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour the cream mixture into the flour mixture, stirring only until the dry ingredients are moistened; the dough will be sticky.

On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a disc shape of ½-inch thickness. Slice into 10 to 12 wedges; place on the prepared pans. Brush the tops evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon half and half. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips over the top if desired.

Bake for 10 to 14 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes and glaze with Butter Vanilla Glaze. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Butter Vanilla Glaze

Combine the melted butter, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla extract.  Add water as necessary to achieve desired consistency. Also add confectioners’ sugar as needed.
