Classic Scones are out, and chocolate scones are in! These triple chocolate scones are encased in a thin, crispy shell that when broken reveals a delicate, almost chewy, center. Every chocolate chip becomes a rich, chocolatey surprise in this chewy/chocolatey/crispy treat.
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 6 Tbsp. butter
- 7-8 Tbsp. milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 3 Tbsp. chopped or grated dark chocolate (optional, I did not use these)
1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line one flat baking tray with grease-proof paper.
2. Sift first five ingredients and chocolate chips and/or grated chocolate into a bowl. Then, add vanilla and chopped up butter.
3. After you have done that, blend all of the ingredients together while gradually adding the milk; until the dough is moist enough to form a small ball, but not sticky.
4. In this stage, be careful not to handle the dough too much. Place the dough onto a lightly floured cutting board and carefully press down to about 1/2 an inch thick.
5. Cut into desired shapes, I just used a small rounded cookie cutter. Then, place onto your baking tray. Leave a couple of centimeters space between each scone to prevent them from rising into each other.
6. Once you have used up all of your dough, put the scones in the oven to bake for about 8-15 minutes (depending on the size of each one).
I love these! They have the perfect amount of cocoa, and are a perfect texture for scones. 5/5
