I remember the first time I made scones - it was the 10th grade in Contemporary Living. As for the cooking/baking segments, we had to bake scones. The ones we made were fairly tasty - plain, but moist and flaky all in one.
I hadn't made scones since school, but I recently got into a scones kick when my roommate brought blueberry scones home from the grocery store. They were so delicious. Ever since then, I've been obsessed. I've had every intention of making a pumpkin scone... a cinnamon scone... lemon scones... and finally, chocolate scones.
The idea of making chocolate scones came after searching for a baked confection to make for some friends for a belated Christmas present. I originally made them my famous sugar cookies, but two weeks sitting in a canister is justifiably a reason to purge them and make something else... something fresh.
I found the recipe on Pinterest, from CamilleStyles.com. The image that was pinned on Pinterest was for a triple chocolate scone, which obviously looked and sounded amazing.
Here are my results:
|Promising dough all ready to be baked. I added extra chocolate chips than the recipe called for. Chocolate dough with chocolate chips.|
|I forgot one rule: don't cut until completely cool -- otherwise you end up with a gooey chunky mess. Oops! So much for presentation here.|
|After cooling and setting, this had the texture of a drier, fluffier brownie, but without the added oily richness. (In other words, no heartburn for me!)|
|Crumbly and delicious.|
If I make this recipe again in the future, I think that I will add an extra egg and omit some of the chocolate chips to allow for the scones to be a little more moist.
