Have you guys noticed I have a *slight* thing for chocolate? While these breakfast treats can be (and I have) made with a slew of other mix ins, chocolate chips are by far my favorite. Another thing I love about these scones is that you can whip up a batch in no time. Freeze them individually and bango, scones for breakfast any ol’ time you want! Yet another dangerous recipe, as the ingredients are mostly pantry staples and take no time at all to prepare. Read at your own risk!
1½ cups plus 2 tbsp flour
¼ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp butter, melted
Additional sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add chocolate chips and toss in til chips are lightly coated.
Use a dough scoop or rounded tablespoon to drop rounds of dough onto prepared baking sheet. (If you’re freezing them, pop them in the freezer to firm up at this point, then individually wrap in plastic wrap.) Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle a tiny pinch of sugar on top.
