Chocolate Chip Scones

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!

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.

Now mix in the heavy cream until combined and a dough forms.

Give the dough a few good kneads with your clean, well floured hands.

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.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned. Put on a pot of coffee and enjoy your delightful breakfast! 😄 Happy eating!
