If you are looking for a special breakfast treat these are perfect. They are great served with a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.

Anytime that you get to have a little bit of chocolate for breakfast, it makes for a great beginning to the day.

My favorite way to eat these Chocolate Chip Scones is right out of the oven when the chocolate chips are soft and gooey.

Chocolate Chip Scones Recipe

If you have never made scones before this is a great recipe to start with. There are so many great ways to make scones. You can add blueberries or strawberries. Use cinnamon chips or white chocolate chips. Add in nuts and raisins. So many choices!

Chocolate Chip Scones Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, very cold
1/2 cup heavy cream, plus 1 tablespoon
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, for decorating

How To Make Chocolate Chip Scones

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a seasoned baking stone.

In your food processor, blend together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter and pulse until the butter is incorporated and the flour is the texture of sand, sticking together when pressed. If you are looking for a great food processor check out this Hamilton Beach that I have from Amazon. It has been a really good one!

Tips For Making Chocolate Chip Scones

  • Don’t scoop your flour when measuring. Instead spoon the flour into your measuring cup and then level it with the back of a knife.
  • Make sure the butter is cold and not at room temperature.
  • If you don’t have a food processor you can use a pastry cutter to cut the butter in.
  • Don’t over-mix the dough.
  • Keep the scones as cold as possible until they go into the oven so they will rise better.
