Triple Chocolate Scones

 

Mover over chocolate lovers, the scone you never thought you needed is here!  These Triple Chocolate Scones will satisfy your chocolate craving with a triple dose of chocolate.  They feature a moist and fluffy chocolate scone with chocolate chips throughout and a drizzle of chocolate on top.  I love to have one as a midday pick-me-up with a hot cup of coffee.  The secret to making these scones fluffy is to use cake & pastry flour, which gives them a lighter texture, and not over-work the dough.

 

 

 

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Scones

 

  1. Make sure the butter is cold:  Mixing cold butter into the scone dough will ensure the scones rise well in the oven – as cold butter facilitates leavening – and are flaky.  If warm butter is worked into the dough, the scones will not rise as much and will have a harder texture.
  2. Do not over-mix the dough:  Do not over-mix the dough once the egg mixture has been added or the scones will not rise as much in the oven and be tougher.

 

 

Recipe Q & A

 

Q:  The bottom of my scones are getting too dark during baking.  How do I prevent this?

A:  You can prevent scones from becoming too dark on the bottom during baking by doubling up the baking pans.  This means placing the baking pan with your unbaked scones on top of another baking sheet.  Doing this allows the heat to dissipate and be less intense at the bottom of the pan resulting in less browning.
