Who doesn’t like the smell of cinnamon and chocolate in the morning? These delicious scones can be prepared ahead of time, so all you have to do in the morning is pop them in the oven. They are also perfect for company, as scones seem a bit more impressive than an ordinary muffin, although they are just as easy.
The key to these scones is the deep dark chocolate chunks, I used 70% Cacao Organic Chocolate. Organic and fair trade chocolate can get pricey, but it is so rich and decadent you barely need any at all. The whole recipe only required 2 ounces.
Once you’ve chopped the chocolate up, it looks like quite a bit.
Shaping scones is easy! Pat your dough into a circle, about 3/4 inch thick.
Just take a bench scraper or knife and cut into 8 even pieces.
Spread them out on your baking sheet.
This is the point that you can cover and refrigerate these scones overnight. When ready they bake up in less than 20 minutes!
