What I love about scones is that they are quick to prepare, have a rustic, unpretentious look but smells and tastes absolutely amazing. The best part is they are best served warm, so there’s no need to wait for cooling completely which makes them a perfect treat for breakfast or as a snack any time of the day.


These Chocolate Scones are rich and chocolaty, with melted chocolate chips inside they almost taste like brownies, which makes them totally irresistible. So whenever you are craving chocolate or want a quick recipe to prepare for family or friends these scones might be the answer for you.
