Glazed Chocolate Chunk Scones

7 Flares 7 Flares ×

Everyone in my family is a chocolate lover/addict. When I make something sweet without chocolate I can usually count on my brother to either ask why it doesn’t have chocolate, say that it would be better with chocolate, or just stare at me deer-in-headlights like I may have a mental disorder. On the other hand, my 5 year old sister insists that she doesn’t like dark chocolate. If it contains dark chocolate she usually won’t eat it, yet sometimes she loves it. Five year olds are very unpredictable. I adapted this recipe from one that used blueberries instead of chocolate.

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Cut in cold butter using pastry cutter, food processor, knives, or forks (I used two forks but this can be time consuming).

They do not make sour cream in Chile so when I use a recipe that calls for sour cream I either use yogurt or make my own (I will have to post how to do that sometime. It’s really simple). For this recipe I used a 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 plain yogurt. Mix sour cream or yogurt with egg and vanilla. Pour mixture into dry ingredients and stir lightly. Fold in chocolate last.

Spread out on greased or nonstick pan. You can do scones many different ways. If you like more edge you can cut them and separate them before baking or bake first and then cut. My family likes them on the doughy side so I do the latter. You can also do whatever shape you like: circles, squares or triangles. Usually I would be lazy and put them on a single cookie sheet and bake first and cut after into squares or triangles, but the oven I am currently using is not wide enough for a cookie sheet. Therefore, I decided to do these on two nonstick pizza pans.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges start to brown.

While the scones are cooling, whisk all ingredients together for the glaze. Start with 2 cups of powdered sugar and add until you reach desired thickness.

When completely cool drizzle glaze over scones and let dry for 30 minutes to 1 hour until glaze is hard.
