Chocolate chip Scones

I know they look like chocolate chip cookies – not scones.  But trust me – they have the scone texture with the chocolately deliciousness of cookies.   And they were super-duper simple to make – you could not get any easier than this recipe.  You basically mix everything together and drop on a baking sheet (you can also form into a rectangle and cut into triangles to get your typical scone shape).  Either way – they were the perfect pick me up in the morning before a long day at the office – or whip them up to treat your coworkers to something extra special! :)


  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • Additional coarse sugar for sprinkling


1. Preheat the oven to 375˚ F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. 

2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; stir to combine.  Toss in the chocolate chips and stir to blend. 

3. Add the heavy cream to the flour mixture, stirring just until a dough forms and the dry ingredients are incorporated.  Knead the dough very briefly with well floured hands to ensure even mixing.

4. Using a large dough scoop, drop rounds of dough onto the prepared baking sheet.  Brush lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with additional sugar.

5. Bake 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
