This easy and delicious Chocolate Chip Scones recipe makes the best snack to accompany your tea or coffee!
I have never met a scone I didn’t like- I mean, in the short time I have run this blog, I already have so many scone recipes up! Clearly, I am obsessed. But of all of the scones, these are hands down my absolute favourite scones ever! I mean, they include chocolate, so duh!
Scones are easy enough to make, so you don’t have to be an experienced baker to tackle this recipe! Novice bakers, this is a recipe for you! Its forgiving and easy.
I like to make my scones in my food processor, but if you don’t have one, you can easily do it with a pastry cutter (or two butter knives) to bring together the dough. A food processor really does make it incredibly easy to do without breaking a sweat so if you do have one, break that bad boy out! It is one of my most used appliances and has a permanent spot on the counter because of that!
How to make Chocolate Chip Scones
To make these scones, you will need:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup vanilla flavoured Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use mini)
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a food processor, add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pulse a few time to mix it thoroughly. Add the butter and pulse until it forms a coarse meal. (If you do not have a food processor, simply stir the dry ingredients in a large bowl and use a pastry cutter or two butter knives to work the butter in until it forms a coarse meal.)
In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk and yogurt together. Add it to the flour mixture and pulse until it combines into a wet but crumbly dough.
Transfer everything onto a clean, floured surface. It will be clumpy at this point. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the crumbled dough. Using your hands, work the dough to help bring it together and shape it into a 8 inch disc.
Cut the dough into 8 wedges and transfer onto the baking sheet, leaving at least an inch between wedges. Brush each scone with milk and sprinkle with some sugar. Bake for 15 minutes or until the scones begin to turn a nice golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes.
I serve these bad boys as is but you can also drizzle them with a simple icing (icing sugar and a bit of milk) or even some melted chocolate to up the chocolate factor! Why not?
