Triple Chocolate Scones


Need more chocolate in your life? Yeah, I’m not sure what in my crazy mind made me decide to make these, but I’m so glad I did! Have guests coming for the holidays? These are a great treat to bring out with your coffee, for breakfast or dessert!

My only concern is I made them a little big. Well, maybe concern is not the right word. I shaped them into a 6inch circle and cut them into 8 wedges. Next time I might try to use the same method I used for the pumpkin scones. Those weren’t nearly as large!

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Keywords: bake bread breakfast chocolate
Ingredients (16 large scones)
  • 3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, cubed
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate, melted
  • 2 Tbsp coarse sugar
In a food processor, combine flour, brown sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add cubed butter and pulse until crumbs form. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
Add in chocolate chips. Mix in egg and milk and stir until just combined. Divide dough into 2 parts. On baking sheet with lightly floured parchment paper, shape one part of dough into a 6 inch circle, pressing lightly with hands. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into wedges (8). Leave wedges in place and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Repeat with second half of dough.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 25 minutes. Remove and cool slightly before separating wedges.
Drizzle wedges with melted chocolate. Sprinkle immediately with coarse sugar or sprinkles. Enjoy!

    I love scones, the only problem is they don’t taste as good the next day and I’m the only one who eats them in my house! I wonder if I could freeze them without the frosting???

    PB&P- This recipe made some giant scones. I frosted them AND put them in ziploc bags in the freezer. I took one out a couple days ago and let it thaw. It was actually really good still. Very biscuit-y, like a scone should be!

    Wow these look incredible… can’t wait to try this!

    oh wow! Love these. Not sure I’d eat them for breakfast — but certainly as a dessert :)

    Bite your tongue…there is never enough chocolate!!! And as for being a little big…haha more chocolate! I love it! Good to know that they freeze well too. Of course, stuff like this doesn’t last long enough to make it to the freezer:-)
