Yes, I just found my new favorite scone!

I tested them out on some friends, and they agree! In fact, we ate them all before I got to take pictures, so I had to make them again.

No worries…

Chocolate makes everything better!

Buttermilk scones sweetened just to perfection studded with chocolate chips. Kind of like eating a giant chocolate chip cookie for breakfast… without the guilt.

  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

  3. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

  5. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist.
  6. Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands.

  8. Using a knife, cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.

  10. Bake until golden, about 18-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Serve warm.
