Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup milk chocolate morsels or chopped milk chocolate bar (we tested with Hershey's)
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs or chopped toasted pecans
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Whipping cream (optional)
  • Coarse or granulated sugar (optional)

Preparation

  1. Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Stir in chocolate morsels and cacao nibs.
  2. Whisk together egg, 1 cup whipping cream, and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened and mixture forms a shaggy dough. Using a 1/3-cup measuring cup, scoop dough into mounds onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Brush scones with additional cream, and sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
  3. Bake at 425° for 18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
