Chocolate Chip Scones

These chocolate chip scones are delicious warm, served with butter, when the chips are melted and gooey. —Diane LaFurno, College Point, New York

    These were so quick and simple to make! You definitely could use any flavor chips you like, or even dried fruit. I'd have loved some chopped dried cherries mixed in along with the chips, but my my guys wouldn't have. Next time I'll make a batch just for myself that way. These were perfect with a cup of tea, and made great after school snacks too.

    I just took these out of the oven ..... I used sour cream instead of heavy cream (because that's what I had on hand....) and I added some cinnamon to the dough because I love the combination of cinnamon and chocolate ..... just took a bite and I must say.... these scones are delicious!!! Quick and easy to make .....perfect for when I'm craving sweets and chocolate..... not quite as "damaging" as chocolate chip cookies!!! I also brushed each with half and half and coated with decorative sanding sugar before baking.... beautiful sparkling little scones!! ...... Five stars for sure!!

    I have been making these scones ever since this was first published. I always substitute sour cream for the whipping cream and add dried crancherries for a little bit of tartness with the chocolate. I also brush the tops with a little milk and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. I love the sparkle and crunch it adds.

    Great recipe. I used half and half as I didn't have whipping cream and I used more than 3 tablespoons as the batter was just too dry. It only made 4 but this was just perfect for daughter and me.

    These are so simple and completely perfect! I replaced the chips with blueberries and they were awesome. I don't need another scone recipe!

    I added 1/4 cup toasted almonds and 1/2 tsp. almond extract which made them BEST!

    My son made these for a 4-H fair and got a blue ribbon and an Award of Merit on them. We will definitely make these again.
