This recipe for Triple Chocolate Scones is so good! It’s really packed with chocolate so I would recommend this one as more of a snack with tea and coffee than breakfast. Although, I must admit, we’ve done both. Coffee lovers in particular will enjoy these scones with a cup of good, strong coffee! There is espresso powder included in this recipe. I subbed in instant coffee granules with easy success. However, you will not taste a coffee flavor; it just brings out the chocolate.
It’s only slightly more time-consuming than the other scones recipes I’ve shared only because there are a few extra ingredients to measure and mix in–and a glaze to make if you so desire. Still, it’s pretty quick to fix, especially if you have made scones in the past a number of times. It’s a lot easier to shape them quickly after you’ve had some practice. If you find that your scones keep sticking, make sure you evenly sprinkled on the powdered sugar mixture. Work quickly to shape the scones.
We have skipped the glaze for the scones. We really like them plain (I know, we are surprised too) so I’ve never even made it! Still, I’ll include it in the Triple Chocolate Scones Recipe located below so you have it if you need it. As glaze recipes go, it sounds really good. Maybe I will make it…one of these days! If you are on Pinterest, consider making a separate board to include “must try” recipes or scones recipes, like this one! It helps you keep straight the things you don’t want to accidentally lose.
