Chocolate Strawberry Scones
To me nothing screams Valentine’s Day more than chocolate covered strawberries. This year, skip the hassle of dipping strawberries and make a delicious breakfast out of them! Your loved one will love these heart shaped scones!
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking power
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 stick cold butter, cut in pieces
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 cup whole milk
Cream for brushing
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F
In a bowl combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt
To the flour mixture add in the cold butter. Rub the flour and cold butter between your fingers until no large chunks of butter remain. You can also use a pastry cutter if you’d like!
Mix in the chocolate chips and chopped strawberries until combined
Add in the milk and mix until a dough forms. Don’t over mix!
Pour out the dough onto a lined sheet tray and press it into an 8 inch circle
Using a knife cut the dough into wedges. Optional: make each wedge into a heart! Watch the video to see how
Brush the top on the scones with cream and put into the preheated oven
Bake for 20 minutes until a beautiful golden brown. Let them cool slightly before dusting with powdered sugar and serving! Happy Valentine’s Day!
