Everyone loves a good scone recipe, and chocolate is always popular! These Chocolate Chunk scones are very decedent and deliver a mouthful of chocolate in each bite.
The ingedients should already be in your baking cupboard- unless you are like me and use cooking chocolate as a late night snack!
It doesn't take long to mix the dry ingredients together, then add the butter and form a dough with the other ingredients.
I take the lazy way with scones and cook them as a whole round, then slice into wedges when cool.
Mmmm, look at all of this chocolate!
