Strawberry Dark Chocolate Chunks Scone

A few days back I woke up way too early.

My baby having a full belly went back to sleep very shortly but I didn’t.

Sitting in front of the computer and browsing through the Internet I stumbled upon post with a recipe for Berry White Chocolate Chunks Scones.

I actually had never baked scones before and after going through the recipe, which is crazy easy, I decided to make it for breakfast.

I took me about 20 minutes to make to dough. I didn’t bake it right away because I didn’t want them to be cold when my husband and two-year old get up.

I used only half of the ingredients from the original recipe and I ended up with 6 huge scones packed with strawberries and chocolate. 

I didn’t have white chocolate so I used dark instead and it worked perfect.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 (2 oz) cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup strawberries, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup dark chocolate, cut into chunks

3/4 – 1 cup heavy (whipping) cream*

extra cream or milk, for brushing (optional)
coarse sugar, for sprinkling (optional)**

* I used only 3/4 cup and it worked just fine

**I used turbinado sugar and it tasted delicious!!!

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425F. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the chopped strawberries and chocolate and toss to coat. Add the cream and stir just until the dough comes together. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times, then pat out about an inch thick.

Cut into wedges, squares or rounds using a knife, biscuit cutter or glass rim. Transfer onto a parchment-lined baking sheet; if you like, brush the tops with milk or extra cream and sprinkle with coarse (or turbinado) sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.

The funny part in this story is that all of those scones ended up in my belly and nobody’s else. My daughter after a few bites decided that she doesn’t want them because they make her “dirty”. When hot the chocolate inside those scones is nicely melted in parts and… ohhh so gooey :)

My daughter, though, doesn’t like this kind of texture. She wanted me to feed her those parts where there wasn’t any chocolate or strawberry (which was hard to find in these scones) and she didn’t want to touch them. Husband ate half of one scone and decided it’s too sweet with what I don’t agree. I think they are perfect when it comes to sweetness.

Have a great day, my friends.

  1. The story of your daughter not wanting to eat these made me laugh – my nephew and niece won’t eat anything either that gets their hands dirty. I am really enjoying all your photos, and I think I need to make this recipe soon – I am not a big fan of white chocolate, so I will use dark chocolate as well. Thanks for sharing!

    1. she’s got her father’s blood, that’s for sure. he is the same way… !!!
      as for those scones they are so delicious… If my family wasn’t so picky I would be making them more often. Now I don’t want to because I will have to eat them all. I wouldn’t might but my jeans would ;)

  2. I tried making scones once years ago when I was in the military. I asked everyone to write on the dry erase board the first thought that came into their head. Number one on the board was “Mojave desert.” I never tried again but yours look wonderful. I think you gave me a boost of encouragement to try again! I KNOW I owe you an email!! I’m feeling better today. Two days in a row now, I haven’t just been able to sit up but even got up and did dishes!!

    1. Jenn, great to hear you’re feeling better. Don’t worry about the email. It seems like you really exhausted. Sorry to hear that. It will soon pass.
      and if you decide to make those scones I can assure you they won’t be dry at all. with all the strawberries and melted chocolate they are amazingly moist. I LOVED THEM!!!

  3. Ewa everything you make just looks so delicious! I wish I wasn’t watching my carbs right now but I know my readership will so appreciate this scrumptious recipe in their collections! Thanks so much for linking up to The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post blog hop!
