Hot Chocolate Scones...

I haven't had ice cream in what seams like forever. The last time I did, it was Edy's Slow Churned Hot Chocolate Ice Cream, and it was simply amazing. I'm not generally a fan of chocolate, but I am definitely a fan of all things hot chocolate. And now, I'm definitely a fan of hot chocolate scones... They are light, full of flavor and texture and not overwhelmingly sweet... They were simply delicious.

Hot Chocolate Scones...
Makes 8 scones

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour 
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 5 packets {2.65 oz} sugar free hot chocolate mix
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz. {1 stick} chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup small marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup Chobani 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Extra granulated sugar, for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugars, baking powder, hot chocolate mix and salt. 
  • Cut one stick of chilled unsalted butter into small chunks and add to the dry mixture. With your hands, combine the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal texture.
  • In a smaller mixing bowl, combine yogurt, egg and vanilla and whisk until mixed well.
  • Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir lightly. Add the marshmallows, white chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips and blend together with your hands. 
  • Once a solid mass has been conceived, place on a lightly floured surface and form a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Using a large knife, cut the dough into 8 slices {like a pizza} and transfer to a lightly floured circular baking sheet {I used a pizza pan}. Sprinkle the dough with extra granulated sugar before placing in the oven.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the dough in the center of the pan is as firm and solid as the dough around the edges of the pan.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before separating the scones from each other.
