I figured we are due for a chocolate treat, do you agree?  I mean it’s been over a week since I posted my favorite fudge-y brownie recipe.  After that long without chocolate, I start to get a little twitchy.

Definitely time for double chocolate scones!

I love scones so much.  They are so quick and easy to make.  Just stir together some dry stuff, cut in cold butter, add some cream and and egg, pat it flat on a baking sheet, score, and bake.  I can whip up a batch in just a few minutes, and after 20 or 25 in the oven, there’s a warm, sweet breakfast treat right in my hot little hands.

Do you love chocolate and coffee as much as I do?  I think they are just made for each other.  I know this is a bit decadent, but I think we all deserve it at this point.

All my scone recipes, from this Frosted Vanilla Cookie version on, are inspired by Jessica from A Kitchen Addiction.  If you love your scones thick, cake-y, moist, and a little sweet, then you’ll love the way Jessica bakes them.  I’ve been using her ratios (more or less) for a while now, and they never let me down!

For this double chocolate scone recipe, we are adding cocoa to the dry ingredients, and studding the pastries with plenty of semi sweet chocolate chips.  Treat yourself today, and don’t forget the coffee!
