Chocolate Chunk Scones

We started with the pass through project yesterday! Since the kitchen is fully tiled we needed to remove most of the tiles from the wall where we’ll be adding the window before we can actually make the hole, and that’s what we did last night. Sadly since we’re both very busy lately we have to wait until next weekend before we can continue with it. The worst part is having to live with the chaos in the meantime, but that’s just the way it goes with DIY, right?

After working on removing the tile yesterday, I suddenly had a hankering for a warm scone. So I looked up a recipe online and when I found one that was fast and easy, I baked it while we watched a movie. They were delicious! I really recommend eating them warm, they’re so much better than cold.

Chocolate Chunk Scones

Recipe adapted from All Recipes
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp butter, chilled
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chunks
  • 5-8 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). In a bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix in the butter (cut into chunks) until it resembles coarse crumbs; I did this with my hands but if you have a pastry blender you can use that. Mix in the chocolate chunks, then the milk. Start by adding 5 Tbsp, then add more as needed. Dough should be just a bit sticky, and you should be able to hold it together. Pat the dough until it’s about 3/4 inch thick, and cut into small circles using a biscuit cutter. Bake for about 20 minutes, until edges are golden brown.

      The other day we talked about how it would be awesome to only need one or two hours of sleep. I would get so much more done!
