Chocolate Scones | How to make Mini Chocolate Scone

>>  Thursday, April 2, 2015

After the Chocolate chip Scone, I decided to go for another version of chocolate scones. I did confess that my first try didn't end up being a scone. So I was determined that I bake a proper scone in the shape it is supposed to be. Only after realizing the mistake, I looked up different scone recipes and technique followed in making a scone.

I landed here and decided this will be a hit with the kids as it is with chocolate chips and cocoa. By then I had watched couple of scone videos and pretty sure it will turn out great. Though something struck that slicing the scones in the traditionally huge ones will be too heavy. So I further sliced it down and made a mini version of the chocolate scones.

As the kids were at home because of summer vacation, I had to stock up the snacks and it naturally had to be chocolate based. Since I had planned on the scones for Week 1, I had to make this sooner than expected. Even though it was chocolaty, Athamma also liked it and needless to say Kids loved it.

I had to control my urge to end up with more scones, having landed with a perfect recipe. I could change the ingredients and come up with different combinations. However knowing only chocolate is the fast moving item at home, I didn't want to unnecessarily land up with too many high calorie stuff. So the rest of the two days will feature other quick breads that I enjoyed baking an eating.

I know dark chocolate colour isn't always the most appealing one when captured. Trust me, these were so much loved and enjoyed. 

Chocolate Scones Recipe

Ingredients Needed

All purpose flour - 1 3/4 cup
Granulated sugar - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1/3 cup
Cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
Dark Chocolate Chips - 1/3 cups
White chocolate chips - 1/3 cups
Vanilla - 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder - 2 1/2 tsp
Salt a pinch
Egg Replacer -1 tbsp mixed with 3 tbsp water
Milk - 2/3 cup (I used only half)

How to make Chocolate Scones

Pre Heat the oven at 185 C and line a parchment paper over a baking tray 

In a small bowl, whisk the egg replacer with water and keep it aside.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add the butter and crumble well. Stir in the chocolate chips and combine everything together and add milk slowly.

The dough should be little stiff, you can roll it again with little flour and shape it as circle. I made small discs and made mini scones.

Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until they are firm around the edges but a bit soft in the center. A toothpick inserted into the center of a scone will come out clean. Cool on a wire rack. 


Since the regular scones seem to be very huge, I decided to make smaller ones and my kids enjoyed it so much. I really can't think how this is served for breakfast as it's quite sweet. This serves best as snacks for kids

When adding milk ensure you do it little by little, instead of dumping the entire quantity. I used only half of the mentioned amount.
