Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones are the perfect breakfast, dessert or snack. Flakey and chocolatey, these scones are delicious anytime of the day!
are used to be a new thing to me back in 2014. I never wanted to try them before because they always looked a little dry to me. Needless to say I was wrong. I’m not sure why I was so hesitant, but I’m glad I finally got the nerve to try some.
I was at Starbucks and their scones looked so good. I knew I needed to take the plunge and try/buy one. I think it was the pumpkin or the blueberry scone. I’m not sure now, but I remember that I loved it. I ate the whole darn thing. Now I’m obsessed with any and all scones.
See, this is the thing with me. I’ll say I don’t like something over and over again. Then I finally get the nerve to try it and a-ha I love it. Once I figure out I like it, I then become obsessed with it. I’ll eat it over and over and over, until I’m sick of it and don’t want them again. Then I move onto something else. It’s a vicious cycle. Are you like that?
Since I went crazy for Starbucks scones, I knew I needed to come up with a scone recipe that was just as good, if not better. These Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones are it.
I’ve made these scones so many times that I’ve actually lost count now. The family loves them! I decided to make these scones for my mother in law and her friend one weekend they were visiting. My mother in law dove right in and enjoy every bite, but her friend nicely told me that she didn’t like chocolate chips. I told her that I was sorry I didn’t make another recipe and left the room for a few minutes. When I returned I saw that she chomping down on the scones. Being a good daughter in law just giggled and winked at my mother in law.
These scones are packed with chocolate chips and topped with a cinnamon glaze that’ll make them the most delicious scones e-v-e-r! They’re moist, crumbly and irresistible. Give them a try.
