I love breakfast foods. I love sweets and I love breads. I think scones are pretty darn perfect! I make a triple batch of these about twice a month and they never last more than 2 days! I pretty much eat them for breakfast, lunch, snack and midnight snacks until they are gone!
It literally takes longer to preheat the oven than to prepare these for baking. I toss everything in my bosch and it’s good to go! It’s an easy enough recipe that the kids can help me make them, which is always fun. They love helping me shape, cut and then top the scones.
Personally I prefer mini chocolate chips in these. They are super easy, I always have them on hand and I always get a little bit of chocolate in every bite! BUT I’ve made them with peanut butter chips, chocolate chunks, dried cranberries, etc… sub out ANYTHING you want for the chocolate!
These dress up nice for holidays too, you can pat the dough out into 3/4 inch and use cookie cutters to make shapes. You can top with any color of the large sugar crystals too! These are a go to for holiday breakfasts at our house! What would you put in yours?
Easy Chocolate Chip Scones

- Preheat oven to 425 dgrees
- Whisk flour, sugar, powder, salt and Chocolate chips.
- Add the cream to the flour mixture and mix until moist.
- Then knead the dough in the bowl 5-10 times, this should clean up the sides.
- Transfer the ball to a slightly floured surface and pat out to one large 8 inch circle (or two small circles) about 3/4 inches tall.
- Then cut each circle into 6 pieces and transfer to baking sheet.
- Brush top with extra cream and sprinkle on the sugar crystals.
- Cook for 12-15 mins.

My kind of breakfast! Have you ever tried freezing them?
They probably would, just be a bit dry on the other side, breads freeze well. But honestly a triple batch never lasts long enough at our house to test it!
These look amazing!! Thank you for sharing this my kids love anything at breakfast with chocolate chips.
After I make a triple batch we eat a bunch fresh, then I put half the rest in a bag for the kids the next day and HIDE the rest for myself!

Oh yum! I love scones! Can’t wait to try these. Just pinned it!
Mmmm me too, i could eat scones every day! there is just something about them I love!
These look delicious! Crystallized sugar is a scone necessity! Wanted to let you know I linked to these in my recent tea party round up post, I just found you through Pinterest.
thanks so much for the link!! I LOVE scones and make these all the time!
Have you used whole milk inside of the heavy cream? Will it change the texture?
it will totally change the texture, it won’t work. I have a more involved recipe that uses eggs and butter and cream, but I still wouldn’t use milk instead. you could swap butter and milk for cream, but not straight milk.
Wow…good advice. I didn’t know that. Who woulda thunk ? 🙂
I don’t have heavy cream on hand, do you think half and half will suffice?
I hope so, I’m pretty excited to make these…
no, but you could mix butter and milk to create cream!
Would it be too overpowering to use regular sized chocolate chips?
I think it just depends on what you like! I like semi sweet but my mom likes milk, so I made her’s with a milk chocolate bar, that I chopped up, so you can size the way you want.

I love scones, too, and it’s been ages since I made them. Thanks for the delicious reminder! Pinned and Stumbled – so I can’t forget again! LOL!
you are so welcome! seriously so easy and so versatile
Do you think I could make these Gluten Free?
I don’t know anything about gluten free, I assume that any normal GF to flour substitution will work just fine, but I can’t promise anything!
Just made these for a tea party … yum yum yum and sooooo easy !!!!!!
so glad you enjoyed making them!
A friend dropped a few of these off on Sunday as a thank you for helping her and oh my, they were amazing! I asked for the recipe and I am trying them myself today. Thanks!
you are so welcome! glad you enjoyed the scones!!!
These were so yummy and moist! Thanks for posting such a good, and easy, recipe!
you are so welcome! we adore these.
I made them exactly The way your recipe called for and they are amazing! Thank you so much!
so glad you enjoyed them!!!
I love the fact that this recipe is so easy! No grading butter! I was wondering if blueberries would work instead of chocolate chips?
Yes – just be very careful as you fold in the berries and as you shape the scones so that you don’t squish the berries
I make these scones all the time now! They are the best… thank you so much for sharing!
you are so welcome! We make them all the time too!
