These deep dark, rich chocolate scones are filled with chopped chocolate, espresso powder, and mocha iced coffee for a little caffeine kick. Top these babies off with a little mocha iced coffee drizzle because why not?!
I have been wanting to make chocolate scones for soooo long! And if you know me, you know how much I love my scones. I’ve shared some pretty awesome flavors with you like orange, lemon blueberry, cinnamon chip, raspberry almond to name a few! Scones are always my go-to whenever I go to family and friends houses because they’re always a favorite and enjoyed by everyone wherever we go. What better way to have breakfast than to combine a scone, chocolate and coffee? They’re the perfect pair.
I used dark cocoa powder in my scone recipe, you can use regular if you prefer it but I just love the deep, rich flavor you get from the dark. I also chopped up a 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate bar and threw it into the scone dough. You can easily substitute chocolate chips for convenience. I love the way the irregular chopped chocolate chunks look, though! The dough will be slightly sticky when patting it out, so you’ll want to flour your surface pretty liberally. You’ll be using the iced coffee in the recipe as well as in the glaze on top! The glaze on top is just a simple mixture of powdered sugar, butter and iced coffee. Easy peasy. You can substitute milk for the iced coffee if needed.
I’m partnering with International Delight® to bring you this recipe today! I have posted numerous times about how much I enjoy International Delight® Iced Coffee, like in this mocha iced coffee popsicles post, they are so delicious. Just pull it out of the fridge, pour it out into a glass filled with ice and it’s ready to drink. It’s pretty awesome for the summertime especially. Save me lots of time and a ton of money that I don’t need to spend on coffeehouse iced coffee! I love all of the flavors! Above I pictured the mocha and vanilla, but they also have caramel macchiato as well.
Just take a look at this bite! Perfectly soft and moist but still has the tender, flakey, slightly crumbly scone texture. These are perfect, you guys!
I purchased my International Delight® Iced Coffee at my local Walmart. You can find it in the refrigerated Dairy section!
