Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Servings 8 scones



  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tbs dark brown sugar may use light
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp espresso powder more if desired
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter very cold
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs International Delight® Mocha Iced Coffee
  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate roughly chopped


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbs unsalted butter melted
  • 4-6 tbs International Delight® Mocha Iced Coffee


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and set oven rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, gently toss flour, both sugars, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a separate small bowl, whisk sour cream, egg and coffee until completely smooth. Set aside.
  • Grate frozen butter into flour mixture. Using your hands, work in the butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the chopped chocolate at this time, reserving 2-3 tbs. Gently stir in sour cream mixture until just about combined. Do not over work the dough! Again, very gently press the dough against the sides of the bowl a few times and form a ball. The dough will be sticky at first but will come together as you form it.
  • Place dough on a lightly floured surface and lightly pat into an 8" circle about 3/4" thick. Sprinkle the reserved chopped chocolate on top and press them down firmly into the dough. Use a very sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles (like a pizza). Transfer triangles onto prepared baking sheet. You can arrange them in two rows, 4 in each row, or arrange them in a circle shape - leaving about 1" between each one.
  • Bake scones for 15-17 minutes or until the tops begin to golden. Don't take them out too early or they will be too soft. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes on the pan before transferring onto a wire rack to finish cooling completely. During this time, prepare glaze. Whisk together powdered sugar, melted butter and iced coffee until smooth. Once scones are completely cooled, go ahead and either dip the tops of the scones into the glaze or drizzle it on top with a spoon. If you drizzle, you will have glaze leftover.
