Chocolate Chip – Toffee Scones

Dry.
Crumbly.
Eat it now or it will soon turn into an inedible mass that you’ll need to dip in your coffee to soften enough for consumption.

Those are the thoughts that flash through my mind when I think of scones. So I rarely make them… unless I can eat them now or serve them soon after removing from the oven.

This recipe for Chocolate Chip- Toffee Scones was calling out to me… “Try me! I won’t be like the rest! I’ll be the best scone you’ve ever had!” How could I possibly resist that?

Side note and/or fact about me: I have some sort of addiction to all recipes that have “toffee” within the title.

I guess the thought of noshing on a baked good that has all of those melted toffee bits hiding inside is just too difficult to refuse. See that sneaky bit of toffee oozing out? Heaven!

These amazing little scones were anything but dry and crumbly. They were actually even better the following day. When you let those chocolate chips and gooey bits spend the night buried within their doughy exterior, they manage to fend off the dryness and intensify the flavor.

A coating of coarse sugar allows for a sweet bite all around.

Tried it? Check.
Like the rest? Nope
Best scone I’ve ever had? Hard to say as I’ve had a few in my day, but it’s definitely among the top three.

These were happily consumed and enjoyed. Every last toffee bit.

    Funny how recipes talk you into making them! Lol! They look wonderful and not dry at all! I’m also a sucker for all toffee things, plus if chocolate is there as well!

    I feel the same way about chocolate chips! Hee hee. For all the sweet stuff I’ve made, I’ve actually never attempted scones. I’ve been afraid they’ll come out dry and an utter waste of all that butter. I’m bookmarking these!

    They certainly look different to the regular type of scone. I’d happily dip them into my glass of milk!

    you’re so right. I usually have to lather my scones with butter to make them taste ok. these really do look nice and moist. And even better the next day? I’m sold!

    although i’ve never taken a bite of a scone and enjoyed it, i suspect that one of these would make that a false statement. chocolate and toffee are alternate words for delicious in my world. :)

    The ONLY scones that I’ve ever eaten in my life are the ones that I made a while back, from the Veganomicon cookbook (they were Pumpkin Cranberry scones) – they were moist, flavorful, and delicious; so I never thought that scones could be dry and crumbly, haha!! :0) But hey, yours look sooo luscious – yum!!

    Scones featuring chocolate chips & toffee? I'm all over it. (Chocolate & toffee is a combo I just cannot get enough of!)

    Janna — September 16, 2008 @ 1:50 PM

    These look positively mauvelous, dahling! (said in badly typed English accent) I am going to have to make these because a) I haven’t made scones yet b) my husband LOVES toffee (as in big puffy beating heart “loves”) c) they look so darn good!
