      I just LOVE peppermint so had to try this one. WOW! it is wonderful. I did have to add more milk as mine was dry but turned out great. Used my scone pan and got eight very big scones. It is rich but moist and love the bits of chocolate inside. Didn't put the melted choc. on top but would be more decadent if I had. Will do that next time.

      This scone recipe is like a rich, moist chocolate cake and wow does the mild peppermint set the chocolate off to it's very best. This just might become a Christmas staple at my house. It takes a little longer than your average scones but these aren't average (I'm having mine for dessert tonight). Pure YUM here.

      Let me start by saying "I liked them better cool than warm." But may be by the time they were cooled off, I had gotten my head around the fact that though they look like cake, they are really scones and should be a little less sweet. Also, when cold, the sweetness of the chocolate chips stands out more than when it was all warm. That said, warm or cold, they were a big hit with my family. A change I made was to use sour cream instead of yogurt because that's what I had and I skipped the sugar on top. (Though, come to think of it, that may have fueled my it's-not-sweet-enough minor complaint.) Thank you! Reviewed for the Comfort Cafe Event.
