A yummy chocolate scone with chocolate chips. I served these as an alternate to shortcakes for strawberry shortcake. Very good!

Absolutely loved these, but then I'm a chocoholic at heart, so . . . ! Easy to make & a delight to eat, especially when still warm! And even though I didn't have fresh strawberries, these scones were also great topped with a bit of thawed, sweetened strawberries & a drizzle of homemade chocolate sauce! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
