Cranberry Chocolate Scones

Cranberry Chocolate Scones created by LUv 2 BaKE

Tasty, not dry scones, fast to make, but a bit messy. You could replace the cranberries and chocolate chips with about anything else that you can think of, but this is my favorite combo.

    I halved the recipe to make 8 scones. I really enjoyed the chocolate chips with the tart fresh cranberries. The scones were fluffy and I found them best warm just to the point that the chocolate melted. Instead of combining the cream, sugar and cinnamon to form a paste, I just used a little cinnamon and sugar mixed together and sprinkled it on the top. Thanks for a great recipe!

    These scones are great! I also used Craisins and I brushed the top with milk and sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar because I didn't have any cream on hand. They turned out great that way and I love the addition of chocolate with the cranberries. Thanks for the addition to my scone recipes.

    Loved the tartness of the cranberry compared to the sweetness of the chocolate. Pared these with lemon curd and devonshire cream- decadent! Only change I made was in the final steps i did not combine the cream and the cinnamon and sugar to make a paste- instead I brushed the scones with the cream and sprinkled the cinnamon and sugarover all. Yum- a definate new favorite in our house.

    These scones are delicious! They are very moist. I used craisins instead of fresh cranberries, as I didn't have those on hand. They were great with my morning cup of coffee or tea. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Denise. I'll be making these again!
