It’s been just a little bit slow around here lately. We are working on some new big projects that we will be able to share with you in what seems like forever. I just wanted to remind you that we have totally not forgotten about you! I’ve been spending a lot of time at home working and watching tv in the background. Most recently I’ve been watching the Twilight series. Totally embarrassing I know, I really have a thing for saga series. Harry Potter and Star Wars are my usual go to, so I decided to watch Twilight to mix things up. It’s so bad, it’s good. Sometimes when the bad acting mixed with horrible writing happens all at once on the screen I totally get embarrassed and turn red, even though I am by myself. The reason I do like Twilight is because it is so bad it’s good. Much like these Chocolate Chunk and Cinnamon Scones. They are so bad it’s good in a different way. So bad, as in we made scones be yet another vehicle for the consumption of chocolate. Good, because you’re eating chocolate. So let’s be so bad it’s good together and eat these Chocolate Chunk and Cinnamon Scones and watch Twilight.

Chocolate Chunk and Cinnamon Scones
Makes 9

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks
1/2 to 2/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup heavy cream

1.Preheat oven to 350˚F.
2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
3. Cut the cold cubes of butter into the flour mixture until the butter is completely incorporated and the mixture has obtained a fine, mealy texture.
4. Add the chocolate chunks and gently mix together.
5. Fold in the buttermilk and mix together until just combined and the mixture has formed into dough.
6. Form the dough into an 8”x 8” square about 3/4 inch thick and cut into 9 pieces. Transfer scones onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
7. Brush the tops of each scone with a small amount of cream and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the scones puff up and the tops just start to brown.
8. Serve warm.

    I totally watch TV in the background when I’m cooking — good luck with all the work!

  4. Abby @ The Frosted Vegan Not Specified Not Specified

    Yeah I’ll take 5 of these, STAT!

  5. Kelly Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m guessing maybe this was copied from another scone recipe? I think step 4 should be add chocolate chunks? And step 5 is just add the buttermilk? I don’t see orange zest, juice or cranberries in the ingredients? Thanks – I love your site and recipes!

      You’re totally right! I altered our cranberry and orange scone recipe and did quite a sloppy job at that! Making the adjustments now. Thanks!

  6. Theresa Cohen Not Specified Not Specified

    please check directions – they don’t go with this recipe, possibly a cranberry orange scone?

    When I saw this I had to stop by and tell you how wonderful these sound. I’ve been craving cinnamon chip scones for ages and haven’t been able to find the chips, but your version with chocolate and ground cinnamon will definitely do the trick. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Sara @ Cake Over Steak Not Specified Not Specified

    Now there’s a scone I can get behind! Also, I’m working today while watching TV/movies in the background. I chose Pride and Prejudice but I totally considered Twilight. You’re not alone!

  9. Lily @ Life, Love, and Cupcakes Not Specified Not Specified

    I usually try and stay somewhat healthy when I make scones, but they’re just soooo good with chocolate! These look wonderful!

  10. Rachel Not Specified Not Specified

    This recipe looks delicious – I love a chocolate and cinnamon combo! But I’m confused about the orange juice in step 5?

  11. Chad Not Specified Not Specified

    Love it! It’s almost like chocolate chip cookies on steroids.

  12. Eleanor Not Specified Not Specified

    It’s a guilty pleasure but it is SO GOOD. I love twilight and chocolate, so I’m so in for this combination.!

  13. Katie Not Specified Not Specified

    I will have to pass this recipe along to my husband since he is the scone maker in the family. This looks divine. I love the idea of chocolate chunks in, well, anything!

  14. Melissa Not Specified Not Specified

    Now I want these for breakfast. So good.

  15. The slow pace Not Specified Not Specified

    mmm… lovely! Chocolate and cinnamon are two of my favourite things in the world. Put them together in a cookie and I’m sold!

    I love scones, and these look delicious! Since scones tend to be dry, what would you recommend adding to make them more moist?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      I would add an extra 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup of buttermilk!…the dough will feel noticeably more wet, but that’s okay!

  25. Laura (Tutti Dolci) Not Specified Not Specified

    Yes please to chocolate chunks at breakfast, gorgeous scones!

  26. Calee Not Specified Not Specified

    Yet another fantastic recipe. It wasn’t clear to me when to use the heavy cream (other than brushing), so what I did instead of doing buttermilk was mix the 1/4 c heavy cream that I’d bought with flax milk (typically don’t have dairy on hand) and kefir (you know, sour, like buttermilk, right?) to make the amount of liquid needed for this recipe. I doubled the recipe, and didn’t really measure the liquid (I am known around my house as the “biscuit queen”), so I ended up with drop scones, which turned out fantastic. Also, it’s worth noting that I dropped these on parchment, and froze on a cookie sheet, then put in a baggie to save for later. I do this with biscuits all the time, so why the heck haven’t I done this with scones? They bake just fine later. (just had one tonight)

  27. Jennifer Stewart Not Specified Not Specified

    Why would anyone use a regular chocolate chip when you have chunks available?

  28. Trisha Not Specified Not Specified

    beautiful! i love scones and chocolate. great combo!

  29. Teresa Not Specified Not Specified

    these look so scrumptious and rustic… i love that they can be made in no time and you don’t have to go crazy trying to make sure they look fancy!

  30. Dona Not Specified Not Specified

    Hello :) I was always wondering why some people use baking soda and baking powder togehter insted of using just one of them? I mean they both have the same purpose – to make something rise.
