Chocolate Peppermint Scones
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
I made these tonight, and they're very good! We didn't have peppermint extract, but what we did have was orange extract and raspberry extract. So, I made chocolate orange scones tonight. I'd definitely make these again!
This is absolutely fabulous and tastes delicious! Don't forget to use whole wheat PASTRY flour or there will be a slight crunch.
While the holidays are over I still wanted to try this recipe. Delicious! It is very easy and fast to put together. The kids I watch wondered why I was making chocolate stones! Of course they were gobbled up at snack time. I have a package of those Andes pieces and agree they would be great sprinkled on top just as these come out of the oven. Although I liked the crushed candy cane and chocolate too.
They were really great - like warm chocolate cookies almost. I didn't care for the sticky candy topping - next time I'll use Andes Mints since I think their texture would go better with the scones.
I was a litle skeptical about this one since I don't normally like mint and chocolate, but this is a really great recipe. Just the right combination of chocolate and mint and a unique texture. Plus, it's a very pretty addition to a Christmas goodie plate as a gift.
I made this recipe today and it turned out very good, nice minty chocolatey flavour, great texture, I will definitely make it again!
This recipe turns out so nice, I have to hide it from my family in order to have it for the special meals we wanted. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
