  • Method: Baking
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Dessert


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold, unsalted butter (cubed)
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Channel your inner Edward Scissorhands!
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, egg, and vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips. Stir until just combined. Remember, less stirring equals more tender!
  6. Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Knead the dough gently and form it into a 1-inch thick disc. No need for a ruler, folks!
  7. Cut the disc into 8 wedges and place them on the prepared baking sheet, evenly spaced apart. Give them room to breathe!
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes until the scones are set and slightly golden around the edges. Resist the temptation to taste-test with your fingertips!
  9. Let the scones cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap out the chocolate chips for white chocolate or nuts to mix up the flavor.
  • Garnishing Options: Drizzle melted chocolate or dust with powdered sugar for extra decadence. Go big or go home!
  • Cooking Tips: Ensure your butter stays cold for flakier scones. Pop them in the fridge if needed.
