Recipe Notes:

  • Remember to use COLD butter! This will help your scones rise better. Plus, using a simple pastry cutter or two sharp knives will work fine to cut the butter into your flour. No need to drag out the food processor.
  • You can use regular cocoa powder with recipe. But, I highly recommend using dark cocoa powder with these. It gives the scones a delicious, deep chocolate flavor.
  • Don’t over mix your dough. Mix just until everything comes together. Over mixing can lead to tough-textured scones.
  • Peppermint candies are optional, but, do give them a little extra something and they are perfect for the holidays!
