Frosted Chocolate Scone-Bits (Yes, ANOTHER scone!)

 

I can’t seem to get enough of scones, so I altered a previous recipe I had for the

Mocha Almond Scone, and came up with this little chocolate delight! I used icing on these ones, with a fancy little design, and they tasted similar to an old-fashioned chocolate glazed donut (but not deep fried!) This is probably why I liked these ones so much. 🙂 This is a smaller recipe, and I made a batch of about 12-15 that were the size of timbits. 

Frosted Chocolate Scone-Bits 

Ingredients:  

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 50 ml brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp each baking soda and salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 an egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 cup skim milk minus 1 tbsp, and add 1 tbsp lemon juice to the milk and allow to sit for 5 minutes)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Dash nutmeg
  • 1/4 or 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 tsp espresso powder

Method: 

  • Pre heat oven to 400 F.
  • Mix all dry ingredients. Add butter and mix until crumbly.
  • Add wet ingredients and mix well.
  • On floured surface with floured hands, knead about 5 minutes adding flour as necessary
  • Use a cookie cutter or make balls of dough and place onto a floured cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 18-20 mins, until lightly cracked tops and are just barely firm when tapped.
  • Allow to cool completely before adding icing.

Icing Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tap vanilla

Method

  • Mix icing sugar, milk and vanilla in bowl. Split mixture into two separate bowls. In one bowl, add the cocoa powder and mix until blended. When scones are cool, apply a thin layer of the chocolate icing to each scone. Allow to cool, then drizzle each scone with a small amount of the while icing, making designs as you go along.
