✏️ How to make Chocolate Chip Toffee Scones:

*The complete, printable recipe is in the recipe card at the end of this post.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter two heavy large baking sheets (or line with parchment paper).

PREPARE THE SCONES:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips, nuts and toffee bits.
  2. In a large, chilled mixing bowl (chill bowl and beaters in freezer for 15 minutes- or in fridge for an hour), whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the dry ingredients; combine well. It will be sticky.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead gently until a soft dough forms; about 2 minutes. Form the dough into 2 balls. Pat each ball out into a circle. Place each on a cookie sheet, and cut pie-like into 8 wedges. Pull each wedge out a little bit to create about 1-inch space between each wedge.

ADD THE TOPPING:

Brush the scones with melted butter. Sprinkle each scone with a bit of granulated or coarse white sugar. Bake until golden brown, about 18 to 20 minutes.

➡️ Tips and Substitutions:

  • To toast walnuts, toss them in a little bit of oil and salt, if desired.  In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the walnuts until browned and fragrant, stirring occasionally, about 2 to 5 minutes.
  • Coarse sugar is delicious sprinkled on top. It can be found in the baking aisle of your market, or you can order it online.
  • If you prefer to make 8 large scones instead of 16, that’s totally do-able, but you should know that will be a significant calorie increase!

✔️ How to store:

Chocolate chip toffee scones will last one or two days stored in an airtight container at room temperature. If storing scones in the fridge they will last for about a week. Scones can be frozen too for up to about a month. Wrap each scone individually with plastic wrap, and then drop each wrapped scone into a large plastic zip baggie. Take them out to defrost as you’d like to enjoy them.

Ingredients

SCONES:

  • cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet, milk or dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 1 cup chopped Heath or Skor Bars (or use bagged toffee bits)
  • 2 cups chilled heavy whipping cream

TOPPING:

  • 2 tablespoons (¼ stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • granulated or coarse white sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter two heavy large baking sheets.

  2. PREPARE THE SCONES:

  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips, nuts and toffee bits.

  4. In a large, chilled mixing bowl (chill bowl and beaters in freezer for 15 minutes- or in fridge for an hour), whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into dry ingredients; combine well. It will be sticky.

  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead gently until a soft dough forms; about 2 minutes. Form the dough into 2 balls. Pat each ball out into a circle. Place each on a cookie sheet, and cut pie-like into 8 wedges. Pull each wedge out a little bit to create about 1-inch space between each wedge.

ADD THE TOPPING:

  1. Brush the scones with melted butter. Sprinkle each scone with a bit of granulated or coarse white sugar.

  2. Bake until golden brown, about 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Notes

  • To toast the walnuts, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place whole walnuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until they are golden. Stir once or twice or shake the pan during toasting to ensure even toasting. Remove from pan to cool; chop into smaller pieces. You can also pan toast them in a dry skillet. Keep an eye on them… they burn easily.
  • *If you prefer to make large scones, form one ball from the dough and pat out to 1 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough into 12 wedges.
  • *Unlike most scone recipes, this one is terrific the following day. They stay moist and delicious for a couple of days when stored in an airtight container.
