More About This Recipe

  • Scones are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast or brunch because they’re fast, really easy to make, and really easy to customize with any flavor your heart desires. Today we’re going with one of my favorite combos: Chocolate and orange. I’ve also had success using raspberries and chocolate before, and I’m sure white chocolate would be insanely good. The possibilities are seriously endless! Personally, I like to eat mine with some sort of hot beverage, either tea or coffee. Enjoy!
