These icing-drizzled scones, with just enough chocolate pieces, make a sweet breakfast bread or snack.


  • 2 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, chilled (don't substitute)
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Icing (see recipe below)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt.
  2. Cut in butter. Stir in chocolate. Mix egg and milk; add to dry mixture. Stir till just moistened. Form into a ball.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead for 12 to 15 strokes or till nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2- to 3-inch cutter or cut into squares. Place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake the scones in a 375 degree F oven 15 to 18 minutes or until golden. Remove; cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  5. Mix together the icing. Drizzle over scones. Serve warm. Makes 12 servings.



  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 - 3 teaspoons milk


  1. In mixing bowl, mix powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in 1 tablespoon milk. Add more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until it's a drizzling consistency.
