 Ingredients List

  • For scones:
  • 2 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 packet instant coffee granules
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 c. cold or frozen unsalted butter
  • 3/4 c. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c. chopped dried tart cherries
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 c. + 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • coarse sugar for sprinkling
  • For glaze:
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-2 tbsp. water


For scones:
In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, instant coffee, and salt.
Grate the butter into the flour mixture using a grater, and mix until it resembles coarse crumbles.
Stir in chocolate chips and cherries until evenly distributed.
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and 1/2 c. cream.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and pour the egg mixture into the well. Mix until just combined.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead dough 6-8 times, then form it into a large ball.
Place onto a greased baking sheet, and carefully flatten the ball into a large disk, about 1-inch thick.
Cut into 8 wedges, and gently pull the wedges slightly apart.
Brush each scone lightly with cream, and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-16 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and scones appear set.
While the scones are cooling, prepare the glaze.

For glaze:
Combine all glaze ingredients in a medium bowl, and whisk til smooth, adding water as needed to achieve desired consistency. It shouldn't be too runny - we want it to be thick enough to stay on the scone without too much dripping off.
Dunk the warm (but not hot) scones in the glaze, and allow a few minutes for the glaze to set. Enjoy!
