These delicious choc chip scones are perfect for an afternoon treat and sometimes I pop them into the oven when my kids go to bed so they can have them fresh in their lunch boxes the next day.

Notes

  • Adding choc chips to these golden scones brings them to a new level.
  • They are especially delicious when served warm as those choc chips burst in your mouth.
  • The resting period is very important to the lightness of this recipe and the fact that there is very little kneading.
