Foodie Friday: Cocoa Chocolate Chip Scones

Happy Last Friday of 2012!!!

Back in November, I made a post about my little trip to Cost Plus World Market (click the link to check it out)... I mentioned that the only thing I bought was a scone mix and I also promised you guys a post all about it, so here we are! :)

I'm thinking of getting more of this and making some scones for New Year's Day breakfast -- this would be perfect with coffee, hot chocolate, or hey, tea while watching the annual Rose Parade. ;)

Sticky Fingers Scones Mix in Cocoa Chocolate Chip

Light, sweet, and crumbly, Sticky Fingers Scones Mixes are a premium English treat for breakfast, brunch, and snack time.
Sweeter than biscuits, more delicate than bread, and healthier than cake, you can enjoy yummy flavors of these all-natural scones in a snap. Simply add water, stir, and bake.

Sticky Fingers makes enjoying the authentic taste of luscious, home-baked goods as simple as possible -- short of dropping by and baking them for you!


They weren't lying when they said making these scones was simple -- it was definitely very easy to follow the directions! :)

PREP: Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease baking sheet pan.
(I used my silicone baking mat, so I skipped the greasing your baking sheet part, haha.)

MIX: In bowl, add 3/4 cup of water to entire mix.

I added a little more water as I went along because the mixture was too dry.
You can definitely add more water according to how much more you need.

Stir with fork until water is completely combined and sticky dough forms.

Confession... I used a spatula to mix it, using a fork didn't really work out too well for me, haha. ;)

By the way, it smelled amazing when I was mixing this!
The kitchen smelled of delicious chocolate scones!

BAKE: Drop heaping tablespoons of dough (about 12) onto pan.

Bake 12-15 minutes.

I put them in the oven for 13 minutes and they came out perfectly. :)

I ended up having a total of 25 little scones.

You can also make it into wedges, if you'd like...
For Wedge Style: With lightly floured hands, pat the dough into a 10 inch diameter circle in the center of prepared baking sheet pan. Score deeply with knife into 8 wedges. Bake 18-20 minutes.

They were delicious and it's just the right amount of sweetness, not overpowering at all.
They are perfect with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or even a cold glass of milk! :)

Price: $4.99
(Definitely reasonably priced! If they sold this for a higher price, I'd still get it.)
Available in: Cocoa-Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Raisin, Carrot Spice, Vanilla Chai, Raspberry, Wild Blueberry, Tart Cherry, Raspberry White Chocolate, Lemon Poppyseed, Strawberry, Cranberry, Lemon Ginger, and Original Mix.

What do you guys think? Do you make your own scones?
Which of the flavors mentioned above would you like to try the most?

I hope you are all enjoying the last days of 2012!
If I don't get to talk to you guys again before the year ends, HAPPY NEW YEAR! :D
