I have this bag of baking supplies that I hide out of sight in the hall coat closet. My logic is questionable since I (1) hid it, and (2) it’s been discovered. It contains everything from Peanut M&M’s to Hershey’s Kisses to Ferrero Rocher, plus assorted other essentials like chocolate chips, shredded coconut, marshmallows, and Heath toffee bits.
Today, on my day off, I turned to that coat closet treasure with the intention of cleaning it out.
Instead I made S’Mores Scones.
I don’t know. Wasn’t on the radar. Too good not to share. I made S’Mores Scones that were fantabulous, especially still warm from the oven. I’ll be sharing the love with these at the office tomorrow.
As we begin to wind down from Summer Thyme, there are some recipes that can bring us back in less than 30 minutes. S’Mores Scones can now be one of those recipes.
I followed the basics from my Savory Caprese Scones recipe, that I adapted from Joy the Baker. Click HERE for some Scone making tips that yield delicious pillowy, tender results every time. Savory or sweet.
Recipe inspiration…Chocolate chips, mini-marshmallows, and
graham crackers vanilla cream wafers. I was in my favorite x-mas jammies and wasn’t about to leave the house. Vanilla cream wafers, leftover from this Ferrero Rocher Cake recipe made a suitable substitution. Take note, scones are forgiving and allow for ingredient creativity.
