Toffee Scones for Two

I can't remember the last time I made scones. The only thing I have baked since last spring were birthday cupcakes. I had a bag of Heath English Toffee Bits that kept taunting me every time I opened that particular drawer. I finally gave in and decided to make some scones with them. The thing about the toffee bits, they can turn rancid really fast. Make sure you smell them before you use them. If they don't smell good either return them for another bag or throw them away. If they are rancid, anything you bake with them in it will be ruined. Not fun.

I have a basic scone recipe that I have used often and just add spices, flavorings or add-ins to change them up. This is considered a small batch because it uses only 2 cups of flour and you can expect to get 6-8 medium sized scones depending on the size. I like to make them on the smaller size.

The recipe is here ~

Yes, I decided to drizzle four of the scones with chocolate!

And yes, I dipped the bottom side in chocolate too! Don't worry, they appear larger in the picture than they actually are.

The other eight are in the freezer waiting for the next coffee talk.
