Golden brown, freshly glazed chocolate chips scones look tempting as they rest on a cooling rack. The glaze runs down the sides of some scones and small pools of vanilla glaze are seen on the pan underneath the rack.

Glazed Chocolate Chip Scones are a sweet treat I bake for my family when I want to make something special for them.

They are so simple to make, but scones always make breakfast or brunch seem a little bit fancy… they’re so gosh darn pretty on the plate!

Mother’s Day is this weekend, y’all! I can already tell you that a batch of these simple chocolate chip scones will be baked! My whole crew loves to eat these scones, but I’m certain my daughter will insist on helping me make them.

In fact, she becomes quite annoyed if I make them without her. It’s a thing as she’s been helping me make these since she was just a little bitty girl.

She says this is “our recipe” and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Let’s get to baking, baby!

 A freshly baked, glazed scone rest on a small white appetizer plate. The plate sits on a white tea towel with black strips. A cup of coffee is positioned next to the plate in a rustic white coffee cup with a black rim.

These Glazed Chocolate Chip Scones are easy to make and so delicious! They’ll add a touch of fancy to any occasion without a whole lot of fuss. They are equally as tasty without the glaze.

Ingredients

  • For the chocolate chip scones
  • 2 cups self-rising flour

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup cold, unsalted butter

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

  • 2 tablespoons milk, for brushing the tops

  • For the vanilla glaze
  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar

  • 2-3 teaspoons milk

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375°. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat and set aside. In a large bowl, mix flour and sugar together. Using a pastry cutter, mix butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course sand.
  • In another small bowl, lightly beat eggs and milk together. Next pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chips (you may have to use your hands to do this).
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it about five times or until smooth. Cut the dough in half and form each half into a six-inch circle. Cut each circle into four pieces and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Separate each piece with about two-inches between them.
  • Lightly brush the tops with milk. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until scones are very lightly browned. *see notes below
  • Cool completely on a rack. While scones are cooling, make the vanilla glaze, if desired.
  • Vanilla Glaze
  • Using a small whisk, mix powdered sugar, two teaspoons of milk and extract until smooth. If glaze is too thick, add the third teaspoon of milk to thin. Keep glaze in an air tight container until ready to use.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooled scones or use a butter knife or offset spatula to ice the tops completely.
  • Pour yourself a cup of hot tea or coffee and enjoy!

Notes

  • *Place scones under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to brown the tops, if necessary. Watch them very closely, it doesn’t take long for them to brown under the broiler.

  1. I’m a sucker for a glazed scone — these look fantastic, Marcelle!

  2. I love the combination of mildly sweet dough and sweet glaze / drizzle – so these scones are screaming my name! 🙂 Your post made me think of making similar scones but just with white chocolate and lemon zest (and maybe limoncello drizzle!)

  3. Oh, my kid is going to love these! I may have to do a batch for myself with some dark chocolate chips.

  4. I love making scones and never thought about using the broiler for a moment to get the tops a bit more brown. Great tip!

  5. I sure don’t know who could turn these down!

  6. These scones look perfect delicious! Those chips peaking out of that tender scone dough and the glaze on top. Perfect for slathering with clotted cream or dipping in my coffee.

  7. Perfect all by themselves or as an addition to a buffet or side dish for breakfast or brunch.

  8. I LOVE scones! Chocolate chip ones sound like a great choice!

  9. That glaze is perfection. Scones are so great for brunches!

  10. They look fabulous! Love the extra glaze too.
