Keeping in the scones mentality, I had initially planned to make pecan scones but while searching for the recipe, found a different one for orange and chocolate scones. Chocolate--end of story. Dark chocolate has me sold and orange is an added bonus. These bad boys were whipped up in a matter of minutes and in true Lemon fashion, in my haste, I messed it up. However, they still remained delicious.
Scones aren't extraordinarily sweet and this recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons of sugar so the dark chocolate adds the tasty sweetness I was seeking. Orange may sound like an odd combination but if you remember back to Christmas time, those orange chocolate candies appear (they look like an orange but are made of chocolate and have a citrusy flavor) in stores.
Time to get your hands dirty
You can see the chunks or orange zest and chocolate
Golden brown and delicious!
