These chocolate chip scones are not only delicious, but they come together using only 4 simple ingredients and one bowl. Plus the end result is moist and chocolatey. Scones don't get any easier than this!
Preheat oven to 425 F (218 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add flour, sugar, and chocolate chips to a large bowl and whisk to combine.
3 cups self-rising flour, ¼ cup granulated sugar, 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Add heavy cream and stir until a stiff dough forms.
1½ cup heavy cream
Turn dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Form into a disc about 8 inches in diameter.
Cut into 8 triangles.
Bake until lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Serve warm with butter and jam as desired.
Keep heavy cream in the refrigerator until ready to use. It should be added cold and not at room temperature.
After adding the heavy cream, be careful not to overmix. Overmixing can lead to tough and chewy scones. If you are concerned that you may have overmixed the dough, after shaping the dough into a disc allow it to rest for 15 to 20 minutes before baking.
You may need to knead the dough a little bit with your hands to incorporate all of the dry ingredients. Again, take care not to overwork the dough.
