Chocolate Chip Peppermint Scones

When my son was here at Christmas,  he was looking through a cookbook I had sitting out on the counter, and found these scones. The chocolate/peppermint combination is one of his favorites, so he asked me if I would make them.  Needless to say, I never was able to fit them in until now.  I thought they would work well for Valentine's Day too, especially with the heart biscuit cutter.
I was happy to see that they kept their shape after baking:)   These scones were very easy to make and came together in a snap! I hope Jesse and his family enjoy eating them as much as I enjoyed making them (and eating one:)).  Making these was also a great way to use up the last of my candy cane stash. The candy canes added just the right amount of Valentine red to the hearts.

The Chocolate Chip Peppermint Scones recipe can be found HERE on Barbara Beery Kid's Cooking! Barbara is the author of the cookbook which includes this recipe, Pink Princess Cookbook, and I just discovered that she has a blog.  I can't wait to check it out;  you should too!
Thanks Barbara for the yummy recipe!

If you need a quick, sweet treat for Valentine's Day, look no further...These scones are sure to make any Valentine feel loved!

  3. Those scones are so pretty, and just right for Valentine's Day.

    I have to tell you - I had your blog open and had to leave to do something else. When I got back, my teenage daughter was sitting at the computer scrolling through your old posts, oohing and aahing over how cute everything was!
