This week I baked some scones. I’ve had a taste for chocolate chips scones for a few weeks but never got around to making them. Well this week I finally gave in and decided to give it a try. I found a recipe on pinterest and adapted it based on the ingredients I had on hand. One thing I just hate is not having buttermilk on hand when I need it and I just don’t use it enough to always buy it. My husband jokes with me that he thinks it looks like sour milk anyway so why do I worry about it spoiling. LOL! Needless to say the recipe I found called for buttermilk and I didn’t have it. I know I can make a substitute (mix one cup of milk with 3 teaspoons of lemon juice or white vinegar and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes) buttermilk but I just didn’t want to so I used what I had.
I had brought this to make some green velvet cupcakes and decided to use it in the scones just to see how it would taste.
I got these on clearance at Target after Christmas and I figured they would go perfect with the Irish Coffee Creamer. So that’s how I ended up with these lucky scones. Lucky because I was able to eat them without any interruptions from my toddler. Trust me it seems that boy has a food radar, as soon so I go to eat he wants to be held or played with or something else to make me put it down. #Joysofmotherhood
These are the scones before I put them in the oven. I put sugar on mines but you don’t have to do that at all.
I hope you give these lucky mint chocolate chip scones a try and you don’t have to just make them around St. Patty’s Day either.
