Summer days filled with sunshine, the chirp of the birds and the flowers swaying in the breeze. Oh, and those warm Summer nights and the fireflies, stars and campfires! Who doesn't love a campfire. Roasting marshmallows, telling stories and singing songs that you don't quite remember all of the words for.
The best part, though....S'mores! As a kid, I thought I died and went to heaven the first time I had one of those sticky, gooey chocolatey treats. Even now, the smell of marshmallows, chocolate and campfires takes me back to my childhood.
Last week, I was able to bake up all of those memories into a scone. I will tell you, when that oven opened up and the room filled with the enticing aroma of toasty marshmallows and chocolate, I could almost hear my siblings and I giggling with pleasure as our fingers and faces were covered in sticky marshmallow.
The Scone Goddess Fresh Baked Scones Cottage offered up this unique scone last week and they were a hit! I think we all enjoy reliving those Summer nights. My gift to you is the happiness we all knew as children, where our biggest problems were how to stay out longer and get out of taking a shower at the end of the day. (I mean, the lake cleaned us, right?)
So, cheers to Summer! May this S'mores Scone recipe bring you joy!
1 Vanilla Scone Mix by The Scone Goddess
1 + 1/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup graham cracker bits- crush the crackers, but, leave them a bit chunky.
Add mix, chocolate chips, and marshmallows to the bowl. Give a quick stir to combine the ingredients. Fold in 1 cup of heavy cream. Mixture will still be dry and crumbly. Fold in the graham cracker bits and the remainder of the cream. Form into a 5 inch disc. Cut into eight triangles and separate. Bake 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown. (Oven times vary.)
Eat these scones warm for the full effect!
