Double Chocolate Scones with Mocha Cream Cheese Filling

Today, I’m sharing a recipe for Double Chocolate Scones with Mocha Cream Cheese filling. A not so healthy recipe, but an oh so yummy one!

You might say, this is my Valentine’s Day recipe, but these scones are good any day of the year!

Chocolate cake-like scones with chocolate chips in every bite and a light, creamy mocha filling with a dollop of whipped cream.

Are you drooling yet?

I love scones because they’re so easy to make and you can’t mess them up. You can whip up this recipe in about 30 minutes.

They’re amazingly delicious with the filling, but you can also serve them warm with only butter or cream cheese. And they’re also yummy warmed up with no topping. Yes, they’re just simply delicious!

These scones make the perfect breakfast for Valentine’s Day since everyone loves chocolate. And what better way to start your day than with a little taste of chocolate, coffee, and cream!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
