During the Christmas season, I love everything with a bit of chocolate and peppermint. These peppermint scones are rich, chocolate-y and filled with chunks of peppermint bark, melted into perfection! They’re drizzled with white chocolate and mint candies for more peppermint flavor! These are the perfect chocolate scones to enjoy with a cup of hot coffee or mocha. This recipe makes a large batch of scones so you’ll be able to enjoy them for a few days. They’re also great to give away as a treat or enjoy on Christmas morning!

How to Make Chocolate Scones
Making these chocolate peppermint scones is super easy when using a food processor! Place the dry ingredients and the cold butter into a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form. If you don’t have a food processor, you can still make this recipe! Just use a pastry blender or two large forks to cut the cold butter into the flour. Transfer the flour and butter mixture into a large bowl.
Next, add in the wet ingredients and gently mix the batter until a soft dough forms. The dough should be slightly sticky; try not to overwork the dough, otherwise it will become too dense. Fold in the chopped peppermint bark and then chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. When done baking and cooling, drizzle with melted white chocolate and add more crushed peppermint candy on top for more peppermint flavor! Keep the scones stored in an airtight container.
