chocolate biscuits

I am not sure if these are chocolate scones, biscuits or somewhere in between. What I do know is that they’re fluffy, crusty and studded with chocolate chips. Spread with a bit of Nutella or chocolate ganache- they’re divine, darling!


So… lately I have been in a mood. Not much in the mood to cook, bake, grill, fry, saute… you name it.

But… we still ate: roasted chicken with new potatoes, wet burritos, grilled cheese and tomatoes, cookies..chicken salad sandwiches…yes, it was a feast-ful week. Despite my mood.


Maybe I spent too much time in my kitchen painting it last week? I managed to bake a few things, but the mood wasn’t there.

I lost my mood and need to find it.

Anyway, what I have felt like doing is changing. Lots of things.  Does that ever happen to you?

Maybe it’s my biological clock? Oh dear, not that again… I hit snooze a while back and … oh dear… not this again.

Hmmm. I will worry about that tomorrow.

So- are these scones, biscuits or cookies? I can’t tell.

Maybe they’re all 3?

The best part is- they are super easy to make.  And, that works well… especially if you’re not in the mood, you know.;)

Have an awesome day!
