One thing about the early introduction of the holidays I don’t mind is the reappearance of flavored coffee creamers. Most of the year I am only use vanilla creamer. However, come November I notice all the fun Holiday flavors from International Delight® at Walmart. This year I noticed two flavors I had not tried before International Delight® Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer and International Delight® Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee Creamer. While I was excited about adding them to both hot cocoa and my morning coffee, the idea of scones came to mind. Finding a bag of hazelnuts in my freezer from an Italian Cookie I made before, I knew I wanted to make a Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Scones Recipe.
Scones might seem complicated but really are a simple breakfast recipe that also make great holiday gifts. Once you make scones correctly, changing up the recipe flavors is easy and it can be quite addicting to create new combinations. This day my coffee cup had to step aside and my oven was going to get a chance to smell the yumminess of the Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee creamer. These scones are filled with hazelnuts, dark chocolate chips and Chocolate Hazelnut Creamer.
The trick to a good scone recipe, is making sure your butter is cold. This keeps your scone fluffy and delicious.
You want a flour mixture to resemble small crumbs.
Now add your wet ingredients. Yes, here is the first place you will find our flavored creamers at work.
Mix until well blended then shape into a circle and cut into 8 slices. Bake until browned on the bottom.
This recipe not only has the creamer in the scone batter but also a wonderful glaze. Once they are baked and still a little warm dip them in a combination of confectionery sugar and Chocolate Hazelnut creamer.
Allow them to cool completely. The glaze will drip off a little so make sure you have something to collect the extra glaze.
Here is a close up after they have cooled.
If you are making this Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Scones Recipe for a brunch you can make them smaller than the eight I made.
To make our chocolate experience even more wonderful, we made some hot cocoa and added some chocolate peppermint creamer. Top it with some whipped cream and you have a very happy warm beverage.
Here is two wonderful holiday inspired recipes to use flavored creamers. I have also made Peppermint Brownies with flavored creamer in the past.
Which would you want to try first the Scones or the Peppermint Mocha Hot Cocoa?
