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 makes 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. Be sure to check out these make-ahead Cranberry Scones too.

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.

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.

This recipe not only has the creamer in the scone batter but also a wonderful glaze.

Here is two wonderful holiday inspired recipes to use flavored creamers. I have also made Peppermint Brownies with flavored creamer in the past.

  1. thanks Mike, yes its always nice to use the natural ingredients, this makes a great short cut.

  2. I love hazelnuts, chocolate (gianduia!!) and scones. Not a fan of commercial creamers, though. I realize this recipe seems to be a promotion for that product, but I’ll probably substitute with real cream and hazelnut essence.
