S'mores Scones

I have been on a s'mores kick lately. Okay, maybe it's not a kick as much as a love for this flavor combo. I mean, where can you go wrong with chocolate and marchmallow melted together between two pieces of graham cracker? That's right. You can't go wrong. It's delicious. So on one of my hunts for s'mores related recipes, I came across this one at Baked Perfection. It looked simple enough compared to other scone recipes. There aren't any eggs. No serious method. Just combine all of the dry stuff and mix in the cream and ta-da! Scone dough.
When I was planning my tea party, I knew I had to have these. It was one of the first recipes I decided on making. What a better way to try a new recipe than when friends are coming over? They'll tell you their honest impressions of it.
And the recipe was great. Everyone liked it, especially my hubby (who wasn't at the tea party, don't worry). The crushed graham crackers gave the scones a delightful texture as well as added flavor. I can't think of a better way to incorporate graham crackers into this recipe!
I changed up the recipe from Baked Perfection just a bit to make it easier for myself. Check it out!

S'mores Scones (makes about 15)
1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/4 c. finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
3 tbl. sugar
1 tbl. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. chocolate chips
3/4 c. mini marshmallows
1 1/4 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. chocolate chips, melted (optional)
powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 400F and grease a cookie sheet.
Mix together the first seven ingredients in a bowl. Pour in the heavy cream and mix it together JUST until combined.  Using your hands, roll the dough into 1 1/2-2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. The dough will be sticky, so you can flour your hands if you like.
Bake for 9-11 minutes. The scones will be beginning to brown. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on a baking rack. Once cool, drizzle with chocolate and sprinkle powdered sugar over top to make it look nice. You can see that I didn't do that. I ran out of time.
