Chocolate Chips: First, feel free to add more chocolate chips to taste! There’s never too many in my opinion. Secondly, I sometimes like to use a mix of regular and mini chocolate chips. The mini chips provide more spread of chocolate while the bigger chips provide more chocolate density in a bite. Both together really make for a chocolatey experience!!
Scone Size: If you’d like to make 12 slightly smaller scones instead of 8, split that ball of dough you shaped into 2. Pat each ball into a disk about an inch thick in height. Slice each disk into 6 pieces and proceed with the rest of the baking instructions. I like to do this slightly smaller size when the scones are served along with other foods such as for brunch or tea. It leaves more room to to sample other things, but also go back for scone seconds if desired!
