I have had a packet of scone mix in my cupboard for months now. We aren’t really scone fans so I didn’t want to just make it for the sake of making it.
Then I received this recipe from the Sasko team and knew it was the perfect thing to use the scone mix for. It is also a quick and easy recipe that you can make with the kids. You can also add pretty much anything you want to. I think Smarties would work nicely.
I used 2 slabs of chocolate instead of choc-chips because choc-chips really are just so expensive. I used a plain slab and a top deck slab, just chopped up. You could really use any type of chocolate and any kind of nuts for the topping.
