Double Chocolate Orange Scones

Adapted from Pillsbury

2 cups flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup chocolate pieces
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1 teaspoon vanilla
Topping:
1 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoons sugar

1. In a large bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter until the size of small peas. Stir in chocolate pieces.
2. In a small bowl mix together milk, orange marmalade, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a fork until soft dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a circle.
3. The circle should be about 1" thick and 8" wide. Cut into 8-10 wedges and place wedges onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle over some sugar.
4. Bake scones at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until firm and hollow sounding when gently tapped on the bottom. Let cool 10 minutes on the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Best served with a cup of tea!
