These delicious Peanut Chocolate Scones are inspired by Choc-Nut, which is a delicious Filipino peanut candy. I remembered eating this decadent, crumbly peanut snack in the Philippines.
I don’t know what’s happening but as of today, there’s a shortage of Choc-Nut in the Filipino stores that I frequent.
I’ve heard the same thing from my fellow Filipina communities, saying they’re having a tough time finding Choc-Nut at their Filipino stores too. What could be causing this?
Anyway, I was hesitant to open up my one pack of Choc-Nut for this recipe, so I decided to create these scones using toasted peanuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
If you don’t have access to an Asian or Filipino grocery store nearby, using peanuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips will suffice!
I used the Master Scone Recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction and added a few tweaks to make these delicious scones: https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/scones-recipe/
Make sure you keep all your ingredients COLD at all times for a tender, yet crumbly scone! I highly recommend freezing your butter for this recipe.
