Directions

For scone dough: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, Dutch Cocoa Powder,Black Onyx Chocolate Sugar, baking powder, Mayan Sea Salt, and butter on low speed in electric mixer until crumb-like. Whisk eggs and cream together and drizzle into flour-butter with mixer on low speed. Mix until just combined then add chocolate chips until just mixed in. Turn dough out onto floured working surface. Roll dough into a 3/4-inch thick slab. Use a 3-inch round biscuit cutter to cut circular scones and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

For egg wash and frosting: Brush tops of scones with the egg and sprinkle generously with Black Onyx Chocolate Sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 min. until golden and slightly firm to the touch. Remove from oven and cool for at least 10 min. Whisk powdered sugar with Natural Peppermint Extract and water until smooth. Drizzle or spread frosting over scones then sprinkle each with crushed peppermint candy.
