5 TBS butter cut into pieces
2 cups self-rising flour
1 tbs superfine sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup milk
All-purpose flour for dusting
Preheat the oven to 425F
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the butter and rub it in to your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar and chocolate chips - then stir in enough milk to bring the mixture into a soft dough ball.
Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface until a round flat ball is formed - and the dough is flattened to about 1 inch thick. Place the dough onto the lined pan, and carefully score the dough with a pizza cutter to however many scones you'd like.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until risen and golden. Depending on how thick the scones are, this may take longer - mine were thick and took about 20 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Pull apart the scones and enjoy!
