Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Scones

Sunday marked the Hubster’s 38th birthday. In years past, we have packed up the car and spent his birthday week with family at the beach, however this year we decided to stay back and relax at home. To make his birth week extra special, I came up with a theme for each day leading up to his official birthday. On Monday, the hubs got a few of his favorite king size candy bars with a handmade card that read “You are my king.” Tuesday left him following clues all around the house leading him to a few little geeky gifts. And on Wednesday, I woke up in the wee hours of the morning to make him breakfast in bed…specifically, these decadent Chocolate Chocolate Chip Scones with homemade caramel sauce.

During the school year, I am always up and out the door by 6:45 and the Hubster is left to fend for himself for breakfast. So when summertime rolls around, I like to take the time every now and then to make him something extra special to make up for all the months of breakfast drive-thrus and microwavable biscuits.

  1. I love all the cute things you’re doing for your hubby’s birthday – sounds like me! One Christmas, my husband got a zombie Christmas card from “Zombie Claus” all throughout the month of December. That’s kind of weird, right? ;)

    These scones look awesome!
