Salted Caramel White Chocolate Mocha Scones

Hello, Salted Caramel White Chocolate Mocha Scone goodness!

Salted Caramel White Chocolate Mocha Scones
 
It has been a while since I used caramel and salt together.
Last weekend I made lots of cupcakes and made these
I could eat the whole bowl of frosting by myself with a spoon…
yup, it’s that good:-)
Ever since last weekend I have been wanting
to make something else with caramel and salt.
Fast forward to earlier today, when my husband asks for scones.
Now he is usually a very picky baked good eater.
(that translates into boring eater:-)
I love to add all sorts of things and make something different each time
and he likes to have plain stuff.
So, I started giving him some options of ones
that I have on my many lists.
It was a NO to everything I suggested.

All of a sudden he surprises me by saying how about salted caramel mocha scones?
Really??? I wanted to say,
“Who are you? And what did you do with my boring treat husband?”
But instead I zipped my lips and quickly made these
yummy scones before he changed his mind and requested vanilla.
These scones were the perfect thing to quench my caramel and salt cravings.
And I absolutely love anything with coffee in it.
(if you don’t like coffee, just leave it out and enjoy the caramel and salt flavor.
The white chocolate drizzle and sea salt gives it
just the perfect sweet and salty mix.

Salted Caramel White Chocolate Mocha Scones

Mocha scones with caramel bits are topped with a white chocolate drizzle and sea salt...you won't be able to say no.

Ingredients

2/3 c. heavy cream
2 Tbsp. instant coffee
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
6 Tbsp. butter, chilled
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 c. caramel bits
1/2 white chocolate chips, melted
2 tsp. sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a glass mug, heat the cream for 1 minute in the microwave. Stir in the instant coffee and set aside. Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. With a fork, cut in the butter until it creates small pea like pieces. Make a hole in the center of the flour and pour in the egg, vanilla and coffee cream. Stir until mixed thoroughly. Stir in caramel bits gently.
  2. The dough will be very sticky, so use a spoon to scoop out 12 scones. Press the dough rounds down until they are about 3 inches wide. Bake at 400* for 18 minutes. The caramel melts all over,so immediately transfer to wire racks to cool. Drizzle with melted white chocolate and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Store in a sealed container.
