An English Tea Dessert!

This recipe has always been a special treat in our house! There are a couple of things about this recipe that I wanted to bring to your attention. We haven’t been able to find “Chocolate-covered English Toffee bits” at the grocery store, so instead you can use the “Heath toffee bits” which are usually found along side the nuts and chocolate chips. As a variation, we also enjoy substituting the toffee bits and chocolate chips for Craisins (dried cranberries) which is a healthier choice!! ;-)

Over the Christmas Holidays...get yourself a good book and with your fresh warm scone and a glass of milk, coffee or tea take a seat by the quiet fire and enjoy! ~ Karisse
