Strawberry Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones

Strawberry chocolate chip buttermilk scones | season is here, and I couldn’t be happier. I made these sweet tender strawberry and chocolate chip scones for the chocolate party that I have participated in the last few months. Roxana from Roxana’s Home Baking started this party because of her love for chocolate and each month we are given a secret ingredient to use in the recipe. April’s secret ingredient is buttermilk and my decision to make these scones did not come easily.   I had thought I was going to make a chocolate buttermilk pie for Easter but that didn’t happen, I ended up going out of town for most of the weekend and getting home in time for church and dinner hosted at my house.  Then, I thought about making homemade buttermilk biscuits with chocolate gravy since I do live in the South and biscuits and gravy are a staple here, that didn’t happen either.  In the end my love for scones won out and strawberries goes so well with chocolate.

Did I mention that I’m in love with scones? I have only made two recipes for my blog so it was time to add a third. I am really pleased with how these strawberry chocolate chip scones turned out, the buttermilk made them tender and the crumb was moist so that each bite melted in your mouth.  I sprinkled the top of the scones with large sugar crystals  before baking them for added crunch since the hubby likes them like that.  Then I made a glaze with powdered sugar, milk and a little homemade strawberry jam and like they say “that was the icing on the cake”.  My husband was eating his scone while I took photos of the the others and he wasn’t swooning over them so I was a little worried, I asked how he liked them and he said “oh, they are good”.  I kept on doing my photos but was worried these were not as good as our favorite blueberry scones.  Finally, my turn came to dig into my cooling scone…yes you got it I was in scone heaven, savouring every bite and eating slowly and deliberately :).Strawberry chocolate chip buttermilk scones | you are interested in joining the party then please do, we chocolate lover’s need to stick together.  The chocolate party is headed up by Roxana’s Home Baking and the rules are easy:


  1. The recipe must be a new one.
  2. The recipe must include the secret ingredient.
  3. Include a link back to this post or the Chocolate party page. Optional, add the Chocolate Party logo in your blog post or on your sidebar.

Ooohhhh….I love poofy scones,especially when both chocolate and strawberries are involved! But most of all buttermilk…it’s the secret ingredient to moist, delicious scones, with a bit of a tang! I already know how much I am going to love this!

These scones look so good, Suzanne! Love the strawberry and chocolate combo!

We were on the same wavelength, Suzanne. 🙂 I just pulled out some strawberry scones from the oven (I opted out of choc chips at the last minute and added an almond component instead). Mine didn’t look nearly as pretty as yours. Love these. 🙂

sounds wonderful – might try fresh strawberries in these and I usually top scones w/Turbinado sugar and no glaze

Chocolate buttermilk pie sounds wonderful, but these scones look fabulous!! Strawberry, buttermilk, and chocolate – talk about a tasty trio! {Love the photos!)

Pure Brilliance!! I signed up for the Choc party a few months ago and haven’t made it yet. But I’m LOVING what you did here. I could eat scones nearly every day and never tire of them, buttermilk is perfect. Love the addition of the strawberries!
Ok… I’m totally embarrassed to admit that I put the number “5” in for your captcha of 4-1… it’s been a long day…!

Among all the breakfast pastries, scones have to be my #1 favorite. Your chocolate and strawberry combo is something I’ve never tried and looking at abundant strawberries and chocolate in these, I cannot just keep staring at them. Look soooooooooo delicious. I bet all of your family enjoyed these scones… Jealous! 😀

Good Monday morning, Suzanne! What can possibly be any better together than strawberries and chocolate? Except – when those lovely ingredients are added to a beautiful scone? These scones are wonderful, and a brilliant addition to the chocolate party! xox

These are GORGEOUS and sound fabulous! I’m imagining chocolate covered strawberries ……..

12 Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts April 8, 2013 at 3:23 pm

I am loving that I can find strawberries again!! These scones look incredible; what a great idea for the chocolate party!

13 Lisa {AuthenticSuburbanGourmet} April 8, 2013 at 9:33 pm

So loving that I am seeing recipes with strawberries in them – means Spring is in the air and Summer not too far behind. Yeah! These look delish. Perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. I must make these. Have a great week.

I love using strawberries in scones! These scones sound perfect!

17 Patty April 9, 2013 at 10:36 pm

Beautiful strawberry scones Suzanne!! I would love to be in scone heaven, if only for a short time…
I think adding this scone recipe to your blog was a very good idea;-)

18 Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust April 10, 2013 at 8:47 am

These are gorgeous!

19 Erin @ Texanerin Baking April 10, 2013 at 12:36 pm

Strawberry season is there?! Are you kidding me?! Ugh. I am SO jealous. Strawberry season arrives over here in June. 🙁 I’m happy that you get to enjoy them already, though! And these scones look amazing. I don’t normally like baking strawberries but this… this I could totally do!

20 Lora @cakeduchess April 10, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Are strawberry season is really nice. I need to take the kids to go picking before they’re all gone. Your scones look so nice, Suzanne. I like the idea of chocolate with the berries and the buttermilk, yes!:)

21 Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking April 10, 2013 at 10:20 pm

I love scones! They are one of my family favorite Saturday morning breakfast! I can’t wait for strawberry picking time to make these!
Thanks for bringing them to this month ChocolateParty

22 Kathy April 11, 2013 at 5:22 pm

These look scrumptious!! Interesting that you use frozen strawberries!

23 Suzanne April 12, 2013 at 9:37 pm

Kathy the frozen strawberries work better for folding into the dough and don’t get mushed up plus the added cold chill helps the turn out better when baked.

24 Nancy @ gottagetbaked April 25, 2013 at 7:04 pm

Wow, what gorgeous scones! I’ve never baked with frozen strawberries for – you’re making me want to run out and buy a bag. Then I could make these scones and also make something for next month’s Chocolate Party (chocolate and strawberries together – can’t wait!).

Oh how yummy looking…I love scones for breakfast or for snack to go. Very delicious as always!
