This Toffee Scones recipe is the perfect thing to enjoy with a cup of steaming coffee. The sweet, crunchy toffee is delicious in the soft scones.

Toffee Scones Recipe (1)I’ve always had a thing for toffee. Growing up, Skorbars were one of my favorite candy bars. My mom used to make Almond Rocca (something I’ve got to try making one of these days) and I loved it. You know how women get cravings when they are pregnant? Well, I remember craving Skorbars during one of my pregnancies. One day, we stopped to get gas and when Brian ran into pay (this was back in the “old days” when pay-at-the-pump wasn’t always available) he asked me if I wanted anything. I asked for a Skorbar and he came out with a Heath bar since the gas station didn’t sell Skorbars. And if you know anything about the cravings of a pregnant woman, you will understand why that didn’t work for me. So, my wonderful husband found me a Skorbar from another gas station. I can’t remember if it was that same day or soon afterward, but I know the whole ordeal was a little mind-boggling for him. I’m not sure what the difference is between Skorbars and Heath bars. They are both owned by Hershey’s and they are both toffee covered with chocolate. Do you prefer one over the other?

So, going along with my love for toffee, I decided to add toffee to another one of my favorites: scones. The soft, fluffy texture of the scones and the sweet crunch of toffee were perfect for enjoyingwith a cup of coffee.

    Not quite enough flour, they did not hold together at all. I’d add flour as needed to make sure they’re a solid dough before scoring and baking. These did not turn out well.

    I’m a toffee lover too….although I couldn’t tell you the difference between Skor and Heath! I’m pretty sure I love them both! What a delicious idea for scones – a great way to wake up in the morning!


  3. Jocelyn says

    These look delicious, and I’d like to make them. Can regular cream cheese be used in place of the whipped cream cheese? Thanks!


    • Tonia says

      Yes, I would suggest that you soften it first so that it will be easier to mix in. Happy Baking!


      • Jocelyn says

        I finally got around to making these, and they are so good! I used 1/4 cup of regular cream cheese (whisked vigorously with the egg) in place of the whipped cream cheese. Also, I found a heaping 1/2 cup of the toffee bits was the perfect sweetness for us. Thank you for a terrific recipe which my husband has already requested again.

  6. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction says
