Chocolate toffee scones

Scones, light, crumbly, flaky, buttery, and filled with goodies. For this recipe, I used chocolate-covered toffee chips and topped them off with a chocolate glaze and powdered sugar. To save time I used Bisquick baking mix.

Yield: 8 scones

Ingredients:

2 cups Bisquick mix

2 tbsp. sugar

1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk

1/2 cup butter

3 tbsp milk+ more if needed when mixing

flour- for dusting

1 tsp. almond extract

Icing-

powdered sugar 1/2 cup

1 tbsp milk.

chocolate syrup 1 tsp.

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375*F

In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients together- Bisquick mix and sugar together.

Cut the cold butter into small dice (pea size) and add to the dry mix.

Rub the butter into the dry mix with your hands until it’s coated well in the mix. Add in the toffee chips and mix lightly.

In a small bowl add the egg and egg yolk with the almond extract and milk. Add to the dry mix and lightly stir with a fork until it starts to come together. Dust your table/surface with flour and scoop out the dough. Lightly kneed until a soft dough forms, similar to cookie dough.

Note-If it’s too crumbly when mixing add more milk or water. If it becomes too wet add a little flour

Once you have a ball of dough lightly press down and flatten it to a circle about an inch thick. You can flour a rolling pin to spread out the dough. Once you have about an 8-inch circle, use a knife or bench scraper and press into the dough about halfway but don’t cut all the way through. This gives the dough a chance to rise into the classic wedge shape. Divide into 8 pieces- divide it right down the middle, and halfway across, then diagonally like an x and you have 8 sections.

Next place on a lined baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat and bake for 12-15 minutes, just until slightly golden around the edges. Take out of the oven and cool on wire racks if you have them or a plate.

Next, make the icing-

In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, milk, and chocolate syrup. Mix with a fork, if it is too runny ass more powdered sugar.

When the scones are slightly cooled, cut out wedge slices, drizzle the scones with the icing, dust them with powdered sugar and enjoy.

Nosh Recap

The last two years have been a rollercoaster and whirlwind of progress. My now-husband and I moved to a small town, got married the next year, bought a cafe, and have been going non-stop ever since. I originally started this blog back in 2016 to organize my recipes and turn them into cookbooks which I have. Now 5 years later and with four cookbooks out on Amazon, along with meal planners, and journals I’m ready to make something new.

I’m back at it and ready to write even more. Working at our cafe has been such an amazing experience so far. We’re proud to be a part of the community and happy to have a special place of our own. This blog and creating new recipes are still a big part of me. I’ve missed it and am ready to jump back in. So stay tuned for new recipes and cookbooks to come from Nosh with Chef Julie!

This blog will still hold all the author interviews I have done in the past. Going forward I may bring them back and have new author interviews from time to time. I’m trying to find the balance between running soon-to-be two restaurants, this blog, being married, taking care of our home, and helping our community is a challenge, to say the least. I will update news and recipes when I can. Take care for now, until next time~J

Blogger Spotlight- Interview with Food Blogger Mateja Brescak

Let us know a little about yourself and how we can connect with you via website, blog, books, and social media sites.

Hi, my name is Mateja and you can find me under PassionSpoon on Twitter (my favorite) https://twitter.com/PassionSpoon1, on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/passionspoon/, Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PassionSpoon1 or LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/mateja-brescak/. On my website, you’ll find delicious recipes all written and cooked by me(photos included). I love to cook and bake. Therefore, I decided to start this blog about 4 years ago. In the beginning, it wasn’t easy and still today I’m learning new things. But I am enjoying it!

What is the name of your blog or book and how did you get started?

A couple of years ago I moved to Hamburg. Then, somehow I had this idea to start a food blog. I love to cook, bake, create new recipes and make people happy (also with food). That’s how I created PassionSpoon. (https://passionspoon.com )

What is your favorite food? 

Hmm, my favorite food. This isn’t easy at all. I’ll say pasta, meat, salads….oh, no I can’t pick just one. My favorite food is food. I love everything and I try everything.

What foods do you crave all the time?

I crave mostly savory food. However, I never say no to sweet things. I am also a bit of a sweet tooth. 

What is your favorite comfort food?

My favorite comfort food is a thick bean soup with some chunks of meat in it. Oh, lovely.

If you could learn how to make any food what would it be?

Oh yes, that would be the macaroons. I just can’t deliver those. But, this year I start with a new path, as a patisserie and I will learn that for sure. Can’t wait!

What is your favorite thing about being a blogger, writer, or author?

I don’t need any excuse to talk about food all the time. Wink. I love to spend my time in the kitchen, to enjoy all of the lovely food with my friends and my boyfriend and to share my love for food. 

What do you like to do for fun?

I love to draw (since little), to sketch, to paint, to read (at the time I am reading Inferno from Dan Brown. Yeah, I have it in three different languages) , of course, I like to learn new languages (the last two year I am improving in my German) and I love to watch movies (we have quite a big collection). 

If you could have super powers what would they be? 

To never ever get ill.

What projects are you working on right now?

My goal this year is to slowly update my first recipes. The beginnings are not easy and most of the times we don’t know how to do the things right.

Any other information you would like to include to our readers?

I hope you’ll jump on my website from time to time. You can leave a comment, new recipe ideas. I love to try new things. Or just to say hello. I will definitely wave back. Wink.

Blogger Spotlight-Interview with Food and Garden Blogger Becky Tiffany

Let us know a little about yourself and how we can connect with you via website, blog, books, and social media sites.

Hi! My name is Becky and you can find me over at SunnyFarmhouse on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/sunnyfarmhouse/ or my blog at www.sunnyharmhouse.com.  I have been on Instagram for a little while sharing food and gardening ideas. My website is brand new so I am still trying to make it what I envision. I’m learning and hope to have a fun place to keep track of my favorite recipes.

What is your favorite comfort food?


I am mostly a vegetarian and I try to eat “clean” and plant-based as much as possible. I also love to bake desserts for my family!

What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is most definitely pizza. As a family, we make a wood-fired pizza in our backyard on Sunday nights. Making pizza and baking 1-2 at a time is a great way to extend family dinner time on Sundays. Plus it forces the kids to sit and socialize!

If you could learn how to make any food what would it be?

We are always trying & testing all things pizza but I would love to perfect several styles of pizza!  I have 5 kids so I’m always receiving requests for various toppings and flavors of pizza … Thai with peanut sauce, mushroom, Margarita, tostada, pepperoni, etc, etc, etc.

What projects are you working on right now?


Every year I like to set a cooking goal for myself. It forces me to stretch, learn, try new things, and step out of my comfort zone.  My goal for 2018 was to make pizza every week.  In 2019, I made a pie each month.  For 2020, I am working on all things sourdough. It’s amazing how comfortable you can become with a new technique. Likewise, when you set a goal to work on it throughout the year.

Any other information you would like to include to our readers?


I hope you’ll stop by to visit me on my website & Instagram account.  If you do, send me a quick hello!  Happy cooking!!

Thank you Becky for a lovely interview!
