Mini Caramel Coconut Chip Scones

Little bits of chocolate, baked into a whole wheat scone, glazed with a caramel glaze and topped with some toasted coconut. Mini Caramel Coconut Chip Scones are a great pairing to your morning coffee routine! Relaxing on the weekend? Getting ready for work and on your way out the door? Either way a hot cup of coffee flavored with International Delight Simply Pure Coffee Creamer and one of these Mini Caramel Coconut Chip Scones are bound to make your morning much more satisfying!

Mini Caramel Coconut Chip Scones

The first thing I do every morning when I get out of bed is head to the kitchen and make my coffee. I am up very early every morning, usually around 4 am! I spend about an hour with my coffee and laptop, then head down to the elliptical where I spend just a little over an hour, hoping to rev my metabolism up with some exercise!

On my lunch break I will either walk the mall or walk the two story Walmart just down the road from where I work. Yes! I said two stories. During one of my recent walk/shops at Walmart, this new International Delight Simply Pure Creamer caught my eye in the Dairy Section. In checking out the packaging for the creamer, I noticed that the ingredient list included real milk, cream, and sugar which is something I like to read – real ingredients! There are three flavors – Vanilla, Caramel and Hazelnut. I always gravitate towards caramel anything so that was the flavor that came home with me!

One morning, while drinking a cup of coffee with my new creamer, I thought wouldn’t a mini scone  be delicious with this?! Something with a little chocolate, coconut and caramel to be exact! Grumpy and I both love those flavors together, so I set out to make these scones.

I wanted to make mini scones, just because they are so cute! Two of these mini scones makes one serving. Once baked, the exterior is a little crispy and so delicious with the caramel glaze and toasted coconut topping.

It is best to dip the scone bites in the glaze while they are still slightly warm, and top them immediately with some toasted coconut flakes while the glaze is still wet. Like most scone recipes, these are best enjoyed the same day they are made. If they sit for longer than a day, they will tend to become soggy.

    I love scones, but these are just taking them to the next level and beyond!

    It is fantastic you can walk to work. We live out in the middle of nowhere so that isn’t an option. I would consider walking quite a distance to get these delicious scones though.

    Mmmm, chocolate chip scones are such a good idea. I made them once a few years ago and keep meaning to make them again – always so many things to try though!

    I love scones! And I love the idea of making them mini…we all know that mini just tastes better! I love my morning cuppa joe, and I’m thinking these scones might need to make an appearance next to my coffee soon. Thanks for sharing! #client
