Cadbury Mini Egg Scones

First of all I have to thank the genius ladies from We Are Not Martha for the clever use of this Easter staple. I know I am late for Easter but I know some of you still have a bunch of candy lying around from either the holiday or the half off bin after sale :).  I (and I quote) had someone tell me “Those scones were like crack” after eating them. The base scone recipe is really delicious so feel free to pop in any other additions you please if Cadbury  is not available/your thing.

I knew as soon as I found them I had to make these in honor of my dear friend Beth, especially since she almost got beaten up for them one time (inside joke, sorry). 🙂

*Note – In the picture when I did this batch I divided the dough into fourths as an experiment so if you follow this recipe and cut in half they will be much larger.

  1. OH!! Cadbury Milk Eggs are my all time favorite candy. What a great addition to scones. I would love to eat a few of these.

  2. This looks like a great way to use up leftover Easter chocolate .. I like that you made mini versions of them too!

    • Thanks Natalie. I made regular size in the first batch and felt the mini eggs made them so decadent a mini version was in order 🙂 BTW it is a really great base scone recipe – I look forward to playing around with add ins.
