Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Scones

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
Yield: 12 scones
Dark chocolate pumpkin scones are one of my favorite fall treats! A great breakfast or snack, enjoy them seasonally or year round. These scones are simple to make - no equipment or rest time needed - and bake up in just 15 minutes.


  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ cup cold butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/4 cup milk, for spreading on top of scones
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice.
  • Cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter. If you don’t have one, you can use a fork or crumble the butter with the dry ingredients using your fingers.
  • Mix in the pumpkin and milk with a spoon to start, then knead with your hands to incorporate all the dry ingredients. Add the dark chocolate chunks and knead chocolate is just distributed.
  • Divide dough into two even pieces. Form each piece into a disc with a 6 inch diameter and place on the lined baking sheet. Cut each disc into six wedges (like a pizza) but don’t separate them.
  • Brush the tops of the discs with milk and sprinkle the raw sugar.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.


I get my dark chocolate chunks from Trader Joe's.
