Dreamy Chocolate Chunk Buttermilk Scones

Today I decided to try to use up the carton of buttermilk which had been abandoned since cinnamon roll baking day, did some research and found a decent scone recipe to work on. I made a few tweaks to the recipe according to the availability of ingredients I had and with crossed-fingers, slid them into the oven. And shortly after…. out popped these sweet smelling (I swear the smell of baking chocolate became almost unbearable) chocolate chunk scones! The extra 1/4 cup of chocolate I added created the perfect balance of choc to scone. Although I’m not sure how that would pan out had I used chocolate chips instead. Whatever the case, a lil extra chocolate never hurts (:
