Blueberry Chocolate SconesCan you believe that before I made these, I’d never had a scone in my life. Which is pretty lame considering a majority of the blood running through my veins is Scottish and English. When given he opportunity I always go for the muffin, or the doughnut – and pass over the scones without a second glance.

I was watching an episode of “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” last weekend, a show which every time I watch it, I swear I’ll never watch it again – because after every episode I have a list of things that I need to make, like – right now! Anyway, this guy was on there making nectarine scones that looked absolutely fabulous. It made me sad that I’d never had one! So, I decided then and there to make them for breakfast on Sunday morning.

A few weeks ago, Brookside Chocolate contacted me asking if I’d be interested in trying some of their products. Free chocolate? Well, that’s a no-brainer! They sent along the nicest little kit that included three bags (Blueberry with Acai, Pomegranate, and Raspberry with Goji) of their chocolate covered fruit juice pieces. Which, I promptly devoured most of. They’re so good. The fruit pieces inside are just sweet enough to really let the flavors in the chocolate come through. The chocolate is high quality too, just as rich and smooth as can be. I had pulled a recipe for blueberry white chocolate scones, but thought adding some of the dark chocolate blueberry-acai pieces would be fun! So, that’s what I did.

I’m proud to announce that I am now a scone fan! I’d say the best way to describe them is halfway between a cake and a biscuit. Fluffy, and creamy – studded with delicious blueberries and chocolate. I honestly can’t think of a better way to start the day! Oh wait, maybe I can – the good people at Brookside have offered to give away a tasting kit to one of my fine readers! It includes:

1 pkg. Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate
1 pkg. Brookside Dark Chocolate Açai with Blueberry
1 pkg. Brookside Dark Chocolate Goji with Raspberry
Crate & Barrel 3-part server with central loop handle
Crate & Barrel stainless steel cheese server
Crate & Barrel porcelain cheese board
2 stemless wine glasses
Grocery gift card ($30)
Gaiam exercise headband
1 year subscription to Fitness Magazine

All you need to do is leave one comment telling me which flavor you’re most looking forward to trying! Contest runs through next Thursday (2/7) at 12 PM EST. Winner will be chosen using a random number generator.

Congratulations to Meryl, with entry 37! She’s looking forward to trying the Dark Chocolate Pomegranate. Thanks to Brookside for sponsoring such a great giveaway!
