Orange Chocolate Chip Scones

These scones are quick to put together and can be flavored any which way you want, simply replace the chocolate chips with berries, nuts or dried fruit. Make mini scones as part of a brunch for friends or when company comes over.

Soft, flaky scones studded with chocolate chips and tons of orange zest with a sweet orange glaze.
