Happy Easter

Chocolate Rocks


Well I am starting to bake again, my freezer is soooo bare. I made these chocolate scones and my girls went crazy over them. They are easy enough to freeze. Set the scones uncooked on a baking sheet and set in the freezer. After they freeze, transfer the frozen scones to freezer bags. Just pull out a few at a time a bake them off frozen. Do NOT defrost. They might take a few more minutes but not much. You can make these with all with white flour or pastry. I just like to mix it up and use lots of different flours. Also normally with scorns I just use a lot of butter. Here I experimented with butter and a little oil. It made them a bit softer and moister. I am still playing, I encourge you to do the same thing.

So is everybody ready for Easter? Do I dare confess, I think we will not be doing much. My hubby works, I have no other family except my mom and the girls told me they would rather have a little good dark chocolate, then an Easter basket. Where do they get this from ;-) I think Easter may be a good movie and tea, sighhh. We did not even decorate this year. We are soooo lame in my house right now. Enjoy the rocks and if you make them please let me know what you think, remember be honest xoxoxox

Chocolate Rocks (scones)

make 12 scones

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 and 3/4 cup assorted whole grain flours, I used brown rice, quinoa and spelt

1/4 cup coco powder

2 cups rolled oats, I used thick. Do not use instant

1/2 evaporated cain or any sweetener

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup oil

1 TBL. vanilla

1 cup or more of buttermilk

1 cup chopped dark chocolate

Pre heat over 375

In a food processor or bowl add all dry ingredients and sugar, chop butter in till it is the size of small peas. Add one cup of buttermilk. Whole grain flour can absorb more liquid, so look at the dough, you should be a able to grab balls of dough. If too dry and crumbly, add some more buttermilk. Add chocolate, scoop big balls of dough and set on a greased pan. It is sort of like drop biscuits. They can be close, but not touching. They do not spread a lot.

Bake 15-20 minutes till when inserted with a skewer, they come clean.

Oh yum Clarice, and I'm with you. Too tired to decorate, but brought in lots of bouquets, sprouted a big basket of wheat grass, and amassed wonderful things for my grand's baskets.

Jeff and I will take it easy tomorrow. We just arrived back from book tour, then leave again on Thursday for Minnesota. My garden needs my time, but can't do it now.

Love and joys to you,

Yummy baking treat for a holiday weekend. It is rather quiet in these parts but the weather is lovely and planning on catching up on crafting and blogging friends. Happy Easter to you and the family.


I have to try that recipe. Happy Easter, I am a new visitor, Like the header it is so different. Come over and get on my followers
list. We should connect..



Those look terrific, Clarice! I will definitely be trying them out soon. I hope you and your family have a nice, quiet relaxing holiday. All one really does truly need is just a little bit of chocolate!!! :) Love, Theresa

These look delish and I always appreciate how your make them up and freeze them unbaked to bake up fresh later on. These would be nice for Easter morning coffee!

Thanks for sharing your goodies with us.


Chocolate, I love chocolate….
And those look so good.
Easter is by far my favorite holiday. I don’t decorate much; I like to keep it fresh
and spring like with a few ribbons and bunnies here and there…and to this I will add a few bouquets of spring flowers. At this time of the year spring flowers can say it all…

As always, everything you make always looks so good! I have to do some baking soon as all we have left is some zucchini bread in the freezer.

These look so yummy Clarice! I've not baked lately either because I'm the one who eats most of the things I bake. :) Easter will be simple for us this year too. We usually spend it with my Dad. He likes to cook for us and we like to eat his cooking so it works out well! No Easter baskets for us this year either (except the ones I used to decorate). The girls just want money :)!! We will see. More soon my sweet friend.

Okay Clarice, now you just HAD to share some chocolatey goodness with us didn't you? :) I can't wait to try these, they sound wonderful!

Have a blessed Easter!


I'm with you Clarice! I didn't decorate this year either (unless you count the peeps on my blog LOL). My kids won't be home and my sister is taking her family to FL for spring break, so it will just be hubby and my parents. Not exciting enough to get all gussied up for! Your day sounds wonderful -- maybe we'll think about doing the same!


Ooh, these sound so yummy! I think I'll need to treat myself after the busy weekend coming up. So should I make some ahead of time so they're ready, or look forward to making them Monday...so many decisions. LOL! Think I'll have some chocolate to help me decide!


Anything chocolate has to be good! We're not decorating much for Easter this year either - since moving last week I'm barely able to get the house clean. But the kids are coming up for the weekend and my parents, so we'll have a full house. And celebrating Easter is all about resurrection life anyway.


Did you say chocolate!!! We got a wii fit this week hoping to lose a few pounds...funny huh...i don't think I can stay away from the chocolate and sweets it looks too good!!!! Hugs to you and a Happy Easter... no matter what you do...just keep in mind the reason we celebrate... Jesus!!!! it's not about the bunnies and baskets anyways!!! Mica

Chocolate + easy recipe = a fantastic recipe!

This just makes my mouth water and now I need to go raid my kitchen cupboards and see if I have all the ingredients. My tummy thanks you and my hips say, "Hmmm, Clarice, Junie really doesn't need these." I say, "Oh yes I do!"
