Food blog darling Jessica of How Sweet Eats is known for her decadent hybrids and sweet manipulations of classic treats, and these Almond Joy Scones are no exception. For those who would choose a candy bar over a fresh pastry any day, Jessica has devised baked goods that packaged food junkies can live with. Using her favorite chocolate bar for inspiration, Jessica has created these dense buttery scones accented with almond meal and flaked coconut drizzled with one of the most luscious looking chocolate ganaches I've ever seen.
Making it acceptable to revisit the follies of our youth, Jessica beckons our inner child to eat candy for breakfast again. These scones boast much more substance that your usually trick-or-treating fare, so you may yet avoid the early morning sugar hangovers that punctuated your youth. These Almond Joy Scones are ready, willing and able to put a smile on anyone's face, so whip them up today and give them a good home.
