Are Scones Breakfast or Dessert?

Sharing is caring!

Sounds like an easy question, Are Scones Breakfast or Dessert? I am wondering if we really have to decide? Can’t something be two things in one? Scones can be for breakfast and for dessert!

Scones are usually sweet, but you can go with savory too. SO, If you want a definite answer, I can’t give you one. Feel free to eat scones any time of day you choose! BUT, they definitely make a great grab and go breakfast option!

If you have never made a chocolate bark recipe before this is a great place to start. Chocolate bark is usually a little more involved and this recipe is just a simple melting and add some embellishments kind of thing instead.

I really like that you can let kids help with this one. Once the chocolate is on the parchment paper and cooling there’s nothing dangerous they have to deal with. You can let them design the reindeer however they like! It’s a great way to let them help make chocolate reindeer bark for their classmates, teachers, or friends.

What do I need to make this chocolate reindeer bark?

This recipe uses candy eyes, red M&M’s, small twist pretzels, chocolate chips, wax paper, and cooking spray. You can sub in gluten free pretzels if you need to make this one gluten free / gluten sensitive friendly! 

You can also use smaller or bigger eyes depending on what you find / what is available. It’s pretty easy to create these reindeer, once you see the process you’ll be making them every time you need a dessert during the holidays.

Kitchen essentials for tasty no bake recipes:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

I like these casserole dishes from Pyrex which are great for no bake recipes and for all your favorite dinners, cakes, and casseroles.

You can’t go wrong with some good sharp knives and a cutting board. They will always come in handy in the kitchen for recipes of any kind, even desserts!

Pour the chocolate chips into a sauce pan and lightly spray with cooking spray.

Melt the chocolate chips over medium heat.

Lay out a piece of wax paper.

Spread the melted chocolate onto the wax paper in two-three inch circles.

Add two pretzels for antlers.

Then add two candy eyes.

Place a red m&m onto the chocolate for a nose. 

Let the chocolate harden.

Let me tell you a little bit more about Seven Sisters Scones. This small business was founded in Johns Creek, Georgia, Seven Sisters Scones is a labor of love for Hala Yassine and her sisters (yes, there are seven sisters – and two brothers). A professional chef, Hala baked her first scone from a box mix and was decidedly unimpressed. Leaning on years of culinary experience, she baked her own superior version.

Now she has her own scone business. You can find her shop in GA, Georgia farm market stands and you can order and have scones delivered. They sell everything from sweet to savory, gluten-free, vegan, and more. If you are not sure what flavors to start with, you can order a sample pack of mini-scones until you discover your favorite.
