Easy Chocolate Chip Scones (Bisquick Scones)

easy chocolate chip scones from out of the box baking.com

These light, fluffy chocolate chip scones are (by far) the easiest scones you’ll ever make. And because they start with Bisquick, they have a soft biscuit-like texture you’re going to love!

Can I Make Scones Out of Bisquick?

Yes. . .and you should!

The idea came after I created my own DIY Bisquick Mix, which I try to keep in my pantry at all times. I say “try” because I go through so much of it–with baking and cooking, in general. It’s perfect for pancakes, waffles, dumplings, biscuits, cobbler, and a variety of other treats, like my cinnamon sugar Bisquick cookies.

Yes, it’s really that versatile!

So, I knew it would probably be great for scones. I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

What is Bisquick?

I covered the History of Bisquick in my Easy Copycat Bisquick post. The story goes back to a chef on a train in the 1930s. He created his own baking mix in advance to speed up baking time. (Hey, when you’re knocking out a lot of product quickly, you do what you have to do!)

The idea caught on and before long housewives across the country were making many of their baked goods from this ready-made mix.

I do the same, but mine is homemade. Of course, you don’t have to use the DIY version of Bisquick for this recipe. You can use the store-bought, if you’re so inclined. (I’m just cheap, truth be told, which is why I’ll be using the Copycat Bisquick Mix from now on!)

Ingredients for Easy Chocolate Chip Scones (Bisquick scones)

Wondering what you’ll need to make these easy-breezy chocolate chip scones? You’re probably already got most of these ingredients in your pantry or refrigerator.

You’ll find a full printable recipe card at the bottom of this post but for now you can take a quick peek at the things you’ll need.

  • Bisquick
  • whole milk
  • sugar
  • large egg
  • chocolate chips
  • chopped pecans (optional)

How to Make these Easy Scones

These came together so easily, so quickly, that I almost felt like I’d somehow cheated the system. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cover a baking sheet in parchment paper.

Add your Bisquick, milk, sugar, and egg to a large mixing bowl.

Mix until fully incorporated but don’t over mix. You can use an electric mixer or mix by hand with a whisk or large serving fork. (I have a weird fascination with large serving forks and often use them to mix recipes like this.)

Add your chocolate chips and pecans. (You can leave out the pecans if you’re not a fan.)

Stir until incorporated.

Scoop spoonfuls of batter onto the baking sheet. There’s no rhyme or reason to these, so the shape doesn’t matter. You can choose to make them small, medium, or large. Mine were rather large but the size felt right in the moment.

Place in preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes or until light golden brown.

Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. When you can handle the scones, remove from cookie sheet and place them on the wire rack to continue cooling.

What to Expect from these Scones

Sometimes I run out of words to describe all of the luscious things that come out of my kitchen. This one really surprised me. Because it was so easy, I felt like it didn’t deserve to be so yummy. (Does that make sense? I guess I felt like anything worth its salt should take work. . .and this truly didn’t.)

I was wrong. Very, very wrong. It doesn’t take work to end up with a delicious product. Sometimes it’s just a matter of having the right thing (Bisquick) on hand. The Bisquick made for a light, fluffy product.

I’ll be honest: the one I ate was almost cupcake-like. Delicious!

(Side note: I haven’t tried this recipe with boxed/store-bought Bisquick, so I make no claims as to the taste using that particular product.)

Made with my DIY Bisquick, though? Primo!

I wanted to add that these are very different from my Easy Cake Mix Scones. They are sweeter and have a different texture altogether. These are more like my Easy Buttermilk Scones, on the lighter side.

Variations on these Easy Bisquick Scones

Now that I see how easy it is to make scones out of Bisquick I’m already plotting my future. I will use the base recipe, minus the chocolate chips and pecans, and make some of the following:

  • White Chocolate Raspberry: I’ll add fresh raspberry and white chocolate chips to the scones, then drizzle with melted white chocolate. (Yum!)
  • Lemon Berry: I’ll add lemon zest, strawberries, (or blueberries) and drizzle with lemon glaze.
  • Savory ham and cheese: I’ll skip the sugar component and add diced ham and cheese. (I’m guessing they would be delicious!)

Questions People are Asking about Scones:

Are scones considered to be a cookie or cake?

They’re the perfect blend of the two, honestly! And oftentimes (as is the case with this recipe) they almost take on a biscuit-like texture. (Scones are incredibly versatile.)

Are scones a dessert or a breakfast food?

Depending on how you make them, they can be used for either. Breakfast versions could be savory or sweet. High tea (or dessert) versions would mostly be sweet, (though not always terribly sweet).

Can I make scones in advance?

Scones are usually best in the first few days. If I wanted to serve scones at an event I would probably bake them the day before or even the day of.

How do I store scones?

Place in an airtight container. As I mentioned above, you’ll want to eat them within 3 days if they’re left at room temperature. They’ll last a little longer (up to a week) in the refrigerator but you’ll want them to come to room temperature before eating, as the refrigerator will cause them to firm up too much. You can freeze them up to two months. Thaw naturally.
