LOOKING for: Scones
A friend and I were talking about raspberry scones-we looked at this recipe but can't find the chocolate. Am I missing it or is it chocolate chips???;

Raspberry Scones ================
2 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 6 Tbsp. cold butter, 1 cup heavy cream, 3/4 cup fresh raspberries, extra cream and sugar
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into mixture with pastry blender until it resembles a course meal. Add cream and raspberries to dry ingredients. Mix lightly with fork until mixture forms a stiff dough. Knead on floured board just to incorporate all flour; try not to damage berries.
Roll into 7-inch round and cut into 6 or 8 wedges. Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheet; brush tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
Note: When adding fruit to the scone mixture, make sure the raspberries or blueberries are frozen. Otherwise you end up with crushed fruit. Still tastes as good, but not as pretty. I usually add the cream and when the dough has almost come together I add the frozen fruit. With the Chocolate you can add it along with the cream.
