Chocolate Chip Toffee Scones

Whenever my mom comes to visit, I ask her if there's anything special she wants me to make her. Every time, she tells me she wants chocolate chip scones. This visit, I made a variation with chocolate chips AND toffee chips:

Whole foods apparently doesn't sell baking toffee, so I was forced (the horror!) to buy actual toffee and it was gooooooddddd, I definitely ate it until I got sick!

These scones are great. Nice and soft, good texture, golden brown, sugar on top. I'm not sure the toffee really adds much though: I don't think scones need to be all that sweet. I probably didn't dice the toffee up small enough either, which doesn't help-- sometimes you bite in and get a huge chunk of toffee. I'm not complaining about huge bites of toffee, no sir, but huge bites of toffee isn't quite what I'm looking for in a scone. If I make these again, I will probably omit the toffee entirely and get some lemon zest in there-- in between huge bites of toffee I thought to myself "man, these would be perfect with some lemon zest.

I hope mommy likes them!
