White Chocolate Lime Scones

Sweet and tangy flavors from white chocolate lime scones.

We bought some limes, to cut up and add to our adult beverages.  I had the taste to bake something with the limes.  I thought about white chocolate being included on the lime decision baking.  So these white chocolate lime scones came about and are pretty delicious. They’re baked with white whole wheat flour and topped with a sweet lime glaze.  The glaze gets an extra flavor boost from lime zest.  Makes for a perfect treat with your hot morning beverage.

You get whole wheat goodness with sweet white chocolate pieces in the scone.  As you bite into the scone, the sweet, yet tangy glaze hits your tongue and you have to take another bite.  The white chocolate and lime flavor is a good one.

Games and hot chocolate…

On our way home from school, our 5 year old son explains a game he wants to play.  He likes to make up cute games.  He always has specific rules that enables him to win.  We had some snow and he wants to have a snowball fight.  He does not want to be on my team.  He wants me to help him make all his snowballs.  Go back to my side and make my own snowballs and have a snowball fight.  When he runs out of snowballs, I need to help him make more.

 I ended up talking him into sledding down a hill instead.  Then going inside for hot chocolate.  He paused and asked, “Can I have marshmallows in my hot chocolate?” 

I replied, “Of course you can.”
