Cinnamon Chip Scones and Light Iced Coffee

Ever since I first tasted International Delight Iced Coffee, I’ve loved it.  I have to be careful not to drink the whole container myself.  It’s so creamy and smooth and sweet and coffee tasting!

I was thrilled when they came out with new Light Iced Coffee.  I’m in love with the Vanilla, but it also comes in  Mocha.  And in June, you’ll be able to find it in Caramel Macchiato too.

What’s so great about Light Iced Coffee?  The fact that it only has 100 calories per serving!  That means I can indulge more often.  And I can enjoy it along side a sweet treat, like these Cinnamon Chip Scones.  It’s like having my own coffee house at home.

I’m not sure I’d ever made scones before, but these are so easy to make.  The dough comes together much like biscuits, but with the addition of an egg.

I used Hershey’s cinnamon chips in mine.  They added a lot of flavor (perfect with the Light Iced Coffee).  I also used the cinnamon chips to make a simple glaze for the top of the scones.  Super easy and oh, so good!

Here’s what you’ll need to make the scones:

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I’ve only tried making scones once and I loved them! I’ll have to try these-they sound super flavorful! I don’t know why but I can’t get into just iced coffee! I love the blended coffee drinks at McDonald’s or Starbucks but just coffee over ice has never sat right with me, but my mom LOVES the International Delights Iced Coffee. I’ve tried the Vanilla and it’s pretty good! Thanks again for sharing!
