  • Bake the scones for 20 to 25 minutes, until slightly firm and lightly browned on the bottom, pale on top.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  • In a medium bowl place 4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate.
  • Warm in a sauce pan 1/2 cup heavy cream.
  • Pour the heated cream into the semi-sweet chocolate and whisk until smooth.
  • Drizzle the ganache over the scones and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
