Ingredients

Scones:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter diced + 2 tablespoon for greasing the pan
  • 3/4 cup miniature milky way
  • 3/4 cup chilled buttermilk
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk

Homemade Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsps. unsalted butter at room temperature and cut up into pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • pink Himalayan salt for garnish

Instructions

Scones:

  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  • Butter and flour a baking sheet or scone pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add butter and rub in with your fingertips until butter is reduced to the size of rice grains.
  • In a medium mixing bowl using an electric mixer fitted with the wire attachment or a hand mixer, whisk together buttermilk, egg yolk and vanilla. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients; mix until dough comes together in moist clumps. Mix in miniature milky way. Gather dough into a ball.
  • Press dough out on a lightly floured surface into an 8-inch round; cut round into 8 wedges. Transfer wedges to prepared baking sheet spacing 1 inch apart; or to scone pan.
  • Brush scones lightly with milk and bake until the scones become crusty and the top is golden; a tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20 - 25 minutes.

Caramel Sauce:

  • In the meantime work on the caramel sauce. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat melt sugar until a brownish liquid forms, make sure to stir constantly during this process.
  • When sugar has completely melted, add the butter and stir until well combined.
  • Carefully while still stirring add the heavy cream, once all the cream has been added let the mixture boil without stirring for one minute.
  • Remove from heat, stir in salt, transfer to a mason jar (or any other container) and let it cool.
  • Pour caramel on top of the scones, grind pink Himalayan sea salt on top. Serve warm.
