  • Mix together the flour, cocoa powder and salt.
  • Rub in the butter.
  • Stir in the sugar then the milk to make a soft dough.
  • Stir in the cranberries and chocolate chunks.
  • Knead gently.
  • Roll out to about an inch thick and cut out rounds. Place the scones in a circle or oval shape on a lined baking tray. Press a few extra cranberries into the top of each scone, and dust with caster sugar.
  • If you have extra mixture after forming your wreath, you could make extra scones to put in the middle or at the side.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for approx 25 minutes or until firm and brown on top.
  • Allow to cool on the tray, and only try to move the wreath when it is fully cool. Decorate as desired!
