Combine dry ingredients and sugar.In a large bowl, whisk together flour, chocolate chips, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt.
Blend butter.Grate cold butter into flour with a coarse size grater, pastry blender, or via a food processor. Mix flour and butter with finger tips. Butter should be around pea size.
Add wet ingredients.Beat together buttermilk and eggs and add to flour mixture. Stir together with a rubber spatula or your hands until no more flour is visible. Batter will be on the wetter side and will be sticky.*buttermilk and eggs should be combined last minute to prevent curdling*
Shape dough.With floured hands, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten dough to ¾ inch with your palm or with a floured rolling pin. Dough can be circular or rectangular. Cut dough into 8 even pieces for large scones or 12 even pieces for medium size scones.*Make sure to lift the dough and flour the surface as needed to prevent sticking*
Bake scones.Transfer shaped scones onto parchment lined pans. Keep scones about 2 inches apart. Bake large scones for about 14 minutes and medium scones for about 10 minutes. Scones are done when they are golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool and enjoy! This is amazing with a glass of milk!
