  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. ⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. ¼ cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  4. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 6 tablespoons cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  7. ¾ cup cold heavy whipping cream
  8. 1 tablespoon red liquid food coloring
  9. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. 1 tablespoon white sparkling sugar
  11. 1 recipe Mascarpone Cream (recipe follows)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spray wells of 2 (6-well) heart-shaped baking pans* with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt, whisking well.
  4. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  5. In a liquid-measuring cup, combine cream, food coloring, and vanilla extract, whisking to blend. Add to flour mixture, stirring to combine. (If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough is uniformly moist.) Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms and is evenly red.
  6. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, divide dough evenly among wells of prepared pans. Pat dough into wells to create a level surface. Sprinkle scones with sparkling sugar.
  7. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, approximately 15 minutes. Let cool in pans for 5 minutes. Remove scones from pan.
  8. Serve warm with Mascarpone Cream.
  1. *We used Nordic Ware Platinum Mini Heart Baking Pans with 6 (½-cup) heart-shaped wells.
  2. • To prevent food coloring from staining hands, wear latex gloves when mixing dough.
