Archer is one of those shows that never fails to make me laugh. I have a secret list of "TV Shows I Wish I Could Write For" and while I know animation is a pain in the ass to work for, Archer probably makes the list on sheer awesomeness alone.
Some bloggers and I decided to make some treats to celebrate! And by some I mean two other bloggers because apparently the rest of the people in our blogger group have no taste (jk I'm sure y'all have taste... if you're reading this...). But we have some kick ass recipes sooo whatevs. Take a Look!

Spicy Bloody Mary infused Fried Chicken and Waffles from The Flavor Bender
My plan was to make something from the show. I googled my options and, they're all booze. Every one of them. Donuts and Chinese food were mentioned in an episode or two. So I had to be creative.
Enter: Danger Scones. A silly pun. 20 year old pretentious writer Ashley would be pissed at 28 year old blogger Ashley for making a pun. 28 year old Ashley does not have time for that nonsense.
Anyway. Black chocolate scones with a spicy strawberry filling seemed dangerous enough for me. Black cocoa is what Oreos are made of, and can typically be found in specialty cake shops. If you don't have a two year old bag hiding in your pantry from the one time you went to a specialty cake shop, Hershey's Special Dark cocoa will suffice.
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1/4 cup black cocoa (can sub for dark cocoa)
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 stick butter, cut into cubes (cold)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup jalapeno strawberry jam (or strawberry jam with 1 diced jalapeno mixed in)
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
-Mix together the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
-In a food processor, pulse together the flour mixture with the butter until it forms coarse crumbs.
-Transfer to a stand mixer and pour in the vanilla and cream until the dough just comes together. It should be soft, but not too sticky.
-Pat into a large disc on the baking sheet and cut into 8 wedges.
-Carefully slice the wedges in half and spoon a bit of the jam into the center. Shape back together into a wedge (it may become kind of... deformed?)
-Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool, then drizzle with melted white chocolate.
