3-ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2-cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4-tsp baking powder
1/2-cup granulated sugar
1/4-tsp salt
1/3-cup chilled butter or margarine, diced
1/2-cup chopped walnuts
1/3-cup milk
1/2-cup packed brown sugar
1-large egg
1 1/2-tsp vanilla extract

Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 F. Lightly grease and flour a baking sheet. In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. In a large bowl, blend together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Stir in the walnuts. In a small bowl, beat the milk, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the melted chocolate. Combine the two mixtures, stirring gently until the dough holds together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat it into a 7-inch circle. Place the circle on the prepared baking sheet and use a serrated knife to score the dough into 8 wedges (do not cut all the way through the dough). Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the top is a darker brown. Remove from oven and serve hot. Makes 8 scones.
