  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Tip the butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl, beat until combined, then stir in the yolks and vanilla. Tip in the flour, baking powder, chocolate chips, a pinch of sea salt and any other fillings you want to add. Mix until a crumbly dough forms.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! We didn’t have an oven-proof pan so cooked in a cake tin.

My daughter (11yrs) made this for her birthday with minimal assistance. We 'may' have increased the quantities of chocolate and sweets (approx 350g in total- a mixtures of halved squares of dairy milk, mini rolos, halved squares of fudge and petzels).... and it was absolutely delicious. Made 11 servings with a scoop of vanilla ice cream- 6 at the time, and 5 more the following day warmed in the microwave. Highly recommend.
