Shan't do this again. First, it doesn't state what size of tin; secondly it only gives temperature for electric fan-oven (yes I know one can look up what should be for gas, but most recipes include the information); worst of all, when you mix the quantities it gives, the mixture is so stiff you can't actually get all the flour to mix - had to add some liquid. Having now looked for other recipes for Chocolate Crunch, most tell you to melt the margarine rather than cream it with the sugar. Wonder if that was the problem?
