Have just made this and it is currently in the oven, not sure how it will turn out yet but the mix was delicious. A tip if you are going to make this is if you have expensive pots with a heavy bottom they keep the heat really well. I found when i mixed in the choc chips they melted from the pot heat. So either quickly transfer the mix to the baking tin or transfer sugar butter mix from pan to a mixing bowl before continuing.
