What a resounding success these where at the DS's supported work place where they held an Australian Big Morning Tea to raise funds for cancer research. I got 84 cookies from the mix and used 3 oz chocolate for the drizzle. I baked the first test batch at 170C fan forced for 12 minutes and they were a little overdone, so lowered the temperature to 160C and baked for 10 minutes and they were perfect. I did have some of praline leech from some of the cookies so may not of cooked the sugar water quite long enough but it is the first time I had made it and it seemed the right colour. All I got back was an empty container, thank you Annacia, made for photo tag.
