I thought these were quite good, although the almonds and dried unsweetened coconut I added were overpowered by the chocolate. That doesn't surprise me though, if the recipe came from the chocolate company. I used buttermilk in place of whipping cream because I had it and needed to use it. I don't think it affected the flavor too much. When I cooked the scones, I had to add 10 or 12 minutes. Not sure if this was because of the buttermilk or my oven (it's a convection oven and doesn't always do a great job at browning. Will definitely try this recipe again with 1.5 cups of chips and 1 cup of nuts.
