This is a great idea; very tasty, but I had some technical problems...the cake didn't really rise. My husband said that it was more like eating a bunch of chips, so if you like that rather than more cake, this is for you. I think I will try this again but let the cake cook first for about 15 minutes, and then sprinkle on the chips. I also recommend mixing the chips and nuts all together first so you don't get globs of the same chip in the same spot :) When I try this again, I'll update my results. Thank you for a great idea! The flavors were definitely rich and well matched.
