I got this out of one of those Christmas books you can buy-but don't remember which one. The instructions look involved, but it's really very simple, and simply scrumptious! By the way, I couldn't find raspberry flavored chips, so I melted a little seedles raspberry jam and incorporated it into the batter. Worked great. The zaar won't let me type in "raspberry flavored semi-sweet chocolate chips, but that's what you are looking for.
