Breaking news: milk chocolate and apricot is very delicious. As is a bit of cinnamon in the mix with diced apple. The dough tastes very much like the stuff you get in well-known ice-creams. I guess you would need to use powdered egg to get round the raw egg problem in uncooked dough. Any thoughts?
Very nice recipe and I love the size of white chocolate chunks you used!
