Crumbled cake scraps or muffins from the shop work just as well in this recipe. Crumbs offer a chewy texture and help the dough stay a little airy. Walnuts, whole or crushed, may be inserted into the centre or mixed into the dough for an extra creative twist. The chocolate sprinkles not only look delicious but also offer a satisfying crunch.
