I halved the recipe and baked for about 30 minutes. I also didn't use chocolate or nuts but added tiny bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. They came out good and tasted great with strawberries.

I took the advice of others and cooked it overall a total of 40-50 minutes and it is still gooey in the middle and just a gooey chewey mess. Would not make this again.
