Hmmm....that sounds very interesting, Marcy. I only made it with the white chocolate. If you try that please let us know how it works out. I don't see why it wouldn't though. Valerie may have tried it with milk chocolate.

Has anyone tried this with milk chocolate? I was thinking of making a batch half white and half milk chocolate? Any suggestions, ideas, etc? Thanks!
