Wanting to make milk chocolate recipes, now I know that Cadbury's Old Gold melts beautifully but does Dairy Milk melt well?Would rather use this than compound stuff.Thanks.

I have melted Dark Ghana chocolate before and it was fine, I was just wondering if the milk chocolate melts the same or not.

Use Whittakers! The 33% Cocoa Creamy Milk is great to use for a lighter chocolate :)

Ok thanks for that winnie.

yep should be ok if you melt it in a bowl over the boiling water saucepan

I don't know about now, but before they changed the recipe and used palm oil, instead of cocoa butter, it used to be perfect for melting, etc. I think they have now changed their big blocks back to cocoa butter but as I don't buy it, I couldn't confirm that.
