    I have a question about the recipe. It says white chocolate but then in parentheses says milk chocolate, dark chocolate. Are you saying those can be substituted?

    Hi Lakegirl

    If you can not get hold of white chocolate, you can substitute and add milk or dark chocolate.

    Yes you have to email us a pic, with your name, name of blog and a link from your blog entry, thanks.

    Yes you can tweak it but we normally prefer that everyone sticks with the same recipe but you can substitute ingredients if you can not get hold of the ingredients listed in the recipe.
