This does not work at all, it would have to be a giant packet of melts for 1/2 a pack to make more than a glob of chocolate, and how do you cut it once it has hardened? People would just be breaking their teeth. There would need to be some condensed milk in here to make up the volume and soften it up a bit surely...


1 packet... 1/2 packet... I was interested in this recipe, but maybe you could use the universal recipe writing rules and specify the weight of the ingredients. 1 packet means absolutely nothing... Is that 1/2 a 50g packet? 1/2 a 200g packet? Or is it another sized packet entirely?

can you use ordinary white and dark chocolate instead of he melts ????
