Hi Shashini, the recipe calls for unsalted butter but you can swap with salted if you prefer. We have not tested the recipe with milk chocolate melts but if they are your preferred choice feel free to swap them with dark chocolate. The DH team

Can I substitute Salted butter to unsalted? and can I use the milk chocolate melts? Thanks!
