Tip: You can also use dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips with cocoa butter but don’t mix chocolate wafer melts with the chips. The palm oil in the chocolate wafers will not mix well with the cocoa butter in the chips. You may have a challenge getting the two chocolates to mix if one is soy lecithin, coconut or cocoa butter and the other palm oil.
