Substitution Options

Can I substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips? 
You may substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for other flavors of chocolate chips or chopped or grated chocolate bars. 
However, I do not recommend using white chocolate chips if you want an authentic chocolate flavor.
Can I use low-fat or fat-free milk?
The high-fat content of the whole milk gives this decadently chocolate beverage its smooth, creamy hot chocolate richness. Therefore, I would not use fat-free, but you substitute use low-fat milk if necessary.
