    I made this last night for a Christmas gathering today with my three best friends. They all loved it and each took some with them at the end of the day. I found that it tasted much better today than it had last night when I'd first made it. One problem: I used Nestle Premier White Morsels. These do NOT melt when microwaved. I wasted two bags of chips learning this. I went to a double boiler and it worked just fine. Since making a mess of two batches of chips, I've spoken to two people who have told me, no, you can't melt white chocolate in the microwave.
