First, five stars for the original recipe. However, I was making this for a family party, and needed a sweeter version for those who dislike dark chocolate. After experimenting, I found that a half recipe fits nicely in a 2" deep, 6" diameter cake pan. Milk chocolate can be substituted for at least two-thirds of the chips used in the cake. Milk chocolate can also be substituted for the icing if you cut the cream in half (makes sense since milk chocolate already contains some milk). Whatever you do, Do Not Substitute White Chocolate! That came out so thin and sour that I thought the cream was bad. If you want a white topping, mix confectioners sugar with a little cream and vanilla extract.
