2. A very popular lifehack for college students living away from home, all you need is an iron and a 3-in-1 satchel of MILO to make this DIY chocolate bar
First, make sure you have some 3-in-1 satchels of MILO, a tablecloth, an iron and an ironing board on hand.
Now let's get to work. Switch on your iron and while you wait for it to heat up, cover the MILO satchel with tablecloth and then place it on the ironing board.
Starting with the lowest heat setting, press the covered MILO satchel as you normally would with your clothes for a few minutes. Things can get a little bit tricky here, so go with your gut feeling. Experiment with the heat settings and heating times until you find the perfect combination for the perfect chocolate bar.
After you're done "ironing" your MILO satchel, leave it to cool for a while before you unwrap your handmade delicacy.
