Sadly you have a bit more to do here. First where the spill was can impact how far you'll need to go. Often people spill things into the keyboard or trackpad so these need cleaning or replacing. If the spill was to the side then you may need to clean the logic board.
 
Allowing the milk to dry is not a good thing as it makes it harder to clean out now. As to how to clean once you've disconnected the battery (ideally removing it) we can use distilled water (not TAP) as the dried milk solids will go back into solution with the distilled water. Unlike tap water its pure H2O so it does not have the minerals and salts that will cause damage. Often I need to bathe the parts to get them clean otherwise a cotton swab (Q-Tip) and/or toothbrush is needed.
 
Once you know you got the parts cleaned of the milk we still have a problem! First chocolate is a fat so we still need to get it out as well. This is were a solvent that cuts through it will be needed, isopropyl alcohol is a good choice here. You do want some that is 85% or better. Again, we use the same approach going over the parts.
 
As it turns out isopropyl alcohol is also a great dryer of water so it will speed up the drying of the distilled water we used. Even still I would find a warm window sill to sit the part out on to let them drive for a good day or two before putting things back together.
 
Now the bad news. Keyboards & Trackpads often don't survive being gottengetting wet and then air dried without cleaning so you'll likely need to replace them.

Besides this system will smell like spoiled milk!
