Mint Fudge


2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, divided
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 ounces white candy coating (see note above)
2 -3 teaspoons peppermint extract
3 drops green food coloring

1 In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with 1 cup milk.
2 Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
3 Spread half into a waxed paper-lined 8-in. square pan; (I personally prefer to line the pan with foil and grease the foil with butter) chill for 10 minutes or until firm.
4 Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan over low heat, cook and stir candy coating with remaining milk until coating is melted and mixture is smooth.
5 Stir in peppermint extract and food coloring.
6 Spread over bottom layer; chill for 10 minutes or until firm.
7 Warm remaining chocolate mixture if necessary; spread over mint layer.
8 Chill for 2 hours or until firm.
9 Remove from pan; cut into 1-in. squares.
