Easy Two-Layer Fudge

As I was making this tonight, I remembered someone asked for it in my comments last week.

So, here is the easiest fudge you will ever make. Thanks to my super SIL for the recipe.

My mom actually makes the best fudge. I tried for years to duplicate her recipe and it was pretty good - but oh, so involved. This is just incredibly easy and people love it! You can also play with it like I did last week and make different flavors (like Peppermint Fudge). Plus, my mom still makes hers every year, so I take the easy route.

Two-Layer Fudge
Yield: 4 dozen pieces

1 package (8 Squares) of Bakers Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
1 package (6 squares) of Bakers White Chocolate
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk - divided.
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup chopped Walnuts (optional)

Microwave the chocolate and 3/4 cup of the condensed milk in a medium microwavable bowl on HI for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute and returning to the microwave for the remaining 1 minute. Stir until melted and creamy.

Add Vanilla and walnuts if you want them;mix well.

Spread evenly into a foil-lined 8 inch square pan.

Microwave white chocolate and remaining milk on HI for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute and returning to the microwave for the remaining 1/2 minute. Stir until melted and creamy.

Spread evenly over chocolate.

Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Cut into 48 pieces.

Eat. Give. Share. Eat more.

Okay, now to make Peppermint Fudge, I OMIT the walnuts in the chocolate layer.
I use 3/4 cup Andie's Peppermint chips* instead of the Bakers White Chocolate.

It will be pink! :) I love pink. Then I sprinkle some of the chips on top. Very festive.

*Note: I am having a hard time finding these chips this year. Sooo, if you can't find them in your neck of the woods, go ahead and use the Bakers White Chocolate and add 1/4 tsp of Peppermint extract. Sprinkle with crushed peppermints.
