1 C. White Chocolate Candy Melts (I usually get mine at Michaels or a craft store in the candy section.)
1 Tbsp. Peppermint Extract
Green Food Coloring
In a medium saucepan, or a double boiler, melt the chocolate and 1 Cup of the evaporated milk over low heat, stirring often.
As the chocolate melts and the milk mixes in, pour in the vanilla and blend with a spoon or rubber spatula until smooth. I prefer to use a heat resistant, non stick spatula so that I can use it for double duty when spreading the mix.
Line an 8” or 9" square pan with wax paper or parchment paper. Spread half of the warm chocolate mixture evenly into the bottom of the lined pan. Place pan in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to chill/ harden slightly.
Leave the remaining chocolate in the pot but turn off the heat, leaving it at room temperature. (Leaving it on the heat will burn the mixture.)
While the chocolate cools, melt the white candy and the remaining sweetened evaporated milk in a small saucepan over low heat. Again, stir with a rubber spatula until it is mostly melted, and then add in the peppermint extract and the food coloring. Stir until smooth and melted.
Remove the pan from the fridge and spread the mint mixture evenly on top of the chocolate. Be sure to not wait too long before spreading as the heat from the mint will start to melt the other chocolate, making even spreading difficult.
Cool the pan in the fridge again for another 10-15 minutes until the mint is stiff.
Return the regular chocolate mixture to low heat to soften it again. When the mint is hardened some, spread on the remaining chocolate on top, trying to make some pretty swirls. (Keep in mind this will be cut up, so it doesn’t have to look perfect!)
Cool the entire layered pan for at least 2 hours, or even easier, overnight to harden.
When cooled completely, remove the block of fudge from the pan using the liner paper. For easy clean-up, keep the paper on the bottom until after slicing into pieces.
Using a large chef’s knife, or a similar long, heavy, sharp knife, cut the block of fudge into rows and then across into pieces. They can be as large or small as you’d like, but keep in mind it is very rich, so a little goes a long way.
Store any uneaten fudge in the fridge so it does not get too melty.
