DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with 1 cup milk.
  • Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan over low heat, cook and stir candy coating with remaining milk until coating is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Stir in peppermint extract and food coloring.
  • Spread over bottom layer; chill for 10 minutes or until firm.
  • Warm remaining chocolate mixture if necessary; spread over mint layer.
  • Chill for 2 hours or until firm.
  • Remove from pan; cut into 1-in. squares.
