Holiday Layered Fudge Friday, November 3, 2017 CW20



Ingredients

1 teaspoon butter
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk, divided
8 ounces white candy coating
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
1/8 teaspoon orange paste food coloring

Directions

Line an 8-in. square pan with foil; butter foil and set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips and 1 cup milk on high for 30 seconds; stir. Repeat until mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared pan. Chill for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating with remaining milk; stir until smooth. Stir in extract and food coloring. Spread over chocolate layer. Chill for 1 hour or until firm. Using foil, remove fudge from pan. Cut into 1-in. squares.
While this is a nice Halloween (or Thanksgiving) candy, with just a little twist it can become a Christmas treat. Instead of chocolate chips, use white chips. Convert the topping by adding mint extract and red food coloring to the top layer.
