Valentine’s Day Fudge

I found this super easy recipe on www.familyfun.go.com while searching for Valentine desserts. The conversation hearts in the photo look great, but I used Valentine-colored M&M’s instead. (That’s what happens when you wait until February 14 to buy conversation hearts: they’re all gone.)

Dark Chocolate Layer:

1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

dash of salt

White Chocolate Layer:

1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

dash of salt

1. Line an 8″ square pan with foil. Set aside.

2. Microwave the ingredients for the dark chocolate layer for 30 seconds.  Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat until smooth. Spread over foil-lined pan.

3. In another dish, microwave the white chocolate ingredients in the same way, only stop every 20 seconds instead. (White chocolate tends to scorch.) Spread over dark chocolate layer.

4. While fudge is still warm, carefully score into 1″ pieces with a knife. Press a conversation heart or M&M onto each scored square.

5. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm. 

6. Carefully lift out the block of fudge and peel off the foil. Cut onto the scored lines. Place each square of fudge in a mini muffin cup or wrap in colored cellophane with twist ties or pipe cleaners at the ends.
