Peppermint Chocolates.... Taste of Home....

Now, if you can get a craving for Peppermint and Chocolate at the same time.....have I got a recipe for you!!!   You need:  1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, 1 can (14 Oz.) of sweetened condensed milk, divided....  1 cup vanilla or white chips....3 teaspoons of peppermint extract, and 2-3 drops of green food coloring.    In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate chips in 3/4 cup of condensed milk over low heat, stirring occasionally.  Line an 8 inch dish or pan with waxed paper, and then, butter the prevent sticking.Spread 1/2 of the chocolate mixture in the pan, and refrigerate for about 5 or 10 minutes to set the chocolate. Let the remaining chocolate cool at room temperature. In the meantime, in another saucepan, melt the white chips in the rest of the condensed milk and stir til smooth. Add the extract and the food coloring. Refrigerate this for 5 or 10 minutes also. Spread over the first chocolate layer, and then spread the last of the chocolate over the vanilla layer. Refrigerate til all layers are cool and set.. Cut into 1 inch pieces, and ENJOY!!!..... yields 5 dozen one inch pieces @ 51 calories each.
