3cupsNestle white chocolate chips18 oz white chocolate
2heaping cups mini chocolate candiesI used Rolo, Kit Kat, Milky Way and Reese's
Line an 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan with foil, waxed paper, or parchment paper with the ends overhanging so you can lift out the fudge easily when it is cooled. This will allow you to cut it neatly. (This is optional)
Arrange one cup of the candy evenly across the top of the foil and set aside.
Pour the condensed milk into a microwave safe bowl and then put in the chocolate.chips. If using bar chocolate, make sure to chop it into small pieces so it will melt easily.
Microwave the bowl of milk and chocolate for 30 seconds.( If your microwave has a 50% power setting, use it.) Stir. Microwave for another 30 second and stir again. Let the heat of the milk melt the chocolate. If necessary microwave again for 10 seconds, just enough to melt the chocolate. Don't over do it or the chocolate will seize up into a hard ball.
When the chocolate has melted completely, add in the vanilla, if using.
Immediately pour the fudge into the pan, over the candies. Spread it out evenly and then scatter the rest of the chocolate over the top, gently pressing the pieces down into the fudge.
Let the fudge cool until firm before cutting. You can refrigerate it if you like.
I like Nestle white chocolate chips for this recipe, I have had the best luck with them as far as melting without problems. Just remember that less is more when you melt chocolate --- go slow and stir in between. Another option would be to heat the condensed milk first, and then stir in the chips and let them sit for a few minutes to melt. Then stir to finish melting.
