Line a 20 or 23cm (8 or 9 in) square tin with greaseproof paper.
In heavy saucepan over low heat, melt plain chocolate with 250ml condensed sweetened milk and vanilla. Spread half of the mixture into prepared tin; chill 10 minutes, or until firm. Reserve remaining chocolate mixture at room temperature.
In another heavy saucepan over low heat, melt white chocolate with remaining condensed sweetened milk (mixture will be thick.) Stir in peppermint extract and food colouring, if using. Spread this mixture on chilled plain chocolate layer; chill 10 minutes, or until firm.
Spread reserved plain chocolate mixture over the mint layer; chill 2 hours, or until firm. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.
tried making this recipe but got stuck before i could finish it properly! i poured my 397g condensed milk into a measuring jug and it came to exactly 250ml, with none remaining for the rest of the recipe. am i being stupid? please help me out! - 15 Jan 2011
Just made this - it's very easy and the result is absolutely delicious too! The only change I would make is that there is not enough of the dark chocolate mixture. In the end I doubled the quantities for the dark layers.
Also, don't try to make both mixtures at the same time, like I did - while you're sorting out the dark layer, the white chocolate mixture will burn and you'll get brown flakes in the white mixture (but that's my fault not the recipe's fault!) - 20 Dec 2011
Just made this fudge last night. It tasted delicious. Mine turned out quite shiny. I don't think it effects the taste but it doesn't look as attractive. I used a low heat but next time I will lower the heat even more. - 31 Aug 2012
