Instructions
Bottom Layer
  1. Prepare a square pan by greasing slightly and lining with wax paper. When fudge has set this makes it easier to remove it from the pan by simply lifting out the wax paper. Alternatively use a silicon square pan.
  2. Melt together the dark chocolate and condensed milk together. I am not a fan of the microwave so use the stove. Chocolate burns easily so use a double boiler, or place a metal bowl on top of a pot of water heating on the stove. Pour into prepared pan and refrigerate until set (an hour or so).
Top Layer
  1. Melt the white chocolate and peanut butter together on the stove in the same manner as the dark chocolate. Pour on top of the bottom layer.
  2. Before you let the top layer set, decorate for the occasion. You can melt a little melted red chocolate and drizzle or pipe little hearts if you are a whiz at decoration. You can also use red sprinkles, dragees, jimmies, or tiny little hearts. They will sink in a bit into the surface but will hold on tight when it sets. It will add an additional bit of texture to your treat. Refrigerate until set.
To Serve
  1. Carefully remove the fudge from the pan. The fudge is very rich, so cut into 1 inch squares and present in little foil or paper cups used to serve truffles or chocolates. For Valentines Day I will use a small heart cookie cutter and make a few hearts… This recipe goes along way and will provide lots of gifts for family and friends.
Recipe Notes

You don’t need to use quality chocolate for this dish. You can use the baking chips you would use for cookies. I use melting wafers,  used by candy makers and sold in craft stores which sell cake and chocolate making supplies. You can also buy dark and white wafers on Amazon and have them delivered right to your door.
