Recipe: Milk and Chocolate Squares
– 2 cups milk chocolate chips
– cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
– can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– Pinch of salt
– Optional toppings: chopped nuts, shredded coconut, sprinkles, etc.
1. Line an 8×8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal later. Set aside.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk.
3. Microwave the mixture in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate.
4. Once the chocolate is melted, stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt until well combined.
5. Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
6. If desired, sprinkle optional toppings over the top of the chocolate mixture, gently pressing them down with the back of a spoon or spatula.
7. Refrigerate the chocolate mixture for at least 2 hours, or until firm and set.
8. Once set, lift the chocolate square out of the baking dish using the parchment paper or aluminum foil overhang. Place it on a cutting board and cut into squares or bars using a sharp knife.
9. Serve the milk and chocolate squares chilled or at room temperature.
10. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
