Yields: 36 pieces
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can 14 ounces fat-free sweetened condensed milk, divided
2 pinches salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract divided
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
Red food coloring
36 conversation heart candies
- Line a 9×9” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
- 2. Place chocolate chips and half the can of sweetened condensed milk (just over 1/2 cup) in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture melts together and becomes smooth. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and one pinch of salt.
- Quickly pour and spread in prepared pan. Chill for 30 minutes.
- When chilling is up, remove pan from refrigerator. Add white chocolate chips and remaining sweetened condensed milk to a clean medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture melts together and becomes smooth. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, one pinch of salt, and red food coloring (about 3-4 drops for a light pink).
- Quickly pour over chocolate layer and spread. Immediately top with conversation hearts in a 6 x 6 grid. Let cool to room temperature and then chill until set.
- Slice into squares (1 conversation heart per square) and serve.
- Note: depending on how equally you divide your SCM, one layer may be softer than the other. You may need to store this in the refrigerator.
