Easy Peasy Fudge Using "Left Over" Chocolate {Kids In The Kitchen}

I use the term left over chocolate in a laughing way. There is no left over chocolate in this house, only chocolate I hide in hopes that my husband and three year old princess won't devour without restraint while I'm at work.  This is a recipe I do every year after Christmas and Easter.  Using solid and hollow bunnies for the bulk of the chocolate and added 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to balance out the sweet factor.  Don't get me wrong I have a sweet tooth, but toning down the sweetness helps ensure I can eat more fudge before hitting the "IT'S TOO SWEET" wall.

Break the bunnies into smaller pieces and put in a glass bowl.
Fit the bowl into the top of a pot. Fill the pot with enough water
to touch the bottom of the bowl.  Once melted,
add one can of sweetened condensed milk and stir well.
Kids can help peel candy that is wrapped. This is a great
chance to use the 'less then perfect candy'. And they will get to use some counting
skills as well. You need an even number of candy's in each line.
Prepare an 8x8 square dish with wax paper. Pour your melted chocolate
into the pan, spread out and press the candy into lines.
Let chill for at least 30 minutes and cut into squares.
Ingredient List:
2 1/2 cups chocolate
1 can sweetened condensed milk
assorted candy

 Yield: Makes approximately 24 pieces depending on the amount of candy you use.

I think my kids would complain if i stole their candy for this, but perhaps with some negotiating... or a trip to LW after the holiday to get cheaper candy... yum!!!!
