Bavarian Mints

This is a traditional holiday favorite....
Chocolate Mint and more Chocolate!

Bavarian Mints

1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 (8-ounce) milk chocolate bars
1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened chocolate
2 Tablespoons butter
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

In the top of a double boiler combine all ingredients except peppermint extract and vanilla. Stir over low heat until melted. Add peppermint and vanilla. Pour into greased 8x8 inch pan. Let cool until firm. Cut into 1-inch squares. *If you do not have access to a double boiler, the mints still can be made -- just stir constantly on low heat and do not leave unattended.
