1/4 cup milk
1 (6-oz.) package (1 cup) semi-sweet real chocolate chips
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup toffee chips

In a large microwave-safe mixer bowl, combine the butter, milk and chocolate chips. Microwave on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until butter and chocolate chips are melted. Stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth (2 to 3 minutes).

By hand, stir in 1/2 cup toffee chips. Spread in a buttered 8-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons toffee chips over top; gently press into fudge.

Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 to 1-1/2 hours). Cut into squares. Store refrigerated in airtight container.

Makes 3 dozen.

NOTE: Chocolate-coated and plain toffee chips are available in the baking section of the supermarket.

In a 2-quart saucepan, combine butter, milk and chocolate chips. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter and chocolate chips are melted ( 5 to 10 minutes). Place chocolate mixture in larger mixer bowl. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue as directed above.
