Directions:
In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips with 1 cup sweetened condensed milk, add vanilla. Spread half the mixture into wax paper lined 8 or 9 inch square pan. Chill 10 minutes or until firm. Hold remaining chocolate mixture at room temperature. In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt white baking pieces with remaining sweetened condensed milk (mixture will be thick). Add peppermint extract and food coloring if desired. Spread on chilled chocolate layer, chill 10 minutes longer or until firm. Spread reserved chocolate mixture on mint layer. Chill 2 hours or until firm. *NOTE: If using distilled mint, before it’s diluted by the stores to become “extract,” you’ll need to exercise great caution, adding the extremely potent mint oil a very few drops at a time until the flavor is just as you’d like!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The special climate zone created by Flathead Lake in NW Montana, the largest freshwater lake in the “lower 48” west of the Mississippi River, makes it possible to grow crops unsuited to the rest of the state—among them cherries, Christmas trees, and mint. My husband and both his brothers grew peppermint for several years. The smell of the mint as it was “distilled” permeated the air for miles around.
