  • In a double boiler, add the condensed milk, both types of chocolate, and butter.
  • Allow mixture to melt over low heat, stirring often to avoid burning.  Cook until well combined.
  • Remove from heat.  Add vanilla and peppermint extract; stir until combined.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Hit pan a few times to remove any air bubbles.  Sprinkle with crushed candy cane bits.
  • Place in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours.
