16-oz. light, dark or white chocolate confectioners coating (candy drops)
1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk
Melt candy in double boiler over hot tap water, changing water as it cools, until chocolate is melted. Put milk in microwave for a minute, heating to same temperature as chocolate. Lightly spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. Dab out any puddles.
Add milk to chocolate and stir well. Work quickly using a stiff spoon because mixture thickens quickly. Pour in pan and let set at room temperature.
