- In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine baking chips, condensed milk, flavoring and remaining butter. Microwave on high 1 minute; stir until smooth. (If chips aren't completely melted, microwave in 10- to 20-second intervals until melted; stir until smooth.) Stir in bacon; pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or until firm.

- Freeze option: Wrap fudge in waxed paper, then in foil. Place in freezer containers and freeze. To thaw, bring wrapped fudge to room temperature.

Followed recipe exactly, except did on stove. This was too sweet and tasted off somehow. I made three types of fudge for a Christmas party and this was the only kind left. It was barely touched. If I make it again, will try sprinkling sea salt on top or more bacon or a different brand of white chocolate.
