In Canada, our sweetened condensed milk comes in a 300ml can (which equals only 10 US fluid oz, not 14). A quick look on the Eagle Brand Canada site turned up the same recipe using the 300ml size. For those who live in Canada, here are the ingredient amounts: 10 (1oz/28g each) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares*; 1 can (300ml) Regular Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk; 2 tsp. vanilla extract; 1 pkg (170g) white baking chocolate*; 1 tbsp. peppermint extract; Few drops green food coloring (Optional); *If you want to use chocolate chips, I have done the conversions. Note: For those who may be thinking that 10oz equals 1 1/4 cups, remember that is in liquid form and liquid is measured by volume, whereas solids are measure by weight. 2 squares at 1oz each (2oz) = 1/3 cup; 4 squares (4oz) = 2/3 cup; 6 squares (6oz) = 1 cup; 170g = 5.99oz or approx. 6oz; 175g = 6.17oz or approx. 6oz; Substitute 1 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips for the 10oz of baking squares (6oz + 4oz = 10oz - see above); Substitute 1 cup of white chocolate chips (6oz - see above) for the 170g of white baking chocolate. The preparation is the same except that it states to add the vanilla extract after you remove the melted chocolate from the heat, to use parchment paper, and to use an 8 inch pan. The second time I made this, I made the chocolate layers in two batches. This allowed both layers to be even, and I also found the first time around that I had to reheat the chocolate after it sat anyway.
