Holiday Chocolate Bon Bon Cookies

1 package (6 squares) white baking chocolate
11/2 packages (12 squares) semisweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop each white chocolate square into 8 chunks; set aside.
Microwave semisweet chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on high 2 minutes, or until butter is melted, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Blend in milk and vanilla. Add flour and walnuts; mix well (dough will be stiff).
Shape 1 level tablespoonful of dough around each white chocolate chunk, enclosing white chocolate completely. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until soft and shiny (cookies will firm as they cool). Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 4 dozen cookies.
