Place the chocolate chips or almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second bursts in the microwave.

Stir well in between each reheating until the chocolate is completely melted.

Working quickly, add the sweetened condensed milk, to taste. (More sweetened condensed milk will result in a sweeter, fudgier texture, less will result in a creamier texture.)
