Spray 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Press parchment paper or waxed paper over bottom and up sides of pan. Coarsely chop 1 square semisweet chocolate; set aside for garnish. Coarsely chop remaining semisweet chocolate.

Combine white chocolate and half of frosting in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Add 2 to 3 drops peppermint extract and food coloring; mix well. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until set.

Add remaining 2 to 3 drops peppermint extract; mix well. Stir 1 to 2 minutes, allowing mixture to cool. Carefully pour semisweet chocolate mixture over white chocolate layer; spread evenly. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes or until set.

Lift fudge from pan using parchment paper; carefully invert onto cutting board and remove paper. Place reserved semisweet chocolate and oil in small microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Drizzle melted chocolate over fudge.
