Fudge has always held a special place in my heart as one of my all-time favorite desserts, and it never fails to impress during the holiday season.

Tiger Butter is an incredibly tasty and remarkably simple Christmas treat! All you need are three basic ingredients and a short amount of time. This delightful confection is a velvety chocolate candy infused with a luscious peanut butter essence. While it boasts the smoothness of fudge, it’s presented in the form of a bark-like treat.
Creating Tiger Butter Fudge is a breeze! To start, gather your ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and creamy peanut butter. While chunky peanut butter might add some interesting texture, it’s best to opt for creamy peanut butter for a visually pleasing swirl effect.
Begin by melting the white chocolate chips in the microwave. You can also warm the peanut butter for about 30 seconds. Combine these two ingredients and gently stir until they form a smooth and well-blended mixture.
Lay a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Pour the peanut butter mixture onto the parchment paper and use a rubber scraper to spread it into a rectangular shape. Don’t worry if it doesn’t reach the edges of the sheet.
Now, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips until they become smooth and liquid. Spoon out dollops of chocolate in lines over the peanut butter mixture.
Once all the chocolate is on the sheet, take a sharp knife and make long, smooth strokes to create your desired swirl pattern in the chocolate. Feel free to experiment with the swirls – sometimes more, sometimes less – it’s always enjoyable!
Allow the chocolate to cool and set, then cut it into 1.5-inch squares.
How to Microwave Chocolate for Melting:
Melting chocolate in the microwave can be a straightforward process if you take your time. Here are the steps to ensure successful melting:
1. Choose a glass or ceramic bowl for melting, and make sure the chocolate is fresh.
2. Start by microwaving 1 cup of chocolate chips for 1 minute.
3. After the initial minute, allow the chocolate to sit undisturbed for 2-3 minutes.
4. Gently stir the chocolate to check if it’s beginning to melt smoothly. Sometimes it may appear solid when it’s actually melting, so give it a stir or a shake to confirm.
5. If the chocolate is still too solid, microwave it for an additional 20 seconds, then let it sit again.
6. If your melted chocolate is too thick for your needs, consider adding 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil or shortening. Microwave it briefly to melt it, and then stir it into the chocolate until it reaches the desired consistency.
