How to Make Tiger Butter
- Line 13x9 pan w/ foil.
Melt white candy in microwave safe bowl (4-cup);
takes less than 3 minutes usually.
Stir in peanut butter. Spread this in pan.
- Melt chocolate chips in bowl w/ 1-2 Tbl heavy whipping cream. When well blended, drizzle over peanut butter layers & swirl w/ knife (to make 'tiger stripes').Chill & break of cut into bite-size pieces, OR:
- Optional: I have added a layer of pretzel sticks to the pan before the peanut butter layer. This makes a really tasty, crunchy alternative presentation.
Disclaimer: Kids still love the richness of the un-adulterated TB fudge.
Also, don't try to add the pretzels if making houses:
- BONUS IDEA!
I have an iron gingerbread house pan/mold.
I have made houses out of this candy b/c it holds its shape at room temperature once it's set up in the fridge.
TO do this way takes a few extra steps, mainly b/c you can only make 1/2 a house per pan, so this will need to be chilled in smaller batches.
FYI, The remaining chocolate can hold on the ledge/at room temp & even be resoftened in the microwave as needed.
Also, I do not combined the pb & chocolate until in whatever pan (or mold) you choose to use in order to preserve the stripes.
