Tiger Butter Fudge

Tiger Fudge, or Tiger Butter Fudge, is one of our favorite candies to make for Christmas (really, we love it any time of the year, but it always makes the list for Christmas baking).

This fudge has the consistency of a soft and smooth fudge with a rich chocolate and peanut butter flavor. It only requires four ingredients and comes together in just a few minutes in the microwave (no candy thermometer or special tools needed).

How to make Tiger Butter Fudge

The descriptions below correlate to the photos numbered above.

  1. Place white chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl
  2. Add in the peanut butter — Use a thick store brand (I don’t recommend runny/natural peanut butters for this fudge). Microwave chocolate and peanut butter in bursts until smooth and melted.
  3. With a silicone spatula, scrape the melted white chocolate and peanut butter in the prepared pan.
  4. Smooth into an even layer.
  5. Now melt the two chocolates (milk and semi-sweet) with some more peanut butter until smooth.
  6. Spread over the white chocolate layer and use a table knife to swirl together.
  7. Swirled fudge is ready to set up in the fridge. Chill for 30 minutes until firm and ready to cut into pieces and serve.

Quick Tips

  • Use high quality white chocolate for best results for both a better melt and a better flavor. My favorite brands for this Tiger Butter Fudge are Ghirardelli® and Guittard®.) Nestle® will also get good results.
  • To avoid burning chocolate, stir the it often in between the melting process (every 30 seconds) and stir it for at least 20-25 seconds in between each microwave burst. Remember, the chocolate is still melting even outside of the microwave.
  • Don’t allow any liquid near the chocolate. Any moisture will cause the chocolate to seize and harden.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups high quality white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, separated
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (or use 1 additional cup of semi-sweet chocolate)

Instructions

  • PREPARE: Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang (foil also works). If using foil, lightly spritz with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE: Add all the white chocolate chips and 3/4 cup peanut butter to a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir for 20 seconds. Return to the microwave and microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 10 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Don't microwave once the chips are mostly melted; just continue to stir until smooth. Pour into the prepared 9x13 pan.
  • MILK AND SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE: Put all the semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips to a large bowl along with remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir for 20 seconds. Return to the microwave and microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 10 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Don't microwave once the chips are mostly melted; just continue to stir until smooth. Drizzle chocolate layer over white chocolate layer and use a table knife to swirl the layers together. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour, until chilled and firm.
  • SERVE: Using the overhang, lift the block of fudge from the pan. Cut into small pieces and serve. Store leftovers in the fridge (they get melty at room temperature). These bars store in the fridge for up to one week.
