Super easy and VERY tasty!! I love peanut butter in just about anything, though!! A little hint for melting chocolate, especially semi-sweet as it has less fat content. When melting the chips, (I use the microwave)throw in a little shortening (I used about a tablespoon for this recipe which I converted to 42 servings). This increases the fat which helps the chocolate melt smoother, stir easily, and gives it a nice gloss. Some people use a little butter, but since the water content in butter or margarine can be high, it may make your chocolate seize! Hope this tip helps!!Read More
This was my first time making this and I was hoping for more. I followed the recipe exactly, used the suggestion to cut before cool and they look beautiful. But, honestly, it tastes like you took a piece of white chocolate, a handful of semi-sweet chips & a teaspoon of peanut butter and ate it off a spoon! I guess that's what it's supposed to taste like, but is wasn't anything spectacular!Read More

This recipe is super easy and super good. It simply melts in your mouth. One suggestion I have though is to cut into pieces while still slightly warm and then chill. Cutting it after it has cooled caused the tops to crack and the appearance was not as nice.
I got thie recipe years ago from a friend and everyone LOVES it. The only thing I will add that makes it even easier is that after it has chilled and it hard, I dump it out of the pan and break it into bite size pieces. No cutting needed and the "bark" look is great with the marbled top. Plus, I get to eat the crumbs after I've broken it all! :)
Peanut butter and chocolate is a never miss combo. However, I haven't used a double-boiler to melt chocolate in years. I highly recommend using a microwave to melt chocolate. If you're using chocolate chips in this recipe -theres approximately 2 and 2/3 cups of chips per pound of chocolate. I microwave darker chocolates (milk, semi-sweet, german) at one minute intervals on full power- stirring in between. I've found that white chocolate melts faster, so use 30 second intervals for that. On this recipe, I microwaved the white chocolate for two 30-second intervals, stirring in between, then added the peanut butter for 30 more seconds. Also, I used a smaller pan than what this recipe calls for, I like my TB a little thicker.
HELPFUL TIPS THAT HELPED ME: Don't stress over the 1lb. You can either use 2 2/3C or just the 1 bag of chocolate you have (which has 2C). Either way, this works out just fine. Also, crunchy or creamy pb is fine!! If you're not a nut person, know the creamy pb tastes just as heavenly [if not better] than the crunchy!! I line my pan with foil since I find that easier. I have my ingredients out and each chocolate in a separate bowl to microwave ahead of time to save time! Melt the white chocolate for 1 min, then add pb ...then continue to melt for 10 sec. intervals until completely melted. Be sure that you've stirred for a good 15 sec. or so each time you take out of microwave. Then I melt the semi-chocolate for a minute, stir for 15-20 sec, and continue microwaving until completely melted. I don't bother swirling. I thought it looked prettier w/o doing it, so again.. whatever is fine! :) I actually cut while it's just set but still kinda warm so it's easier or take out my chilled fudge until it's closer to room temp or you will crack the fudge while cutting instead of smooth cuts. Always have a slicing motion over and over ....not a sawing one.
I am giving this 4 starts only because the chocolate overpowers the peanut butter mixture as the recipe is written. I first made it as written and the second time around made it as follows, which I would rate as a 5 star recipe: I made the peanut butter mixture as written, but poured it into an 8X8 pan for a thicker "fudge," then topped it with about 1/2 the amount of chocolate called for. I cut these and mailed them to my family as part of their Christmas package. Everyone raved about it!
Simply delicious!!Very easy....and foolproof....This candy was a favorite! I use crock pots to melt the ingredients...Crock pots are easy to clean and as the ingredients melt, I am free to do something else. Of course, whenever I check on the progress, I do stir the melting chocolates. Also, the candy sets up quickly because of the refrigeration....I highly recommend this recipe.
I have always loved Tiger Butter. I was so excited to find this recipe! This stuff is sooooo good. I made batches and batches of it and everyone raved about it. They liked it better than my fudge and I make superior fudge. I didn't have the 10x15 pan so I used a 13x9 and 11x7 pan and it came out great. Fantastic recipe!!!!
Delicious! This was so easy to make! I melted the white chocolate / pb combination in the microwave on a lower power and stirred occasionally. I also melted the chocolate the same way (I added a bit of shortening to the mixture, I always find that this helps the melting / stirring process nicely!) This recipe is simple and delicious! Perfect for gift giving!
This is a wonderful "fudge" and couldn't be easier to make! I used the microwave to melt the chocolates - make sure to use MEDIUM power so as not to burn them, though. This will be going on my list of Christmas favorites!
I made this to go into the "goodie bags" I gave to my co-workers this year for Christmas. I followed the recipe as directed. I melted the semisweet chocolate in the microwave according to the package instructions. And since I had used the last of my parchment paper for baking cookies, I used wax paper to line my pan and had no problems.
This was my first time making this and I was hoping for more. I followed the recipe exactly, used the suggestion to cut before cool and they look beautiful. But, honestly, it tastes like you took a piece of white chocolate, a handful of semi-sweet chips & a teaspoon of peanut butter and ate it off a spoon! I guess that's what it's supposed to taste like, but is wasn't anything spectacular!
mmm! We made this fudge, and had to make it again the next week because demand was so high! we have given the recipe out, as well. we've used creamy pb because that's what we have, and it works great!
If I could give this 10 stars I would!! So good and easy. I added m&m's to the white chocolate/peanut butter mixture after it was melted.
I used crunchy peanut butter and added some to the dark chocolate mixture as well. My daughter had a lot of fun swirling it to make the 'tiger'. I let it set up slightly in the fridge before cutting it - I used a pasta measuring tool that I never use for pasta - it has a curved edge on one side that was perfect to use as a blade. I imagine you could cut it with a pizza cutter as well. We got awesome comments on this candy - it's rich and creamy. We will definitely make this every Christmas. Thanks!
so easy to do and though personally I find it too rich, people love it! (one describes them as "deadly")
Very good & very easy! I might sprinkle toasted chopped peanuts on this next time. Thank you, Nancy!
Very good! It's a simple recipe, so it has a simple taste. That's partially what makes it so appealing, though.
The fudge tastes good, but it does not deserve the 5 stars given in previous reviews. I had high hopes for this fudge after seeing the great reviews and am very disappointed after making it. As a huge fan of peanut butter, even I thought the peanut butter taste was too much. Another down side it that it does not hold up well unless you stick it in the fridge. The peanut butter and white chocolate mixture on the bottom becomes melted and gooey within 30 minutes of having it out of the fridge and sticks to your plate, which is sloppy. I would not want to serve this to guests at a party. While it is not absolutely terrible, it is something I'd make more for kids or myself to have at home.
I made this recipe for a bake sale and it sold out! There are two types of people in the dessert world- people who like fudge and people who hate it. Luckily, this recipe satisfies both in that people that don't like fudge like it because it most resembles a chocoloate bar and people who like fudge like it because it resembles fudge's richness. When I made it I doubled the batch and made the recipe in a 13x9 inch pan which was the perfect thickness for smaller cut pieces. As well, one other thing to remember is when you have taken it out of the fridge to cut it, make sure you let it sit out for about an hour or so firs so that it is easier to cut. I learned the hard way by cutting it right when it came out of the fridge and the pieces were so hard to cut and come out not so clean looking. All in all though, great recipe. I plan to make it again!
I have made this a few times now. I prefer to use milk chocolate in place of the semi-sweet and creamy peanut butter in place of the crunchy. This is just my personal preference! Delicious candy indeed!!!!
Oh my, this was sweet and delicious! Followed the recipe as is, except I used the microwave to melt the ingredients. Kraft crunchy peanut butter has never tasted so good!
This was tasty and easy. I didn't read the tips before I made it, but I'll try some next time. I did during my process of making the candy start melting the chocolate over the stove, but quickly switched to the microwave. I also mixed the peanut butter with the semisweet chocolate instead of the white chocolate, because I found the semisweet chocolate to be a bit overpowering. In the end, I was pretty pleased with the result and will make this again. It's just too easy to make to not give it another go.
This is so good....I made it for Christmas and everyone thought it was yummy. Will definitely make it again.
This was sooo easy to make. Tastey too! I just used the microwave for both. the peanut butter mixture first then the chocolate. The butter/fudge is so pretty.
I love Tiger Butter, I used to purchase this at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I do not use chunky peanut butter because the tiger butter I always bought was always smooth in taste and texture. The taste if this can vary depending on the quality of chocolate you use. I tempered my chocolate so I would not have to refrigerate.
This was fabulous! I did use creamy peanut butter instead, but that's just my preference. Absolutely everyone loved it. I've received about a dozen requests for the recipe but I might not share this one! It is also incredibly easy, which is a big plus at this time of the year. Thank you so much!!
This was the easiest, tastiest fudge I've made. The only hard part was finding enough white chocolate. My only advice is that I let mine chill too long and some of it broke and cracked when I cut it. It was much easier to cut when it wasn't rock hard and cold straight from the fridge. Very good recipe.
I thought this stuff was awesome, but the second batch I made I used creamy peanut butter, and then crushed up just a very few pretzels and tossed them in with the pb and white chocolate mixture before pouring it into the pan. It tastes great either way, but I like a little crunch with my desserts, and the crunchy peanut butter was too much crunch for me.
So simple to make. I have often thrown this together after dinner for a bed time snack for the kids. It's so quick to put together and it tastes amazing. Love it!
I am not a fan of sweets- but wanted to try out this recipe and see if it resembled the Tiger Butter-fudge that you get at chocolate shops. It really does!! I brought the batch to work to share with co-workers and it disappeared within an hour. Will definitely make this again.
My family LOVED it! Very easy to make! Planning on making more soon!
After having leftover melted white chocolate from making the candy corn bark, I decided to use it up making this recipe. I didn't have a full pound, and I used creamy peanut butter. It still turned out wonderful - a little on the thin side because of my lack of the correct amounts of ingredients, but the taste is just right.
These are so easy, and they are AMAZING!! As a bonus - they look beautiful! Every person who tried one asked for the recipe. My husband has claimed this as our new holiday tradition. :o)
This Stuff is simply addicting! I used wax paper at the bottom of a 10X8 (instead of 10x15) glass pirex it still came out perfect. Very Yummy!
I make this every year as Christmas gifts. My neighbors can't wait for tiger butter every year.
These were very sweet, I felt like I was making a mess and doing it wrong when I poured the semi-sweet chocolate on top and I thought it had all meshed. Well they turned out great to my surprise and I will make these again!
I made this over the weekend and used 2 cups of peanut butter and everyone LOVES it! You get more of a flavor of a Reese Cup and my family loves Reese's any way they can get them!
Yum! My family loved this. Our daughter used to get this all of the time at a candy shop when we lived in Ga. I must say this was just as good! Melts in your mouth. I melted everything in the microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring in between. I used about a Tablespoon of shortening in the semi sweet chips to help with the melting. This was so quick and easy. I've already passed on the recipe!
This is a great tasting, super easy recipe! I made the slight adaptation of only adding 1 cup PB to the white chocolate and the 1/3 cup to the dark chocolate because I was concerned about being able to marble it well enough. Personally, I think that this solves the cutting issue as it makes the dark chocolate part a little softer. And taste-wise it is great! I also used creamy PB for the white chocolate part and extra crunchy for the dark part (because I didn't have enough crunchy for all) and that worked great too, although I would love to try this with all crunchy PB.
This recipe is supereasy. I used a 10x10 pan because I didn't want the pieces to be too thin. Next time I think I will use more semisweet chocolate, as I think the saltiness in the peanut butter was too strong for my liking.
This was DELICIOUS and sooo easy, as long as you have a double broiler. I had trouble cutting it pretty so it's all broken into bite-sized chunks - intentional chaos! Tastes awesome, especially if you like peanut butter and chocolate together. N
This is very delicious, but I would recommend not refrigerating it at all, and keeping it tightly sealed. I failed to do either if those things and it dried out and lost creaminess and richness very quickly.
Whoa! This is seriously good and addictive! I only had 12 ounces of white chocolate so I subsituted 2 squares of vanilla confectioner's bark/coating and used 2 cups of creamy peanut butter. I actually microwaved the peanut butter/white chocolated on 70% power and did the same for the dark chocolate. Easy and quick! I normally make peanut butter balls for Christmas, but I think this recipe is better and much easier and certainly less labor intensive. THANKS! This is one of my new favorite recipes!
This tastes good, but it's not tiger butter. My wife and I both agree that there is no peanut butter in tiger butter, at least not in what we get from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I used creamy peanut butter and used some butter, and it got it to the consistency of normal Tiger Butter, but still too peanut tasting.
whoa...yum. Easy to make and very delicious. I think much better tasting than fudge, but I am not really a fudge person. I put mine into a 9x13 inch pan, but I think next time I might use a slightly smaller pan to make it a bit thicker. I chilled mine and then just flipped it right out of the pan onto a cutting board. I used a hot knife to help get clean cuts. For those who thought it was overly sweet, I would recommend using good quality bittersweet chocolate. Ghiradelli is easy to find in your grocery store.
Divine! Melts in your mouth! I used 3c. each of white and semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 1/2c. chunky peanut butter.
I thought this recipe was great! To add a little "salty" to it, I crushed up pretzels and put them in between the peanut butter and chocolate. I also stuck them in the freezer so they were firm when serving. Very Yummy!
this was so easy and for a double boiler i just put one pan on top of the other. i did cut it while it was slightly warm so it was easier to cut. i loved it!!
Dear Lord.... this is *heaven* I used a bag of white chips, a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips and a small jar of crunchy PB- used the microwave ike others said.. spread on to non stick foil on a cookie sheet- and YUMMMMM!!!
I never heard of Tiger Butter before so I was curious enough to make it. Turned out great even after using the full 20 oz. package of white chocolate. I also melted the white chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave and after they were chilled I just broke them apart. Very simple. This will be added to my holiday recipes.
I think this is a five star recipe when you up the peanut butter amount to between 1 3/4 and 2 cups. I use creamy peanut butter and prefer that in this recipe to the chunky. I make this candy every year to give as gifts to co-workers, friends and family and everyone raves about how good it is. It is super simple to make and so incredibly delicious!! Just up that peanut butter amount and you will have a real winner on your hands! :) And don't fuss with a double boiler (unless you want to). Coarsely chop your white chocolate (I use white almond bark) and place in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between just until melted. Then stir in the peanut butter (no need to microwave now, the heat from the almond bark will warm the peanut butter and blend it beautifully). Pour into your prepared pan then heat your chocolate chips the same way, then proceed with swirling and chilling.
Followed the recipe exactly, except I added a teaspoon of shortening with the semisweet chocolate. I cannot emphasize enough how EASY this recipe is, and how great it turns out! Used a small "bread loaf" pan for a deep fudge. Cut it after an hour in the fridge with a large knife.
Super easy (although I had a tough time getting the white choco and PB to melt smoothly)....they are mouth-watering delicious! Thank you!
Very rich. Pretty dang good.
This is pretty good, but next time I might cut down on the amount of milk chocolate used (personal preference). I used white almond bark and milk chocolate almond bark.
This was so easy!! Definitely a hit! I am adding this to my top rated desserts. Thanks!
Good... very sweet. Makes a lot. Easy!
awsome recipe, super easy and really really good, I made it twice, once with creamy peanut butter and once with crunchy, and both were equally as good!
Super easy, super tasty, super portable.
This is fantastic! Very easy, very quick and very rich. It's a very forgiving recipe too. I have made this quite a few times and I don't even bother to measure anymore, I just guestimate. Great recipe for peanut butter and chocolate lovers like me.
It's very good!! I used Jif regular peanut butter and it was delicious. My parents liked it alot...since they brought Tiger Butter home from the Ozarks and suggested that I make it...lol I love to experiment with new recipes...needless to say they loved it. They just don't know they are getting some for Easter!! Hope to take a picture and post picture. Thanks for sharing!!
very very rich!!
A very easy and quick treat. Absolutely one of the best. Even the pickiest of my kid's friends enjoy it!! Instead of cooking in a pot though, I like to melt my ingredients in the microwave. It's a lot easier and makes for a very simple clean-up.
This will be a new Holiday tradition in our house. I had everyone asking me for the recipe. It makes plenty to eat and still have enough to share with family & friends. I used smooth peanut butter instead crunchy and I also used the white chocolate bark in place of the regular white chocolate.
I made this today for my Christmas gift baskets. I wanted something a little different from my usual fudge recipe. It is not as rich as fudge, but still a great sweet treat! It was also a little easier to put together. This will be a keeper for sure. Thanks for a great recipe!
It's the middle of summer, I'm craving chocolate & peanut butter, I used Ingredient Search and found this recipe--love the name. Easiest candy I've ever made and one of the best. I'm not fond of white chocolate, but when combined with peanut butter, it becomes a velvety, buttery base for the melted chocolate. I was out of parchment paper, so I buttered a pan, but I will use parchment paper in the future. I echo the words of reviewer prissy, it melts in your mouth. Thank you Nancy for my new favorite candy recipe.
Delicious and shamefully easy. I used the microwave to melt everything per the package directions and for my very first attempt at making fudge it went surprisingly well.
This was pretty good fudge and really easy to make. At another reviewer's suggestion, I microwaved white chocolate for two 30-second intervals, stirring in between, and then added the peanut butter for 30 more seconds. Then I microwaved the semi-sweet chocolate in two 45 second intervals. I would have used a smaller pan than this to make it thicker. I also cut the fudge when it got harder but before chilling it so it wasn't too hard.
I was disappointed. After reading all the great reviews, I expected something more. In my opinion it was just a very large chocolate bar.
Easiest treat you will ever make for your favorite Reese's peanut butter cup lover! Be sure to allow mixture to cool to room temp before slicing (do not refridgerate).
Super easy and pretty quick! I used half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate that was leftover from a batch of billionaires, but that was fine. I couldn't quite get the swirls looking as artistic as the photos uploaded, but I will do better next time!
My roommate and I just made this in our tiny college apartment for a football tailgate this weekend...it is so delicious that we're worried it won't make it to the tailgate as we have been snacking on it all night! I cannot begin to say how easy it was and how quick we we made it with a double broiler (so the chocolate wouldn't burn). After the chocolate cooled in the pan for a little bit, we put it in the freezer for 20 minutes and it had already set up! We cut it into squares with a pizza cutter while it wasn't too firm and put it back into the freezer for 10 more minutes to continue setting. We thought it would be necessary to use crunchy peanut butter because that adds a nice, textural element since it's pretty rich. We've already had people in the apartment ask what we were making because it smelled so good in the hall!
Very Pretty Candy when making this and thumbs up from everyone! I did half chunky and half creamy peanut butter and it came out perfect!
Wow!! Rich, decadent, chocolate! This was not as hard as I thought it would be. But since it was my first time I was a little nervouse. I ended up not swiriling with the knife enough, so next time I will do more swirling. Other than that theese are really good treats!
The pb/white chocolate flavor and consistency was great. The chocolate chips not so much--they were fine for the first day, but then 'bloomed' while becoming progressively more crumbly and the flavor was only so-so. I think I'll remake this with another kind of chocolate.
My teenage daughter made several batches of these as Christmas presents for her friends and teachers at school. They were a BIG hit. Everyone loved them and they all wanted more!
I don't like chocolate, but everybody that eats this says it is amazing. My only complaint is that it gets a little harder than a typical fudge. Will definately be making every Christmas for my cookie trays I give away.
Great recipe, super easy. TASTES GREAT!!!
Discovered this several years ago and make it every Christmas as a gift to family and friends While making this for Christmas 2018 I decided to replace half the semi sweet chocolate with unsweetened dark baking chocolate. I like my chocolate on the dark side
This is so easy and turns out as good as the Tiger's Butter fudge they sell at the fudge shops. Followed recipe exactly and turns out every time!
This recipe is super simple, quick, and yummy. The chunky peanut butter gives it a different texture than most fudge, and it's nice to have something a little different.
Awesome! Everyone loved it! Will make for every Christmas!
this was very simple and delicious! It was a little too sweet for even my taste (I love sweets normally), so I gave it only 4 stars.
Remarkably delicious recipe! Wow! It really tastes like it came from a fudge factory. I brought this and 5 other recipes to my hubby's work as a Christmas spread and this was gone immediately. I'll make more for the weekend. Too easy not to.
This was really good. Made it for the first time this year for the Christmas "goodie" bag that I give all the kids. Fast, easy. I highly recommend using the microwave on this as other reviewers have mentioned. Added the 1 tbs of shortening to the chocolate. Crunchy peanut butter is a must! Melts in your mouth!
Oh my goodness, this is wonderful! Extremely rich but delicious! And in addition to that it's extremely easy to make. What more could we want! Thanks for the great recipe!
LOVE IT! I made this in the microwave and it turned out perfect. The whole pan was gone by the end of the night...not by me alone of course ;)
made recipe exactly as stated. just broke it into pieces after it hardened. what's not to like? chocolate and pb!! thanks! love it!
Made these and sent to hubby's work for all the folks along with some other goodies and they raved about them. Will be doing every Christmas now. Followed recipe exactly and cut them into squares while still a little soft. Melt in your mouth!
So easy and very tasty, thanks for sharing!
I love this recipe! It was so easy and fun to make! I will make it again for my fiance!
Super easy and delicious! Husband loved it! Packaged and gave as little Chritmas gifts. Thanks for a great and quick recipe.
So easy and delicious!
Absolutely, positively devine.
