Tiger Butter Fudge

  • Author: Erin
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 1 9x13 pan. 1x


Gorgeous marbles of chocolate and peanut butter make up this rich dessert.  It only takes a few minutes to make and looks like you put way more effort in it than you did!


  • 1 12-ounce bag of white chocolate or vanilla chips
  • 3/4 cup creamy, natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips


  1. Line a 9x13 cake pan or rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, making sure the foil comes up the sides an inch or two.  Set aside.
  2. Fill the bottom pan of a double boiler with 2 inches of water and bring to a good simmer.  Place the top bowl onto the top and fill with the white chocolate or vanilla chips.
  3. Stir frequently until melted - I find using a nonstick spatula to scrape the sides works well.
  4. Add the peanut butter and stir until smooth.  Add the mixture to the prepared pan and give it a few whacks on the counter to spread it out evenly.
  5. IMPORTANT NOTE:  When you lift up the top of the double boiler, there will be condensation on the bottom of the bowl.  Dry this with a dish towel before attempting to pour the mixture into the pan.  Any water droplets that touch the chocolate will cause it to seize up.
  6. Add the semi-sweet chocolate chips to the double boiler (it's okay if there's a few little streaks of the white chocolate and peanut butter still in the bowl).  Stir frequently until melted.
  7. Drizzle stripes of the melted semi-sweet chocolate onto the white chocolate and peanut butter in the pan.  Insert the sharp edge of a butter knife to pull the stripes into the opposite direction from one side of the pan to the other, creating the marbled pattern.
  8. Allow to fully set up either on the counter or in the fridge.  Once set, break apart into bark-like pieces or use a hot, sharp knife (run it under hot water) to cut into squares.
  9. Keep tiger butter in the fridge to keep the chocolate snappy, or it can be stored at room temp.


Recommended Equipment

1.5 Quart Double Boiler

Nonstick Spatula Set

Microwave:  You can use the microwave to melt the chocolate instead of a double boiler - melt at 50% power in 25 second increments, stirring well after each one until melted.  Proceed with other steps as written.
