TIGER FUDGE INGREDIENTS

You will need:

  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Chocolate Chips: I prefer milk chocolate chips in this recipe, but you could use dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips if you prefer. If you want to bump up the peanut butter flavor even further, you could replace one cup of the white chocolate chips with peanut butter chips.

.Peanut Butter: You’ll want to use creamy peanut butter so that your fudge remains smooth and creamy without little bits of crunchy peanuts.

HOW TO MAKE THIS TIGER FUDGE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Melt the white chocolate chips and smooth peanut butter together in the microwave in 30-second increments. Be sure to stir after each time until it’s melted and mixed together. 

STEP TWO: Pour into a 9×13 pan lined with parchment paper.

PRO TIP: The parchment paper makes clean up a snap, plus it makes it much easier to remove from your pan when it’s time to slice into squares!

STEP THREE: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave in short increments, 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each time. 

PRO TIP: You can use ½ teaspoon of vegetable oil or coconut oil to thin out your chocolate if you’d like. 

STEP FOUR: Pour the melted chocolate chips over the white chocolate peanut butter mixture in the pan.

STEP FIVE: Using a butter knife, make chocolate swirls by dragging the tip of the knife around the pan.

PRO TIP: Have your kids help swirl the milk chocolate chips into the peanut butter mixture to create tiger stripes. They’ll have a blast making the fancy designs!

STEP SIX: Let sit for two hours or more until hardened.

STEP SEVEN: Using a sharp knife, cut into squares to serve.

HOW TO SERVE

This creamy fudge is especially perfect for serving at holiday parties on a sweets tray or to give as a tasty DIY gift to all your friends and family who are peanut butter lovers.

Don’t limit yourself to only enjoying this treat during the holidays though. Make this 3-ingredient fudge any time of year for a simple and tasty treat.

STORAGE

ON THE COUNTER: Once your delicious fudge is made and sliced into small squares, you’ll want to store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Use sheets of wax paper to layer the fudge inside a tin or container to store. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze fudge in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

I’m not sure there has ever been a better flavor combo than chocolate and peanut butter and I’m confident your gang will love this homemade tiger fudge as much as we do! The perfect blend of peanut butter and rich chocolate flavors create this amazing peanut butter fudge. Creamy, decadent and full of vivid tiger stripes, the whole family will love this irresistible treat.

FAQ

Can I use semisweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips?

You could replace the milk chocolate chips with either dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips.

Can I use crunchy peanut butter in this tiger butter fudge recipe?

You don’t want to use peanut butter that has tiny little peanut pieces as it will take away from the smooth texture of the fudge. Use smooth peanut butter only.

Does the fudge need to be refrigerated?

 The fudge does not need to be refrigerated. You can store the fudge on the counter in an airtight container for up to a week.
