Tiger Fudge Ingredients

tiger fudge raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll 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 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 interval until it’s melted and mixed together.

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

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

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!

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
