Tiger Butter Fudge Recipe Easy

If you are looking for an easy candy to make for Christmas, wait until you try this tiger butter fudge recipe that’s super easy to make! Simply mix some peanut butter with chocolate to make this sweet treat the whole family will love.

I love a good recipe that whips up easily and tastes like it was professionally prepared.

And this recipe for tiger butter fudge homemade hits the mark!

You can make it in minutes and it is a serious crowd-pleaser.

I remember one of my friends’ moms making this recipe way back when I was in high school and I was hooked from the moment she sliced up some bars.

She used to make Christmas cookies for like 2 weeks straight making a different batch every day and tiger butter fudge was one of them.

You can’t beat the creamy combination of peanut butter with both white and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

It is a decadent and fun recipe to make that is perfect for the holidays because when you’re done? The fudge almost looks like it has tiger stripes.

I know a lot of people tend toward making peppermint bark for the holidays. But to me, there’s nothing quite like chocolate and peanut butter.

Am I right?

Thanks to my good friend Jen from Midwest Life and Style for pulling together such a beautiful group of talented bloggers with the most incredible holiday sweet treat inspiration. If you are coming from Nicolle’s from Our Tiny Nest, welcome!

We recently moved to a beautiful 1850 Farmhouse with 10 acres of gardens, sculptures, and statues.

I’ve been gardening for over 20 years and enjoy helping beginner gardeners find their inner green thumb, as well as discover a love for all things plants and flowers. I love to bring the outdoors inside my home too.

But I’m also a MAJOR foodie who loves to cook and entertain. So you’ll find a lot of quick, easy, and delicious recipe ideas that you can whip up in a snap.

Like this festive cranberry crockpot pork loin that takes minutes to prepare but tastes so good.

And my favorite artichoke dip and this quick and easy proscuitto and brie appetizer works well for the holidays too.

I hope you enjoy visiting my home today and hope you come back so we can grow stuff and create beautiful spaces together.

What is Tiger Butter Fudge Made Of?

What I love most about this recipe is the simplicity! Because there are only three ingredients.

Isn’t that the best?

The creamy combination of white and semi-sweet chocolate chips with peanut butter whips up pretty quickly to make this crazy good homemade dessert that your family and friends will rave about.

Which makes it a simple dish to make for the holidays or really any time of year. But I prefer to make it more around the holidays because it’s a great dish for cookie exchanges, small holiday gifts, and to share at Christmas parties.

When you are finished making tiger butter fudge, both chocolates create a marbelized design that looks a little like tiger stripes.

How Long Does Tiger Butter Last in the Fridge?

This tiger butter fudge recipe should last about 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.

That is if you can avoid eating it all before then! LOL!

It is so good, I doubt you’ll need the 2-3 weeks in the fridge, but if you are planning when the best time to make it before Christmas, you’ll want to give yourself no more than 2-3 weeks.
