I wanted to share with you another easy recipe that is a family favorite, Tiger Butter. This is another example (Oreo Cookie Balls was the first recipe I shared) of the candy I make that is simple yet delicious. I made mention of this in 6 Ways to Reduce Stress & Simplify the Holidays. It takes little effort and only a few simple ingredients. When finished it looks wonderful, as if you spent a lot of time making it!
This candy also is great to give as a gift or take to parties. Tiger butter is easy enough children can help make it. Its something easy my daughter and I make together. Looking for a new tradition in your home? Try making some Tiger butter together.
Tiger Butter Candy
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 16 ounces vanilla almond bark
- 6 ounces chocolate almond bark
Melt 12 ounces of vanilla almond bark, according to package directions. Mix the peanut butter into the melted almond bark. Once completely blended, pour onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Next, spread the mixture out. Then set aside.
Next, melt the chocolate almond bark, according to the package directions. Once melted, pour the chocolate on top of the vanilla/peanut butter mixture in a back and forth pattern. Before the candy sets, quickly draw a knife through the candy creating a drag pattern with the chocolate. Place in the refrigerator to set. Once set, break or cut apart the candy to the desired portion size.
This delicious treat does not need to be kept in the refrigerator. More peanut butter can be added if desired but will lengthen the setting time. If more than 3/4 of a cup of peanut butter is added then, the candy must be kept refrigerated to stay firm. You may also add more chocolate almond bark if you prefer thicker lines.
This is an elegant looking candy that takes little prep work. Great for parties (looks like you spent a lot of time making it), gifts (impress people with your cooking skills ♥) or just eat with your family. Enjoy! What are some of your favorite candies to make at the holidays?
