Tiger Butter Bark recipe with white chocolate, chunky peanut butter, and swirls of semi sweet chocolate. This candy is perfect for your Christmas party desserts table. Yum.
I always loved the tiger butter fudge at Disneyland in Anaheim.
Whenever I would walk past the huge Emporium gift store on Main Street, I would glance over at the tiger butter fudge and think about how I would buy it later when it was treat time in the afternoon. It was simply one of the best sweets, in my opinion, that Disneyland had to offer.
For some mind boggling reason, tiger butter disappeared from the park a few years ago. The good news is, this tiger butter bark tastes very similar to the tiger butter fudge, just in bark form.
And, the better news is, its SUPER easy to throw together. There are only 4 ingredients involved in this recipe and it takes about 10 minutes to prepare the bark where it is ready for its fridge time.
Tips for this tiger butter fudge candy recipe (tiger butter bark):
- You can use vanilla almond bark instead of the candiquik for the white chocolate part. If you choose to transform this to a tiger butter recipe almond bark, I would use creamy peanut butter, rather than chunky, since you will already have nuts. However, if you like the mixture of peanuts and almonds together, go for it, and use the chunky.
- After you pour the melted semi sweet chocolate over the peanut butter/white chocolate mixture, it is easiest to use a small spatula to swirl the chocolate through the mixture. You really cannot go wrong with how you swirl. You can swirl very carefully and create very distinct lines, or swirl all over the place and go for more of a blended look (like how we swirled).
- If you are using candiquik and prefer a smooth bark, just substitute the chunky peanut butter for creamy. It will still be an absolutely delicious bark.
With the holiday season upon us, this bark in a festive gift bag or plate, would be a fabulous hostess gift to bring to your next holiday party.
After tasting the deliciousness of tiger butter again, I want to try to make a tiger butter caramel apple soon. I’m imagining the crunch of the sweet apples with the chocolate, peanut butter and white chocolate – how can it not be amazing? Stay tuned.
Enjoy your tiger butter bark!
