I’m always looking for a little something extra to add to my cookie trays, and typically that comes in the form of homemade candy. Tiger Butter is quite possibly one of the most delicious treats added to the tray and is always a crowd favorite. A white chocolate and peanut butter mixture is swirled with rich, dark chocolate, making tiger like stripes. The candy is incredibly simple to make, even for the most novice home chefs. This is one of those… you may want to double the recipe, recipes!
As you all know every holiday season I make tons and tons of cookies but for some reason, they seem to disappear rather quickly. I give a lot of them away, and always serve them at the parties I host so maybe that is why. However, when it comes to making my own plate of cookies for Christmas eve desserts I sometimes find myself in a scramble because I don’t have enough cookies to fill the tray. That’s where this simple bark comes in handy. It’s quick to make, and usually I always have these ingredients already on hand so I don’t have to make an extra trip to the store which is a plus. Not only that, it’s delicious! I call it a “filler” but honestly it’s a really great recipe!
