Directions

  1. Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with plastic wrap.
  2. Melt white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.
  3. Place melted white chocolate in a large bowl and stir in peanut butter until well combined. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula.
  4. Melt dark chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Drizzle melted dark chocolate over the white chocolate-peanut butter mixture in stripes. Use a butter knife to make a marble pattern.
  5. Allow candy to set until it begins to firm up but is not solidified, about 45 minutes. Cut into squares.

I don't normally keep blocks of decent chocolate on hand so I substituted Nestlé Premier White Morsels for the white chocolate and a 4oz bar of Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet for the dark chocolate. I also used regular Skippy peanut butter. This recipe turned out beautifully and is absolutely delicious. Will be making this for many years to come!

If you love peanut butter, what’s not to like? Not sure I used 5oz of chocolate. I had melted milk chocolate leftover from another use and just used what I had.

Heavenly! I've made this twice and have gotten maybe 2 pieces. My family quickly devoured this. Easy to make and turns out well however you make it.

I also substituted the white baking chocolate for the Premier White Morsels and used the Reese's Peanut Butter. It was very easy to make and everyone loved it! I will add this to my have to have list!

I Really Loved This Recipe For The Tiger Butter Chocolate. It Is Really Good! The Only Think I Would Recommend Doing Differently Is... In Stead Of Using A Butter Knife To Make The Marble Pattern. I Would Recommend Using A Double Sided Tooth Pick Because, When I Make This Recipe I Made two Patches Because The First Pattern Didn't Turn Out Right And I Needed A Perfect Patch For A Class Of Mine :)So For My First Patch When I Went To Make The Pattern I Used A Butter Knife The Pattern Didn't Turn Out. So I Decided To Try The Tooth Pick And It Came Out Perfect :) Very Happy :)

This turned out SO GOOD! I used white chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate, and it worked out great. Can't wait to make again. SO EASY and SO delicious.

This is melt in your mouth good! I only had 4 ounces of white chocolate, so I only made a quarter of the recipe, which worked out great! This is so quick and easy, perfect to make for a late night chocolate fix!

I microwaved instead of double boiling this and put in freezer.
