Tiger Butter Fudge Recipe

I was introduced to Tiger Butter Fudge this summer in North Carolina, and it was love at first bite! Tiger Butter Fudge is a delicious creamy combination of chocolate and peanut butter swirled together to resemble tiger stripes, and I've been on a mission to recreate this taste sensation. I'm thrilled with my version, and I hope you are too!

Recipe Notes

Large amounts of chocolate must be microwaved in smaller batches, or the chocolate will seize and get hard which is why the chocolate is melted in separate batches.
