If you haven’t made tiger butter before, this is the kind of recipe you’ll want to move up to a higher spot on your priority list!
Some of you might be wondering – what is tiger butter?
It’s not exactly butter. Ha, thank goodness, right? It’s like bark, think peppermint bark except not pepperminty at all. This one is straight up chocolate & peanut butter!
It’s one of those recipes that requires small input but yields high output in the form of insanely delicious bark.
I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to use smooth peanut butter in place of the chunky peanut butter, but I am so glad I used chunky because the peanut chunks add great crunch.
Tiger butter comes down to just a few ingredients
-vanilla almond bark
-crunchy peanut butter
-semi-sweet chocolate chips
-a little bit of vegetable oil
There’s really only one special thing you need for this recipe..
a jelly roll pan. I feel like this is the hardest size of pan to come by. A jelly roll pan is just a smaller version of a rimmed baking sheet. A baking sheet is 12×18 and a jelly roll pan is 10×15.
If you want to use a baking sheet instead of a jelly roll pan, DOUBLE this recipe. If you want to use a 9×13 inch baking pan, go ahead and follow the recipe, your tiger butter will be thicker, but I see no problem with that!
