Some of you might be wondering – what is tiger butter?

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.

Ingredients to make tiger butter

  • vanilla almond bark
  • crunchy peanut butter
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • a little bit of vegetable oil or coconut 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!

How to make tiger butter

  1. Line a jelly roll pan (10×15) with aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium pot over medium-low heat, melt the vanilla almond bark and chunky peanut butter, stirring occasionally until melted.
  3. At the same time, in a second smaller pot over medium-low heat, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips and vegetable oil, stirring occasionally until melted.
  4. Pour the almond bark mixture onto the lined pan and smooth evenly. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the almond bark, then use a knife or small spatula to swirl the 2 together. Place the pan in the fridge to chill until firm. Once firm, break the tiger butter into smaller pieces. Store in an airtight container.

How to store tiger butter

After breaking the bark into pieces (or cutting with a knife), store it in an airtight container or ziplock bag on the counter for up to 2 weeks.

Does tiger butter need to be refrigerated?

No, it doesn’t need to be refrigerated, but you can refrigerate it if you prefer it cold! Store it in an airtight container or ziplock bag for up to 2 weeks.

Can tiger butter be frozen?

Yes. Use aluminum foil to wrap the tiger butter in small bundles. Then cover each bundle with plastic wrap and place inside a freezer ziplock bag. Tiger butter will keep in the freezer for up to months. To thaw, place the entire bag or individual bundles in the fridge overnight. Once thawed, unwrap the bundles.

  1. Darn, I thought I was done with Christmas treats until I saw Tiger Butter!  Back to the kitchen!

  2. Is there a way to make this Slightly Softer than bark?I’m not 1 for the hardness.

  3. How long in advance can you make these? Do they freeze?

    • Hi Robyn! You can definitely make the tiger butter a month or so head of time and freeze in the freezer.

      Use aluminum foil to wrap the tiger butter in small bundles. Then cover each bundle with plastic wrap and place inside a freezer ziplock bag. Tiger butter will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months. To thaw, place the entire bag or individual bundles in the fridge overnight. Once thawed, unwrap the bundles.

  4. Should they be stored in the airtight container in the refrigerator or can they be stored in the airtight container outside of the refrigerator?

  5. I think this is considered gluten free, am I correct?..I’m definitely looking for an option to include in my cookie exchange offering. Thank you Beth. XO hillcmm

    • Hi Michelle! YEP!! It’s gluten free. As long as you double check the ingredients you’re using just to be sure!

  6. Also.. is canola in place of vegetable oil workable?

  7. Looks delicious! The photo looks like the peanut butter and white almond bark are separate and not mixed together. Did I read the recipe wrong? Thank you!!

  8. This was a HUGE hit at our Christmas family gathering. Super easy to make….will definitely be a repeat recipe. 

  9. What is the purpose of the oil?
