Peanut butter and milk chocolate, a classic duo. A favorite combo of mine, to be sure. Of course, you could combine a great many things with peanut butter and I’d be pleased as punch. Better still than the traditional PB and milk chocolate pairing is PB plus milk chocolate PLUS white chocolate.

Now we’re *really* cookin’. The only way this could possibly get any better is if we also add dark chocolate. I know, that would be madness. Which is why we must do it.

I have a large party-size bag of mini REESE’S cups burning a hole in my pantry. It’s a bag of assorted cups, so it contains milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate REESE’S. #heavendoesexist. I spotted it at Walmart over the weekend and I stopped in my tracks. I could not leave the store without it.

I LOVE tiger butter candy and thought it would be delicious and marvelous to chop up the assorted cups and sprinkle them on top of traditional tiger butter. Tiger butter is a layer of melted white chocolate mixed with creamy peanut butter, and then swirled with milk chocolate. It’s fantastic on its own, but it’s phenomenal with a sprinkling of chopped REESE’S. The result looks soooo pretty and swirly, and tastes divine.

It is truly the ultimate in combining chocolate and peanut butter: ALL kinds of chocolate, LOTS of peanut butter. I can’t think of another way to add more chocolate or peanut butter to this candy or you know I would. Therefore, it is perfect and complete.

Best of all, you can have this made and ready-to-demolish in about 15 minutes. Okay, that is not even close to being the ‘best of all’ to this recipe, but quick preparation is always a bonus. Also, you don’t need an oven or stove top. Your microwave will get the job done. You barely even need measuring cups! It really is super simple and fast to make.

This candy is great for a party because it’s a crowd-pleaser that everyone loves, and that will also actually feed a crowd. For example, let’s say your S.O. forgets to tell you that he invited people over to watch basketball (because that’s what March is alllllll about in the sports world), this is what you make. Impromptu gatherings at the house for sporting events is a common occurrence for me. This month, it’s been all about the big basketball tournament! Thankfully, this tiger butter candy has been my ace in the hole!

      Omg, it’s so good! And it keeps staring at me from the kitchen counter. I want to devour it all, but I’m trying to control myself. Lol! Thanks, Gayle!

      Lol!!! Yay! I’m so glad I got you on board with something that has white chocolate in it. Haha! I know how you feel about it! Tiger butter basically tastes like peanut butter bark with chocolate swirls. In other words, it ROCKS!! :)

    I had never heard of tiger butter before. But the fact that there is peanut butter in it is a major score for me! And then you added reeses peanut butter cups on top of it all? I think it makes it even more beautiful! We’d love to have you over at #FoodieFriDIY if you have the time!
