Tips on Making Tiger Butter Fudge
Here are the best tips on how to perfect making this tiger butter fudge recipe at home:
- Use good chocolate. We recommend using couverture chocolate as its high-fat content gives better flavor. You can choose between dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or semi-sweet chocolate. Chocolate morsels, callets, or bars? Use whichever is the best chocolate for you.
- You can pick between chunky or creamy peanut butter, but the latter will help you achieve smoother swirls. You can also use almond butter to make yummy almond bark fudge.
- You can melt the chocolate in a glass bowl using either a double boiler or a microwave. Make sure that no water will touch the chocolate because any moisture will ruin its texture. Chocolate easily burns, so it’s best to melt it slowly and at a low temperature.
- Add other delicious ingredients to the tiger bark. You can sprinkle some sliced almonds, dried fruit, and even edible gold dust or gold leaves to make it more festive!
