You would assume that, seeing as how this is the first Try It Tuesday of the year that you are about to read an uber-healthy post about something delicious and nutritious, sure to help you stay on track with your resolutions, right?
HA! NOT TODAY!
Today I’m going to share one of my favorite sweet treats (that I actually learned from my sister) and I took to my family’s New Year’s Eve get together! Its called Tiger Butter and its amazing!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 bag vanilla chips (11 oz)
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
First, line a 9×13 glass pan with parchment paper or foil. I had to use tape to get the parchment paper to stay in place (which was super annoying) but I thought it would work better than foil.
Pour the semi-sweet chocolate chips into a small, glass bowl. Microwave for about a minute and stir gently until smooth. You may need to add a few extra seconds if it didn’t melt all the way. Then, set it aside.
Next, pour the vanilla chips into a medium-sized glass bowl. Microwave for about a minute and a half. Stir gently until smooth. Add the peanut butter and stir until the mixtures is well combined and there are no lumps.
Pour the vanilla-peanut butter mixture into the lined pan. It probably won’t reach the edges of the pan–don’t panic! Its totally fine. Once the mixture has settled, pour in the melted semi-sweet chocolate in lines.
After that, take a knife and run it the opposite direction of the chocolate lines you created to achieve a swirl pattern. Swipe your knife through the mixture however many times you want until you achieve the look you prefer!
Let it cool either on the countertop or in the fridge. When its cooled and firm, cut it into small squares and store in an airtight container
You guys, I could LEGIT eat this whole recipe if I did not exercise EXTREME self-control. Like, for reals. Its just sooooo good! Definitely “Cheat Day”-worthy!
