Place chocolate chips in the bowl and place in the microwave. Start with heating the chocolate chips for 1 minute. Remove the bowl and stir.

Then continue do this process in intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth. You may even need to reduce the microwave setting to 30 seconds when close to the chocolate is melting.

How to get a nice Swirl throughout the Fudge?

To make the beautiful chocolate swirls throughout the fudge, you can use a sharp knife or toothpick. Once the chocolate has been added to the vanilla peanut butter mixture, then take you knife and move it around the pan. ‘

Don’t over mix it as you want to create that swirl effect.

How long can you keep Fudge:

This Tiger Butter Fudge doesn’t last long in my house. But fudge can last up to 2 months if stored properly. We like to store in an air tight container and place in the refrigerator to keep cool.

Keep fudge cool, helps it to last longer.

Can you Freeze Homemade Fudge?

Yes, homemade fudge can be placed in the freezer if stored properly. Frozen fudge will last about 3 months in the freezer. This is a great option if you would like to begin your holiday baking.

  • Keep fudge free from any air or moisture.
  • Wrap fudge in wax paper completely.
  • Then wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap to ensure no freezer burns or no air gets in.
  • Store in the back of the freezer so that it stays the same temperature while in the freezer.
  • When you are ready to serve, remove from freeze and let thaw on the counter for about 2 hours. Serve at room temperature if you prefer.
