"very simple to make candy, makes a good amount as well so great for gifts or holiday parties."

"OMG, these treats are to die for. I mixed the two chocolates together in a double boiler and melted until smooth, then I melted the peanutbutter in the microwave and lightly blended it into the chocolate mixture, leaving swirls of peanutbutter. Next I put about 1 Tbsp. into candy papers and put in the fridge to harden. It was a little extra work, but very pretty on a tray. I took them to work and everyone wanted the recipe. Thanks for sharing TOH!."

"I have a very similar recipe called "Tiger Butter". Melt 1 pound of white chocolate with 1 pound of smooth peanut butter over low heat. Pour into 9 x 13 pan. Melt 1 pound of semi-sweet chocolate morsels over low heat and pour over white chocolate and peanut butter. Swirl together with a knife. Chill and cut into pieces. It disappears at church dinners!"
