"I've been making this delicious candy for years! I always spread my tiger butter into a waxed paper lined 15x10-inch pan, then cut the chilled candy into squares. This recipe is definitely a family favorite!"

"I make different candy trays every Christmas and give them to my family. Each year they look forward to homemade candy. Last year I ran across this recipe and added it to my tray. It was very good and I received many compliments. When I first make a recipe, I do not make any changes. I will make it again this Christmas, and the only change I will make is to "make more"."

"I made this for the first time today. I was very very pleased. It is so good! The peanut butter flavor shines! I used Nestle's white chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips and store brand peanut butter because that's all I had...and it was still good! Thank you very much again!"

"This recipe is so easy! I didn't use the cream as this is a recipe my ex-mother-in-law used to make. Since I couldn't find it, I looked on TOH where I know i can find just about anything!~"
