    The grand kids love this easy to make sweets. My grandsons had so much fun making this candy. We made several batches and they wrapped the candies in pretty bags, and gave them out to their moms.

    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 love this recipe but modify it by using creamy and omitting the cream...just as yummy!

    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!~
