Tiger Butter Fudge Tips

How do I store tiger butter fudge?

Like other fudge recipes, you can store this fudge in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge. Fudge at room temperature will last for about 1 to 2 weeks. In the fridge, fudge lasts a bit longer—typically up to 2 to 3 weeks.

What is the best chocolate to use?

We recommend using white and milk chocolate chips for this tiger butter fudge recipe. (We think these are the best chocolate chips you can buy!) If you have leftover chocolate chips to spare, use them up in this 5-ingredient fudge recipe or these other recipes that use up chocolate chips.

How do I get a nice swirl throughout my fudge?

To achieve a beautiful, clean swirl, use a sharp knife or a toothpick to cut through the melted chocolate. If you don't feel like fussing with a swirl, try out this Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge. Looking for more tips? Check out our fudge guide!
