Tiger Butter

1 bag of white chocolate

1 bag of dark chocolate (60% coco)

3/4 cup peanut butter

Melt the dark chocolate and spread on waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Next, melt the white chocolate and peanut butter together and spread on top of the dark chocolate. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or place in freezer for 20. You can cut with a knife or break with your hands.

I got this recipe from a fellow knottie. It is sooooo simple. I think next time I will use milk chocolate as I prefer that. I will also probably do it in a smaller pan to avoid the spreading situation I created for myself.

No, the mother of one of my best friends isn't nuts, but this is her recipe for these awesome nuts.

l pound can of mixed nuts
1 Egg
1 1/2 tsp. water
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix 1 egg with 1 1/2 tsp. water then add the nuts-mix all together.
Then mix 1 cup suger with a 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and add that to the nut mixture.
Spread mixture on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Take off paper immediately when cool and break into pieces.

It is just awesome. I'm definately considering using this in our OOT gift bags for the wedding!!!
