This does look good. But, I just learned that I have diabetes. Any ideas about candies that I can eat?

Took it to a party on Memorial Day and it was a huge hit!  I had read your previous post about Tiger Butter and was curious.  Thanks for making us aware of it, yummmmmm.

It's SUCH a fast and easy candy  ..... and it's one of the best I've ever made.  
Of course that great Vanilla Macadamia Nut Fudge is still my favorite.

OK, you got me I will have to make this.  You have mentioned this several times before.  So I will have to try it.  That and the Macadamia Nut Fudge.  And I have a recipe that will use a can of coconut milk so I can make both at the same time and not have to worry about the leftover coconut milk.

wellllllllllllllllllllllllll ..... sorry Nikki, but the Tiger Butter doesn't use coconut milk.    Last time I made the Macadamia Fudge I had the half can of coconut milk left.   Like I said on here, I used it to make the fudge recipe again but instead of macadamias, I used lots and lots of coconut, chopped dried apricots and coconut.  It was so thick I could spoon it out into little piles on wax paper.
I did not like it very much and said I wasn't going to make it again.   But it sure improved with age .... It just got better and better.

Nellie -- the white chips are melted with peanut butter and that's what they taste like ....... There's very little of that distinctive white chip taste.   It's just a light, smooth,  peanut butter taste.

Sorry...I was talking about both of the recipes that you have been making a lot.  
I will check out the Tiger Butter, I so love peanut butter. 
The Macadamia Fudge is the one that uses the coconut milk correct?  Well I found a recipe on The Chew for a rice that uses coconut milk.  I tried it once and it was a big hit so that is what I would make with the bit of coconut milk that is left after making the fudge.

Nikki -- please give  the recipe for rice w/coconut milk.   I use that stuff but not enough to use it ALL - and it's too expensive to waste.

This is for the full meal. 
Chicken with Marmalade glaze. 
1 Cup marmalade
1 Piece of ginger, grated (about 1 inch long)
3 Tb olive oil
1 1/2 Cup Orange Juice, fresh or from a bottle, if you use frozen re constitute first
1 Cup white wine or water
1/4 Cup brown sugar.
4 Chicken breasts, or use thighs about 6 or 8 would do it.
This makes a lot of sauce so make extra chicken for later.
Combine marmalade, ginger, OJ, and brown sugar. 
In a pan heat olive oil and brown chicken. Turn skin side up. 
Pour glaze over chicken, add water so liquid comes up the side of the chicken but does not cover skin. 
Cook about 40 minutes, I did this in the oven at 325. Stove top would be fine as well. 

Coconut Rice. (Again full portion could be cut in half.)
2 Cups rice
2 1/2 Cups water
1 Can, 13.5 ounces coconut milk
1/2 Cup toasted coconut
1/2 Cup raisins
3 Scallions sliced
Combine rice, water and coconut milk in a pan. 
Bring to a boil then reduce and cook until rice is done, about 20 -25  minutes. 
Add raisins and toasted coconut, stir to combine. 
Top with green onions.

Ok Nancy you got me.  Shamed me, twisted my arm, coerced me, goaded me into making the Tiger Butter. 
I did not have the white chips so I used semi sweet.  This stuff is amazing!!!!! Have I mentioned that I love... let me re phrase that...have I mentioned that I
LOVE peanut butter and chocolate????
Well I can't imagine this will be any better made with the white chips!  I am just sorry I did not have any more of the Dark Chips to top this with. 
As I mentioned in my review I now need to change the name I came up with Zebra Butter or Elephant Butter..what do you think? 
By the way I cut the recipe in half and made it in a loaf pan, perfect size for us.  My husband is not a chocolate lover (more for me!) and I do not need a 13X9 pan full of this in the house. 

I guess the only drawback if you want to call it that is there is not much of a color difference between the layers but it still tastes great.  This would be great with some dried cranberries or raisins, peanuts sort of like a Chunky bar but even better because of the peanut butter.

Gee Whiz, Nikki --- I'm SO SORRY is twisted your arm and forced you into slaving over the microwave.
And I'm tickled pink that you tried the (slightly twisted) recipe and loved it too.
It's SUCH a good recipe, so fast, so easy and so very delicious.
And you've inspired me to try some variations.

I worked much harder than you think!
I used a double boiler not the microwave.  For some reason I like the control I have when melting chocolate in a bowl over hot water. 
I will repeat.... The Chocolate Peanut Butter is great! The loaf pan came out perfect nice chunks, about 1 1/2 inches square.  Now I can't wait to try a mix of raisins and nuts. Or craisins and nuts. This stuff may be my downfall. 
Can I send the bill to join Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig or any of the rest of them to you?

Nikki -- Not using the microwave?   Yikes.  
And, no, I will not help you join any weight  program.
Why don't you talk to Carol ...... she's an official in TOPS

I do thank you for all the great sounding variations.
Once when I was just making half the recipe I used an 8x8 square pan - worked great.

Nikki, thanks for the chicken recipe.  I've just printed it off.  Sounds wonderful.  I'm always trying to think of something to do with chicken.
