Why You Must Make

  • If you love the classic pairing of peanut butter and chocolate, this Tiger Bark is for you!
  • It takes only minutes to prepare and is ready to eat as soon as it solidifies.
  • Using a knife or offset spatula to cut through the chocolate while the layers are still soft makes a beautiful pattern across the surface.

Ingredient Notes

  • Kitchen Staples – Vegetable Oil 
  • White Chocolate – Chopped for easier melting, I used Ghirardelli bars.
  • Peanut Butter – Creamy. I used Jif.
  • Semi-sweet Chocolate – Chopped for easier melting, I used Ghirardelli bars.

How to Marbleize Tiger Bark

I don’t go all crazy when I marbleize candies or toppings. Here is the simple technique I use:

  1. Spread the peanut butter layer across a foil-lined half-baking sheet.
  2. Next, pour parallel strips of the chocolate from one long side to the other.
  3. From there, I  took the tip of a table knife and pulled the chocolate from one short side to the other. Voila, a lovely, elegant pattern.

Recipe Tips

  • Use creamy not crunchy peanut butter for smooth bark. 
  • Line your pan with nonstick foil for easy cleanup.
  • To melt your chocolate, chop and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for short increments, stopping to stir before restarting the microwave.
  • Use a Ziploc bag with a corner snipped to pipe the chocolate stripes over the peanut butter layer. You could use a piping bag, but for those that don’t have one on hand, this option is easy and the bag can be tossed when you’re finished.
  • Make sure to swirl the layers before they cool.
  • Store your bark in the refrigerator. It will be easier to cut as it’s firmer when chilled.

Last Minute Treat!

On the morning of our neighborhood cookie exchange, I whipped up a batch of tiger bark in addition to the Hot Cocoa Cookies I  had baked earlier. It took mere minutes to make, but it wasn’t perfectly set before I cut it. Nevertheless, my family and friends loved every bite of this bark recipe! It’s a simple way to get your chocolate peanut butter fix.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Chocolate Bark?

It’s a thin layer of chocolate with nuts, candies, dried fruit, or other add-ins.

Why Is It Called Bark?

According to Good Housekeeping magazine, the pieces of candy resemble the “craggy surfaces” of tree bark.

How Can You Package Chocolate Bark for Gifts?

Bark makes excellent hostess or holiday gifts. I like to place it in cellophane bags, then tie with some festive ribbons and add a small gift tag. You can also find small Chinese food take-out boxes at the Container Store.

How Do You Store Chocolate Bark?

Keep it in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for 2-3 weeks. You can also freeze it, but note that condensation may develop as it defrosts and this could mar the chocolate. So you may not want to freeze it if you’re giving it as gifts.

Prep Time 10 minutes

Yield 24

A super quick and easy peanut butter and chocolate confection!


  • 1 pound white chocolate, chopped (I used Ghirarelli bars)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  1. Line a half-sheet pan with non-stick foil. Set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate, stopping and stirring at 30-second intervals until smooth.
  3. Stir peanut butter into the white chocolate until well combined. With an offset spatula, spread onto the prepared sheet pan into about a 9 x 13-inch rectangle.
  4. Add semi-sweet chocolate and oil to a microwave-safe bowl and melt as directed above.
  5. Pour stripes of chocolate over the peanut butter layer, from one long end to the other.  You can go back and even up these stripes if you have leftover chocolate.
  6. Then drag the point of a butter knife or the side of an offset spatula from one short side to the other (perpendicular to your stripes) to marbleize.
  7. Let the bark cool and solidify. Putting it in the refrigerator will speed up the process.
  8. Cut or break into serving-sized pieces. Store in the refrigerator.


Work quickly so the peanut butter layer does not set until after you add the chocolate and marbleize.
