1 pound of white chocolate
1 pound semisweet chocolate

Line a jelly roll pan (10 inch by 15 inches) with parchment paper.

Pour this mixture into the lined jelly roll pan.

Pour the melted semi sweet chocolate over top, making a number of s-shapes. Using a knife, swirl this around to marble.

Refrigerate this mixture until it sets, then cut into pieces that are approximately one inch square.

This tiger butter candy makes a great gift when placed in a decorative tin or container.
