Do you have a favorite holiday cookie? Is it a nostalgic recipe you make with your mom every year? A crave-worthy, sinful sweet? Or maybe it’s the piece de resistance treat for your cookie plate. The recipe I’m sharing this year, Tiger Butter Bark checks all three boxes:

Tiger Butter Bark is variation on the bark I loved making way back when I worked at a chocolate shop in high school. It’s one of those confections that are truly hard to eat just one piece, and the bark’s graphic swirl design makes it a beautiful statement in the quintessential cookie plate.
