Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart

Do you ever inexplicably have a craving that must be fulfilled no matter what?  I had one the other day for chocolate and peanut butter that I knew wouldn’t be satisfied with a peanut butter cup.

No. It had to be bigger and better.  Preferably with Oreos involved somehow.

Therefore, we have this tart. Rich and decadent with an Oreo crust, peanut butter filling and topped with chocolate ganache and sea salt.  Sea salt bring everything together and makes it all a little brighter.

It’s also no bake and ridiculously easy, so if you’re in need of a chocolate peanut butter fix, you can be enjoying this tart ASAP.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup and 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus more for garnish

Steps

Melt 1/2 cup of butter and stir into Oreo crumbs, adding 1/4 tsp of sea salt, until you have a mixture similar to wet sand.  Press into the bottom and sides of a greased 8-9 inch tart pan and place in freezer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter with icing sugar, vanilla and the remaining butter and sea salt until smooth and fully combined. Evenly spread into the set tart crust (you may have excess, in which case you can save for another tart or melt over ice cream!). Place in the freezer until ready to use again.

Heat cream over medium heat in a saucepan until it slowly simmers. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir until smooth.

Pour the chocolate ganache over the set tart and smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle with sea salt and place in fridge for at least an hour.
