Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart

So the last few days, my mom has been visiting. The hubs has been out of town, so we’ve been enjoying some girl time.

Honestly, she’s been spoiling me a bit. First of all, she brought crab legs for dinner one night and we had sushi last night. Two of my favorite things. #spoiled

And as usual, she’s been cleaning my house. In fact, she claims that’s the real reason she’s here. I won’t even tell you all that she’s done, but I will tell you that everything she cleans, she cleans better than me. It’s a gift. For both of us.

When she’s here cleaning, we always laugh over how funny it is that we can be so different when it comes to cleaning and baking. I much prefer baking and making the mess and she feels super satisfied when it’s clean. We’ve decided that makes us the perfect pair. 🙂

And in return for her cleaning, I’m doing something for her that she doesn’t care for – baking.

She is not a baker. She is a cook. Believe it or not, I actually grew up cooking with her. I have always loved desserts, but making them is something that I began doing as an adult. I actually used to cook – a lot.

So this weekend, my parents are meeting up with some friends and she’s been asked to bring dessert. Since she is not into making dessert (like, at all) she was a little bewildered at what to bring.

Then my dad pointed out she’d be here with me, so she could just bring her cake carrier (that is reserved for my desserts) and bring stuff home. So in exchange for her general awesomeness and cleaning skills, I am making her desserts.

The craziest part? She thinks it’s a fair trade.

Don’t tell her, but I totally have the better end of the deal. 😉

This isn’t one of the deserts I made her, though I did make her another kind of tart, in addition to some other things.

This Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart is seriously amazing. It was even more delicious than I thought it’d be. You could kind of think of it like a big Reese’s cup, but maybe better with the addition of an Oreo crust.

How to Make a Reese’s Chocolate Tart

You’ll want to have a 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom. The removable bottoms are quite handy.

Press the Oreo crust into the pan, then make the peanut butter ganache. To do that, just put your peanut butter chips and whipping cream in a heat proof bowl in the microwave and heat them until the cream boils. Whisk it until smooth, then pour in the crust and spread evenly.

You’ll refrigerate it until it’s firm enough that when you add the chocolate ganache on top, they remain separate layers. You could mix them, if you wanted, and not have to worry about the refrigeration time at this point, but I liked them as separate layers.

Once it’s firm enough, repeat the ganache making process with the chocolate chips. Top it with Reese’s and refrigerate until firm.

So. Darn. Easy. And you wouldn’t believe the rave reviews I got. It might just be the most bang I’ve ever gotten for my dessert-making-bucks. Easy and a massive hit! Cha-ching!

Description

This Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart is so delicious! It’s such an easy no-bake dessert recipe that’s super velvety thanks to the rich chocolate ganache!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups oreo crumbs
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted

1. Add melted butter to cookie crumbs and mix until combined.
2. Press cookie mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9 inch tart pan, with removable bottom, then set aside.
3. Put peanut butter chips into a microwave safe bowl. I used a glass measuring cup.

5. Microwave mixture until cream begins to boil, about 1-2 minutes.
6. Remove from microwave and whisk until smooth.
7. Pour peanut butter ganache into crust and spread into an even layer. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes, or until fairly firm.
8. Put chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl.

10. Microwave mixture until cream begins to boil, about 1-2 minutes.
11. Remove from microwave and whisk until smooth.
12. Pour chocolate ganache over peanut butter ganache and spread into an even layer.
13. Top with quartered mini Reese’s.

    If I make the tart a day before serving and keep it refrigerated, when do remove it from the tart pan?

    1. Lindsay

      You’ll want to remove it only after the filling has firmed up. You can do so right before serving, or sooner if it’s firm.

    1. Lindsay

      That should be fine, though they’d be pretty firm. You can either thaw them before eating or try adding some corn syrup to keep them softer when frozen.

  2. Sophie

    Do you put the entire Oreo in the food processor to achieve the Oreo crumbs? Or do you just use the cookie part (not the cream part) of the Oreo?

  3. Scott Williamss

    The peanut butter sandwiches are fantastic and look great. I have tried some like these before and they came out great. What kind of camera did you use for the photographs?

  4. Alex @ smartkitchenguide

    This was great , I tryed it this weekend , it worked great . It was pretty much refressing and completely tasteful and yeah thanks for the recipe

  5. Kristin

    This is a great, easy recipe! The recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of crumbs, and I felt the crumbs were too greasy, so I ground up some more until it looked moist, but not greasy. I think I used a total of 20 whole Oreos. I also baked it in the oven at 350 for 12 minutes. Sometimes, these crusts that aren’t baked can be rather crumbly, and I didn’t want that to happen, since I was serving this to guests. Maybe I’ll try it sometime without baking it. This tart is super easy, but really rich and yummy. AND, it’s one my picky eaters can’t complain about. My tart pan was already in use, so I decided to use a regular pie pan, and I just made a shallower crust, and didn’t press the crumbs up the sides so high, and that worked well for me. This is really yummy, thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Hi. This looks divine! Is it alright to use peanut butter instead of the chips? If so should I mix it with hot cream?

    1. Lindsay

      You know, I hadn’t thought about just putting peanut butter in there but it would probably be fine. A lot like a peanut butter cup. You could add a little cream and powdered sugar to sweeten it up a bit if you wanted.

    1. Lindsay

      I haven’t tried it, but think it might be fine. If you defrost it later, I’d probably recommend putting it in the fridge to defrost.

      1. Carrie Roush

        Thank you!! I have made 20 of these within the last 2 weeks. I have 11 in my refrigerator right now for a tailgate party tomorrow. Everyone so far has loved them!! So simple and easy to make.

  7. Kellie

    Looks scrumptious. But….I’d be a little afraid to microwave the choc chips and cream for that long. I would go maybe 20 seconds at a time and stir/whisk in between.

    1. Lindsay

      You could certainly do it that way. I also often microwave the heavy cream until boiling, then pour it over the chocolate/peanut butter chips and allow it to sit for a few minutes before whisking it until smooth. It all melts either way. 🙂

  8. Bruna

    Hi Lindsay!!! I am willing to bake your recipe but I live in Brazil. I am afraid we don’t have peanut butter chips here. Any idea of how I could replace the chips?? Hope you can help me. Thank you so much!!! Your recipes are lovely. 

  9. Stephanie

    Thank you SO much for this incredible recipe!  I made it last night for the first time for a party we were hosting (not always a good idea, trying something new for an event), but it was WILDLY popular!  I never got to taste it, but the reviews were outstanding!  I’ll definitely be making it again.  Thanks so much!  🙂

    This peanut butter and chocolate tart is the stuff of my dreams! I don’t really have a sweet tooth – although I love baking and making cakes, etc – but when it comes to the glorious combination of PB & choc. I’m sold. I need to eat this tart now. Will get ingredients with shopping, so will have to wait – sad face!! Thank you for posting beautiful pictures and a fab recipe. Sammie x

    I made this for my daughter’s 4th birthday party this past weekend. It was a HUGE hit. My only fail was that I have an 11-inch tart pan, so I just made a little more ganache to spread around 🙂 Very few slices were left.

  12. Shannon

    How many cups of peanut butter ganache does this recipe make? I was thinking that I might replace that with regular creamy peanut butter… do you think that would make a big difference? Thanks for the recipe 🙂 it is so much more simple than others that I’ve seen online. (sorry if this shows up more than once… I have a bad connection and had to push the post button a few times!)

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      It’s probably between 1/2 and 3/4 cup. It would change it up, but I think that’d b great too.

  13. Shannon

    This looks incredible! Definitely something I’m going to make soon. I just had one question – did you really use equal amounts of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips? The chocolate layer just looks so much thicker in the picture…

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      I think it might just be the way it looks in the picture, or maybe the way it got layered together. It is equal parts of peanut butter and chocolate chips.

  14. Doug (the kitchen professor)

    My wife made this yesterday. She told me she found the recipe here – THANK YOU.

    I have a new favorite dessert…at least for this week.

  15. Jessica @ Sweet Menu

    What a beautiful tart! I love no bake desserts too – so much more foolproof! Chocolate + peanut butter is a match made in heaven!

  16. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    Holy cow! Now all I can think about is this tart and how I need it in my life!!! That and how can I get someone to clean my house for treats…you definitely got the best part of that deal 🙂

  17. Julianne @ Beyond Frosting

    Your mom was so funny on the phone the other night! I’m glad you guys got to hang out this week. I’m sure your microwave is spotless now 🙂

  18. Stephanie @ Girl Versus Dough

    This tart is DANGEROUSLY easy. I think I’d eat at least half of it in one sitting! Now can your mom come over and clean my place, too, please? 😉

  19. Rebecca

    This looks AMAZING! Anything Reece’s goes for me! I make these cookie dough cupcakes( not my recipe) and everybody loves it! They make it sound like i invented the flavor, but i didn’t! The baker who made the recipe and changed it to perfection should really get the credit! I LOVE baking and I am 12 years old. My mom thinks I should start my own cake buissness, selling stuff to my friends. I want to have your permission to use your recipes for cupcakes and sell them.

  20. Katelyn @munchie pie

    This looks SO GOOD! Chocolate and peanut butter is my weakness. My mom doesn’t bake either so whenever she needs to bring dessert somewhere I make something for her 😉 Love our moms, right?!

  21. Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg

    We love peanut butter and chocolate in my house. If we can’t find any peanut butter or peanut butter cups…something is really wrong. Haha.

  22. Meg @ The Housewife in Training Files

    OMG my mouth is watering. I need this dessert in my life because like your sister…I am no baker! I am a cook through and through 🙂 All I did nail a skinny cupcake for two the other day and I jumped for joy! But this no bake Reese’s tart is totally calling my name!

  23. Katy @ Her Cup of Joy

    This tart looks fantastic! The slice you have up there needs to get in my belly now! 😉 I love following your blog and seeing all of the new ideas that you come up with! Always perfect and delicious 🙂

  24. Lynne

    Yum Yum and Yum. Thank you, was needing to do a dessert for Friday night, and with so many amazing options had no clue….and now this one is perfect !!!!

  25. Mir

    Whenever you do anything with PB cups, my jaw drops and doesn’t come back up for a few hours.
    I think that this for dessert along with your sushi might be the perfect dinner. Props to your mom for bringing the best food over. She can always count on you to do dessert!
