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!

    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?!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Katy @ Her Cup of Joy

    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 !!!!

  6. 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!
