"This creamy make-ahead dessert is perfect for company," remarks Julie Sterchi of Jackson, Missouri. Convenience foods—including instant pudding, frozen whipped topping, cookies and prepared crumb crust—make it a treat for the cook, too.
Here’s a true indulgence for the holiday season. The rich, buttery crust holds a triple-nut filling flavored with maple. When the tart has cooled, I drizzle on melted chocolate.—Rebekah Radewahn, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin
I've been submitted recipes for years to Taste of Home recipe contest, but never dreamed that I would win. I love peanut butter and add it to many of the desserts I make. This is one of my best and anyone who loves peanut butter cups will be in heaven when they take a bite of this rich, sensational tart. While it looks spectacular, it is very easy to put together.—Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York
My mother made this silky pie when I was a child. It was my father's favorite. The fluffy chocolate-almond filling is held in a thin chocolate shell. Be warned, it is so rich that you should only take a sliver.—Jamie Burkhart, Windsor, Missouri
We love the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter and this tart gives us the best of both. This is fun for the whole family to make. If you make it in a tart pan, it's an upscale dessert. If you make it in a pizza pan, it's a great dessert for a pizza meal! —Susan Marshall, Colorado Springs, Colorado
