Peanut Butter Chocolate Tart Recipe

Publisher Photo
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
