The classic combination of peanut butter and milk chocolate in this no-bake dessert evokes a favorite candy, but its delicate texture will make your guests feel like sophisticated trick-or-treaters.

    This is a great dessert. Two recommendations: 1. It definitely is not setup in 2 hours. Let it sit over night. 2. Dark chocolate would be a good contrast to how sweet the peanut butter layer is. It's just barely too sweet with the milk chocolate.

      the tart came out perfectly . I made this for me and my bro and he is picky about the food , the only thing I had trouble with was refrigerating it for so long

    I made the recipe as written. Turned out perfectly. Cut into small triangle slices topped with whipped cream. So good and light.

    Could you double the ingredients and put it in a 10 inch round tart pan?

    Excellent! This was a crowd pleaser all around. Light and perfect for summer. I used half-and-half in the ganache as opposed to heavy cream and this yielded a great result. Add a dollop of Cool Whip light whipped cream and you're guaranteed smiles all around!

    I gotta tell you all, I bought one of these pans and I just love it. Can't believe all the different things you can use it for, especially all of the different squares we make.

    queen_hermione, I did mine in a round springform pan, because I could not find the rectangular one either, so it was more like a cheesecake or pie for me, and it worked just fine.

    Has anyone tried to make this in a different-sized pan? I have a 10-inch round tart pan, but not a rectangular one, and I really don't want to buy a new pan just for this recipe.

    Words can't even describe how delicious this is. I made this for my mother-in-law's birthday, as she is not a cake lover, and even people who hate peanut butter have tried this and loved it. My kids licked the mixing bowl clean!
