Some things just go together. Salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, Rachel and Ross. They just do. Nobody questions it. These dynamic duos belong together. They were made for each other.
For me, I have a few flavor duos that have never done me wrong.
- Banana and peanut butter
- Peanut butter and chocolate
- Chocolate and banana
I was pondering the deliciousness of these flavor combinations and thought to myself, “Brittney, why not combine all of these flavors?” These peanut butter chocolate tarts were the result of that thinking. The perfect combination of silky chocolate, crunchy peanut butter cookies, and sweet banana. These make the perfect sweet treat for any occasion.
You could easily use this recipe to make a pie instead of individual tarts, but I just enjoy how cute the mini treats are. It is totally up to your personal preference though!
PEANUT BUTTER BANANA CHOCOLATE TARTS
Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Tarts
- 25 peanut butter cookies I used Nutter Butters
- 5 tablespoons vegan butter
- 1/3 cup non-dairy milk I prefer soy simply because of how creamy it is
- 1 1/2 cups vegan dark chocolate chips
- 2 bananas sliced
- Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the 5 tablespoons of vegan butter.
- Using either a food processor or a rolling pin, finely crush the peanut butter cookies. If using a food processor, scrape the sides to make sure that all of the cookies are crushed.
- Add the melted butter and stir.
- Spread the crust on the bottom of your pie or tart tins.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, heat your non-dairy milk until hot but not boiling (approximately 30-45 seconds on high).
- Submerge the chocolate chunks and let set for two minutes or so until melted and stir.
- Place the chocolate milk mixture in your tin(s). If desired, you may save some to drizzle on the finished product.
- Arrange your sliced bananas however you desire on top of the chocolate mixture.
- If you choose, you can add chocolate drizzle and/or crushed peanut butter cookies at this point.
- Allow the pie/tarts to set in the fridge for at least an hour or until hardened.
