Cook time: 25 minutes
For the base
150g butter (or dairy free alternative)
230g plain flour
45g Food Thoughts cacao powder
40g caster sugar
45ml ice cold water
For bottom filling layer
4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
For top filling layer
150g smooth peanut butter
240ml single cream (or dairy free alternative) (at room temperature)
130g Food Thoughts dark chocolate chips
50g Food Thoughts dark chocolate chips
Handful of crushed peanuts
Method: chocolate and peanut butter tart
- Begin by preheating the oven to 180c and greasing a tart tin.
- In a blender add the butter, flour, cacao powder and caster sugar. Blend for a few seconds until a crumb like mixture forms.
- Next add the cold water and blend until the mixture comes together into a ball of dough in the blender. Empty it into the tart tin and flatten into the base and up the sides until the tin is completely covered.
- Use a fork to make a few holes in the base and then place the tin into the oven for 14 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes before spreading the peanut butter over the bottom of the base.
- For the top filling layer melt the dark chocolate chips in 30 seconds increments until melted and then combine with the room temperature cream and peanut butter until smooth. Pour on top of the peanut butter layer.
- Place the tart into the fridge to set for a minimum of 1 hour. Overnight is fine too.
- Melt the 50g dark chocolate chips to decorate and finish by adding some crushed peanuts.
