Mocha Mousse Tarts with Peanut Butter Cup Crumbles
A few weeks ago I wrote about how I am experiencing a quarter century taste bud crisis, and I think it’s because I am turing 25 next month.
The crisis is that I am starting to like citrus flavors over chocolate, and I’ve always been a chocolate girl.
Well, that whole citrus craving must have been a phase because I am back to craving chocolate. And mocha. And peanut butter cups. And mini tarts.
These mocha mousse tarts with peanut butter cup crumbles are like personal sized pies. Which is great for those of us who find ourselves eating or wanting to eat an entire regular sized pie.
And the best part about these tartlets? A mini dessert means you don’t have to share!
I know peanut butter cups can be dangerous. You buy a bag from the store, it mysteriously opens while you’re driving home, and before you know it half the bag is gone before you even get to use the peanut butter cups as you planned.
So I am going to share my secret tip with you. After you use the peanut butter cups for a recipe, store the rest of them inside a ziploc bag in the freezer.
You can hide them behind the peas if you want. But if they are out of sight, I know I am less likely to snack on them. Now you don’t have to go out and buy peanut butter cups each time a recipe calls for a few, because you’ll have some in your freezer!
There are two main parts to this recipe. The tart shells and the mocha mousse.
The tart shells can be made in advance and the mocha mousse should be prepared right before serving.
These mocha mousse tarts are so delicious and would be something unique to bring to your next party.
