Chocolate Peanut Butter Halloween Tarts

I have always loved to bake,
but some days you just don't have the time
to make a complicated dessert.

Enter Chocolate Peanut Butter
Halloween Tarts....

These little pies really took no time at all to put together.

Here's the recipe from Taste of Home:

1 cup peanut butter chips
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 package (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 ¾ cups cold milk
1 package (6 count) individual graham cracker tart shells
Whipped topping
Optional:  Halloween candy, sprinkles, etc.

In the top of a double boiler over simmering water,
melt chips with oil, stirring until smooth.
(I used a Pyrex bowl on top of a pot of simmer water for my double boiler)
Remove top pan from water and cool for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk pudding and milk until thick.
Fold in peanut butter mixture.  Spoon into tart shells.
Chill for 15 minutes.
Top with dollop of whipped cream and decorate
as desired.

That was nice & simple...
and my husband & kids loved them!

Happy Halloween, friends!
