Snickers Bar Mini Tarts are the ultimate dessert for lovers of Snickers candy bars!
You simply can’t go wrong with a dessert that incorporates your favorite candy bars- especially those you consumed often (without worries of weight gain) when you were much younger but now rarely indulge (because of worries of weight gain). When’s the last time you ate a regular-sized Snicker’s Bar? Really. It’s a rare occasion around our house because of the indulgence, but eating one in a Snickers Bar Mini Tart seems more acceptable for sure!
These hand-held mini tarts are made of pie crust with a sweet peanut butter- Snickers bar cheesecake filling, they’re topped with chocolate ganache and they’re garnished with a piece of Snickers candy bar. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
For easy baking here you’ll use store-bought pie crusts. You’ll roll them out slightly and then cut out rounds of pie dough using a 3-inch round cutter. Then you’ll wiggle those pie dough rounds into 24 cavities of a mini muffin pan. Then you’ll bake the mini pie crusts.
Next, you’ll chop up your Snickers candy bars and place a piece of candy bar into each baked pie crust.
Then you’ll make the peanut butter cheesecake filling. The filling is spooned on top of each little piece of Snickers bar to create a mini peanut butter cheesecake tart. At this point, the tarts are baked.
After letting the tarts cool, you’ll add an easy chocolate ganache to the tops of the tarts. And finally, you’ll add a piece of Snickers candy bar to garnish the tarts. And there you have your Snickers Bar Mini Tarts!
See that oozing puddle of chocolate ganache on top??? That sits afloat a filling of peanut butter cheesecake (with a chunk of snickers sneakily hidden inside too!) This is a quick and easy dessert. The refrigerated pie crusts are used as the base. I don’t see any reason at all to use your best homemade crust since the flavor isn’t focused on the crust in this recipe. But have-at-it if you wish to do it all from scratch.
I do suggest that you give this recipe a shot. They’re tasty little bite-sized (decadent) treats. Enjoy!
