Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Tarts

Method

1
To make the crust: Preheat oven to 350°. Grease four 4.75-inch round tart pans with removable bottoms.
2
Combine the shortbread crumbs and butter until thoroughly combined. Divide the crust mixture among prepared pans. Press the crust into the bottom and up the sides of each pan.
3
Set pans on a baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until the crusts are lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
4
To make the pudding: Place sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt in a heavy saucepan. Stir to combine.
5
Place saucepan on the stovetop over medium heat. Add about 1/2 cup of milk. Whisk to combine with sugar mixture.
6
Gradually add remaining milk and continue cooking, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to boil. Continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes until mixture has thickened.
7
Remove pan from heat. Add chocolate, butter, and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Stir in peanut butter.
8
Divide the pudding among the baked crusts. You'll use about 1/2 cup of pudding in each tart. Cover with plastic wrap, placing the wrap directly onto the surface of the pudding.
9
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
10
If desired, top each tart with sweetened whipped cream, nuts, and chocolate before serving.
