Classic Peanut + Chocolate Southern Tartlets

If you find it hard to resist the classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter, this recipe is for you. The homemade Peanut Flour tart crust is a delicious gluten-free base for the creamy peanutty filling that sits inside. And when the whole thing is layered or drizzled (depending on your preference) with chocolate, it becomes reminiscent of a peanut butter cup. Try it in honor of National Peanut Month.
