Creamy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Tart

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Kraft.

Creating recipes with Philadelphia Cream Cheese is one of my favorite things to do. Sweet, savory and everything in between. How fun is that? Today I have developed a simple tart that you’ll have on the table in no time at all. Cream cheese, peanut butter, brown sugar and chocolate chips are your filling that is inside a gorgeous sweet graham cracker crust. Sometimes simple is best in my book.

The Real Women of Philadelphia are searching for your best recipes using Philadelphia Cream Cheese and this week is all about desserts. Get your thinking caps on and create something that will knock those judges socks off 🙂

While your there, be sure to check out what recipes are being submitted by others. You can watch videos and check out the forum that will give you all the tips you need.

    Looks delicious! So are the chocolate chips just on top for garnish or are they in the filling as well?

    umm…yumm. I will def. have to try this one. My husband LOVES PB and chocolate. I’m guessing a store bought crust would work as well, right?

    This looks so good! I don’t see the chocolate chips listed in the recipe though. Are they mixed into the peanut butter filling or just on top? Thanks!

    I printed the recipe and was making this. Fixing to put it in the frig and I thought, “Where are the chocolate chips?” Do we just sprinkle the top or mix some in with the filling? Or is that to taste – a matter of one’s love of chocolate?

    Georgia says:

    Nevermind, it’s so thin, just sprinling the top is enough. For those who want to just use graham cracker crumbs, 9 crackers measured out to 1 cup.
