Who doesn’t love a yummy tart? Especially when it’s a no-bake recipe? The only thing you will need to worry about is having the will power to only eat one slice. Be strong, Mama, and show your preschooler how to have self control. There are quite a few recipes for a no-bake tart, and this peanut butter tart, adapted from a recipe by Martha Stewart herself, is fantastic because it has less sugar than a typical fruit tart and the peanut butter provides some protein. You don’t have to feel guilty about this one, Mom. So grab your kiddo and whip it up.
This job will be super fun for your kiddo. Put 12 graham crackers in a freezer bag and hand it over to your kiddos. Set them at the table and give them a rolling pin to crush the crackers into crumbs. Have them roll and pound till there are no large clumps left. Pour them into a large bowl and stir in 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Dump the graham cracker and butter mixture into a 9-inch tart shell with a removable bottom to form the crust. Press the crust into the shell until it is completely covered. Place it in the freezer to harden.
For the delicious tart filling, combine one cup peanut butter, 6 ounces of softened cream cheese and 1/3 cup plus two tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl. Mix with an electric mixer or whip with a whisk until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl, whip 3/4 cup heavy cream until it is light and fluffy. Have your kiddo slowly add the whipped cream to the peanut butter mixture, folding it in until combined.
Pull it Together
Grab your crust from the freezer and add the peanut butter filling, being sure to cover the whole thing evenly. Whip up some fresh whip cream, too. Just place one cup of heaving whipping cream in a bowl and whisk until light and fluffy. Layer it on top of the tart and refrigerate for at least two hours so it sets up.
Add crushed salted nuts to the top for a crunchy texture or drizzle some caramel or chocolate on top. Just about any thing sweet or salty will work well with this spectacular no-bake tart. Serve up a slice alongside a glass of milk or hot cocoa and enjoy!
