  • Summary

    What makes classic peanut butter filling in chocolate cups irresistible is the edge of salt against sweet. That and a texture that hovers between creamy and crumbly. To get more peanutty goodness—and a tastier homemade version of it—blitz up peanuts, sugar, and salt and stuff it into a huge tart pan lined with chocolate. It's as addictive as the original with a freshness from just-ground peanuts.

    Ingredients

    • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
    • 18 ounces milk, semisweet, and/or bittersweet chocolate (preferably 40–60% cacao), chopped
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut or other neutral vegetable oil
    • 1 pound unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts (about 3 1/2 cups; see Cooks' Note)
    • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons fine sea salt
    • A 10" fluted tart pan with removable bottom
