Peanuts are God's little gift to the legume family, with peanut butter being an extra added bonus. And what goes better with peanuts than chocolate? Let's pay homage to the wonderful combination of peanut butter and chocolate with a triple layer tart - a flaky, all-butter shortbread like crust filled with a layer of sweet peanut butter fudge, peanut-butter chocolate ganache, and chocolate ganache, sprinkled with ground peanuts.

First, you'll need to make the tart crust.

Let's make the ganache

This is relatively simple, very versatile, and lends to a lot of really impressive uses. You can use it to frost decadent cakes, as the filling for truffles, to top 飬airs and put in the middle of cookies, or just about any application where you want rich, chocolaty flavor.

The Valrhona bars are 3.5 ounces each, and the recipe called for 8 ounces of chocolate. So I scaled down the recipe a tad to accommodate the 7 ounces of chocolate I had because I didn't want to break open another bar for 1 measly ounce.
