a href="http://awhiskandaspoon.com/"steph/a, a href="http://spikebakes.tumblr.com/"spike/a, a href="http://www.goodeatsblog.com/"jaime/a and a href="http://cookbookhabit.blogspot.com/"jessica/a.  i know i was raring to go-how could you not be ready for chocolate?  since this was a chocolate challenge, i decided to make them for valentines day with my husband and one of our daughters.   both of them are fans of chocolate, especially dark chocolate but being a pastry chef, i decided to customize my tart for them.  what that means is rather than dark and white chocolate chunks and chopped biscotti being added to the tart, i opted to use dark chocolate, peanut butter cups and peanut brittle.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both;
