STEP 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
STEP 2
In a food processor, pulse together Nilla Wafers (5 ounce), Unsalted Peanuts (1/2 cup), and Granulated Sugar (1 tablespoon) until you have a course uniform crumb.
STEP 3
Drizzle in Unsalted Butter (6 tablespoon) and pulse a few times to combine.
STEP 4
Using 8, 4" mini tart pans with removable bottoms, add 1/4 cup of crumb mixture to tart pan and evenly spread over the bottom and up the sides, pressing lightly to compact. Place prepared tart shells on a large baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Heat Heavy Cream (3 ounce) in a small sauce pan or microwave until hot. Pour over Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate (3 ounce) allow to sit for 1-2 minutes to melt.
STEP 7
Add Sweetened Condensed Milk (2 tablespoon) and whisk until smooth.
STEP 8
Scoop 1 tablespoon of ganache into cooled tart shells and spread out evenly over the bottom. Reserve remaining ganache for drizzling. Refrigerate tart shells for 15-20 minutes to firm up ganache.

Beat Cream Cheese (3/4 cup) and Peanut Butter (1/2 cup) together until light and fluffy.
