Peanut butter cups. A food love affair that started in 1928, and persists to this very day. While known in the UK, Reese’s peanut butter cups are very much a US thing – so it’s hardly surprising that while I’ve heard about them before, I had my very first taste of them only a week ago. (Shocking, I know.)

And… I like the idea. The chocolate shell, the almost fudgy sweet-salty peanut butter filling – but at the same time, they were too sweet and had that “artificial” taste of overly processed peanut butter and milk chocolate.

I’m sure the US folks are completely outraged right now. Don’t get me wrong – if you like them, love them, can’t live without them: more power to you! But if you are like me, and you want to taste the slight bitterness of dark chocolate, and the nutty earthiness of peanut butter, with just the right balance between sweet and salty… read on.

The strawberries arranged on top of the tart are a vibrant red and glossy from the jam glaze. An antique cake server, a white plate with a piece of the tart and antique dessert spoons are next to the tart, as well as a few whole and halved strawberries.

We’ve blinked, and it’s nearing the end of May. Which is insane, because it feels like April was only just yesterday and where is the time going? Lately, I feel like I’m always in a hurry, too busy to think, always chasing after things that need doing, while adding another few to my bullet-pointed, highlighter-exhausted to-do list.

But time running aways from us has at least one upside: summer is almost here, and berries are (or will soon be) in season. Berries of all sorts, with their shiny colours and juicy taste and smell of sunshine. To celebrate, let’s make this gluten free strawberry tart.
