Method
Fill a small baking pan, preferably square, with aluminum foil. I used a 22×14 cm one and it turned out OK because it was deep enough. You can use a 20×20 cm or a 22×22 one. You choose. In the smaller they would be taller. It depends on how big you want them. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix the melted butter, the whole-grain biscuits crumbs and the powdered sugar together until combined. Stir in the 200gr of peanut butter. Spread into the prepared baking pan.

In another smaller bowl put the 2tbsp of peanut butter along with the chocolate chips. Microwave them in the highest level until melted for about 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Spread over the peanut butter layer.

Now you must let it chill until completely firm, for at least 3 hours. Before cutting the tarts into pieces, let them sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Serve them chilled. They can also last some hours out of the fridge. You can freeze them for 3 months.

Enjoy!

*Use a food processor to have nice thin crumbs
