- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Unroll pie crusts on work surface. With rolling pin, roll each crust lightly into a 12-inch round. With 3-inch round cutter, cut 24 rounds from crusts, rerolling scraps as necessary. Press each round in bottom and up sides of 24 ungreased 1-3/4-inch muffin cups, pleating as necessary and extending slightly above sides of cups. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until very light golden brown; cool. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
- Chop candy bars. Reserve 24 pieces for garnish. Place remaining candy bar pieces in bottoms of cooled crust-lined cups.
- In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, peanut butter and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in egg until well combined. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture over candy bar pieces in each tart. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until centers are set. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
- In a small saucepan, combine chocolate pieces and cream. Cook and stir over low heat until melted. Cool slightly. Spoon a dollop of chocolate on top of each tartlet; garnish with reserved pieces of candy bar.
- Refrigerate 2 hours before serving. Store in refrigerator. Makes 24 tartlets.
