Peppermint Crisp tart – Proudly South African
If you grew up in South Africa you will most probably have a few fond memories which include a peppermint crisp tart. It is delicious, it is easy, I truly love this recipe and trust you will too. I dare almost say it is my husband’s favourite.
– 2 cups of fresh cream (500ml)
– 1 can of Treat (250ml baked condensed milk)
– 2 packs of tennis biscuits (I use about 1 and a quarter)
– 1 large slab of peppermint crisp (I use the Crisp brand, you will see on the photos it is chocolate on the outside with crystal clear green peppermint on the inside)
Yes you read correctly – that is the only ingredients you need…
1. Whisk the cream until it is stiff, it will form little horns that stay upright in the cream if you press the whisk into the cream and lift it. Be sure your cream is stiff enough (and does not become too stiff like butter). After this step you will not be able to redo this.
2. Whisk the can of treat together with the whisked cream. I usually keep a bit of treat aside to add to the top of the tart in the end.
3. I now make little blots with the cream in the large square or rectangular bowl that I will use, this will help the biscuits to stick to the bottom of the bowl and not move around when you pour the cream mixture over it.
4. Pack out a layer of tennis biscuits at bottom of bowl.
5. Before you pour the cream mixture over the biscuits break the chocolate into pieces (I like some solid pieces in the tart). Stir it into the cream mixture. I usually keep a bit of chocolate aside as well to sprinkle over the top.
6. Pour a deep enough layer of cream mixture over the biscuits to cover them.
7. Repeat the steps until your mixture is finished. Add a layer of biscuits.. pour cream… repeat if you still have enough mixture left.
8. Once you are done layering sprinkle chocolate over the top, you can also add a few lumps of caramel/treat.
9. Place in fridge, it is best kept overnight before you eat.
It is that easy. Regardless of how easy this recipe is, it really is delicious and a great treat!
