Caramel Mint Dream


Caramel Mint Dream is Dimitri's favorite dessert at SPUR Steakhouse. He never orders anything else for dessert.

I decided to try my own spin on this crazy delicious dessert and made it a couple of times, but not recently however. We also haven't been to SPUR in some time and I just could not remember the way I used to make it.

This is now my new (and apparently more improved) recipe.

I never thought that I'll think-up my own recipes considering the first time I tried taught Cheri how to bake a cake from a box.  She was only about 5 years old at the time - Full of confidence, I placed the box mixture, oil, eggs etc on the kitchen counter (Now, she's watching with full concentration!).  I showed her how to mix everything, pour the batter evenly into two prepared pans and into the oven.  That's when this little 5 year old became a bit puzzled as she asked ".. Mommy, when does the eggs go in?.." Sure enough, the eggs were still on the counter ! I FORGOT TO ADD THE EGGS !!! Very calmly I told her not to worry, we'll fix it quickly ... I grabbed the pans from the oven, broke an egg into each and just stirred it vigorously to mix with the batter. (I have never before and never after had "cake" like that again).

For many years after that incident, we only had bakery or supermarket cake! Unbelievable ... still can not believe I left out the EGGS.

Caramel Mint Dream

300g Shortbread biscuits (I used EET-SUM-MORES)
100g Crispy Peppermint Chocolate (I used Cadbury)
1 can (397g) Caramel Condensed Milk
1/4 cup Full Cream Coconut Milk
Whipped Fresh Cream, (I did not sweeten mine, as this is a very sweet dessert)
2 TB Peppermint Crisp Chocolate, finely grated

1.) Place the Shortbread biscuits and the Crispy Peppermint Chocolate in a mixer with a sharp blade - chop it up until crumbly.
2.) Beat the Caramel Condensed Milk and the Coconut Milk until smooth in a separate bowl.
3.) Place a tablespoon full of the biscuit mixture in the bottom of 4 glasses.
4.) Divide the Caramel mixture among the 4 glasses, pour on top of the biscuits in each glass.
5.) Use the remaining crumb mixture on top of the caramel.
6.) Top it off with Whipped cream and grated Peppermint crisp.

Chill before serving.

{THE rugby match begins in a few minutes - and worst of all - my team against Roy's team .. agghh and they have home advantage ! }

Therefore, bye-bye for now,

Linda

  2. oh my goodness this sounds delicious! One question though What is Full Cream Milk? Is it cream or maybe full fat milk? I've never heard of it so I want to make sure I have the right stuff on hand. Thanks for sharing at Creative Thursday :)
