Peppermint Crisp Tart is a very popular South-African, no-bake dessert and loved by all ages ! Easy to make, therefore ideal as a week night dessert.
Who can say no to a piece (not slice) of Peppermint Tart ?
Delicious ! Does not look like much until you taste it, out of this world and with such simple ingredients as well.
One thing about this particular recipe: it does not slice well, no way, you use a LARGE decent sized spoon and dish it up, then sit back and just … enjoyyy.
Kids and adults all go crazy for this very popular South-African tart/pudding. I suppose it is really a pudding and not a tart, whatever, you can call it the way you like.
My son, especially loves anything peppermint crisp – in a cupcake form, this tart or even as an individual layered dessert
Forget the layers of biscuit and use it as a filling for .. uhm, meringues, ice cream cones, ready-made mini shells … and the list goes on.
As this is a South-African dessert:
- Caramel Condensed Milk – You can make your own if unavailable – just Google “How to make caramel condensed milk” and you will get numerous methods
- Peppermint Crisp Chocolate Bar – any peppermint chocolate will do, especially bars with the green peppermint pieces in them
I normally make this Peppermint Crisp Tart either the night before (it is so quick!), or during the morning as I am home all day. The longer the Tart stands, the better it gets !

- The tart will only set slightly – that’s okay, you want it that way !
Serve on it’s own or maybe an extra dollop of unsweetened whipped cream – it is a very sweet recipe, therefore you might want to “balance” it out with something unsweetened? As always, up to you!
