Mint Torte and Cream Dessert

St Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to cook, bake and craft for ! I absolutely love the colors – the rainbow, yes, but my favorite combination is the green and gold together.

Last year I shared a very simple IRISH DIRT PUDDING containing crushed Oreos as the “dirt” but today I am sharing a little more elegant dessert.

This Mint Torte and Cream Dessert has gooey and creamy layers giving you a very special taste indeed.

I used a shallow baking dish and baked the Mint Torte until done but still a little gooey. To the stage where it is in just before it starts to look dull on top. Dull is fully cooked and a bit more crispy on the edges.

And nothing better than Mint flavored, creamy layers …

Course: Dessert
Servings: 4 People
Author: Linda Nortje
Ingredients
  • 200 g Mint Chocolate chopped ( 7 oz )
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter cubed
  • 3/4 cup Fresh Cream divided (double cream/heavy cream)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 TB Caster Sugar
  • 1 t Cocoa Powder
  • 1 TB Peppermint Liqueur or 1 teaspoon Peppermint Essence
  • 1-2 drops Green Food Coloring
  • Edible Gold Crystals
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) – spray a shallow oven dish ( 20 x 20cm / 8 x 8 inch ) with cooking oil.

  2. Melt together the Mint Chocolate and Butter – stir until smooth and well combined – set aside.

  3. Beat 1/4 cup of the Cream until stiff in a separate mixing bowl.

  4. In a large bowl, beat together the Eggs and Caster Sugar until tripled in volume – fold in the Cocoa Powder and half of the melted Chocolate/Butter mixture – stir well and add the remaining half, fold in gently.

  5. Fold in the whipped Cream to the mixture – pour into the prepared dish and bake 25 – 30 minutes until done but not fully set.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool completely – the Torte will set but will still be a little moist.
  7. Chop the Torte into chunks and keep aside.
  8. Whip the remaining Cream until stiff peaks form – add the Liqueur (or Essence) and a drop or two of the Food Coloring – whip until combined.

  9. Starting with the Torte, layer the dessert – two layers of each, ending with a layer of Cream.
  10. Sprinkle over the Edible Gold Crystals and serve.
