Peppermint Crisp Tart

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.

Peppermint Crisp Tart

Who can say no to a piece (not slice) of Peppermint Crisp Tart ? Bet you almost all South-Africans love this decadent dessert !

Peppermint Crisp 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: The tart does not slice well, no way, you use a decent sized spoon and dish it up, then sit back and just … enjoyyy.

The above image shows the layers a little better.

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 cupcake form like my Peppermint Crisp Cupcakes. Or even as an individual layered dessert which I then mostly make my Caramel Mint Dream.

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

Peppermint Crisp Tart

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 !

Serve on it’s own or maybe an extra dollop of unsweetened whipped cream. This is a very sweet recipe, therefore you might want to “balance” it out with something unsweetened? As always, up to you!
