How To Make Peppermint Tart

Recipe for Peppermint fridge tart

South Africans "hou van lekker eet" and that doesn't limit us to braai and boerewors. We've also got a pretty strong sweet tooth that has birthed dishes like Milk tart, koeksisters, Malva pudding and of course peppermint tart. The peppermint tart may be a popular dish and easy to make, but for some reason, we often save it as a delicacy that's only pulled out during the festive season along with the gammon and crayfish.

Don't ask me why. I don't make the rules, I only comment on them. The peppermint tart isn't hard to make. Still, I'm told because of the specific ingredients needed to make it, it's pretty hard to replicate offshore, making it all the more South African and a reason to stop kidding yourself in the UK, NZ and Australia and come home already.

Now that I've made you "lus". Let's look at ho you make this South African dessert dish.


One thing about this dish is that it is not ingredient intensive, it's literally four things and you're done. So even if you have none of the ingredients in the house, it would take one trip to the store and you probably wouldn't be longer than 15 minutes.

  • A Ayrshire whipping cream
  • Nestlé Caramel Treat
  • Bakers Tennis Biscuits
  • Nestlé Peppermint Crisp, roughly broken into chunks or grated

Cooking instructions

  1. Whip the cream until soft peaks form.

If you're not keen on the workout you can use electric stand-mixer for about 3 minutes on a medium speed and then speed it up for the last minute

  1. In a separate bowl, beat the caramel with a fork to loosen and to ensure a smooth texture.
  2. Gently fold the caramel into the whipped cream, then add most of the chocolate pieces (set aside a cupful for decoration).
  3. Line a dish with a single layer of whole Tennis biscuits.
  4. Top with half the caramel mixture, then adds another layer of Tennis biscuits.
  5. Pour the remainder of the caramel mixture over the second layer of Tennis biscuits.
  6. Sprinkle the last of the Peppermint Crisp chunks over the top.
  7. Cover with tin foil and chill for at least 7 hours before serving.
