South African Recipes

Peppermint Crisp Tart History

Here in South Africa, we hold our desserts dear to our hearts, and the Peppermint Crisp Tart is a beloved classic. It is a no-bake dessert that hails from the heartland of Mzansi, getting its name from its key ingredient, the Peppermint Crisp chocolate bar. This candy bar is a true blue South African favourite that features a mint-flavoured crisp coated in rich milk chocolate. Combine this with a blend of cream and caramel, layer it between hearty Tennis biscuits, and you have the makings of a truly scrumptious peppermint crisp tart.

Tips & Tricks

My top tip for making this tart is to let it chill overnight. This allows the Tennis biscuits to soften and meld with the caramel and cream mixture, making it just heavenly to bite into. Don’t skimp on the Peppermint Crisp either; it’s the star of the show, after all. Just remember, patience is key with this tart – the longer it rests, the more magnificent the taste.
