About

It has been on my to-do list for quite a while but I never get around to make it. There is no excuse as I got two of the most important ingredients (Tennis biscuits and Caramel treat) from a South African friend of mine. These are the products that you can only get from shops that sell South African products.

When I went through the larder, only did I realise the expiry date of the Tennis biscuits is in June. We are now in the end of May, so I thought I had to do something about it. Off I went to a nearby shop to grab some other ingredients to make Peppermint Crisps Fridge Tart. This is truly a South African dessert. I didn’t know this dessert until I knew Kristin, my SA friend living in London.

All I have to say about peppermint crisps fridge tart is that there’s so much flavours in it. What makes peppermint crisps fridge tart special, I guess, is the mixed flavours of coconut, peppermint, caramel, and chocolate. Despite high in calories, I convince myself that it is OK to eat this once in a while.

No, it’s not difficult to make peppermint crisps fridge tart. As long as you got all the ingredients, it’s just a matter of less than 25 minutes I reckon. However, it takes 3-4 hours to set.
If you are new to South African food (which I am), why don’t start getting to know their cuisine through peppermint crisps fridge tart?
