Make this easy peppermint crisp tart recipe like they do at home in South Africa.


  • 625ml (2½ cups) double cream
  • 397g (1 x 14oz can) caramel
  • 2.5ml (½ tsp) peppermint essence
  • 300g (27) Tennis biscuits
  • 4 x 35g (5oz) Peppermint Crisp bars, broken into pieces


  1. Whip the cream until soft peaks form.
  2. Gently stir in the caramel and peppermint essence.
  3. Place a single layer of the biscuits in a large container. The one I used was 25 x 20 x 7cm (10 x 7.5 x 3in).
  4. Top the biscuits with a layer of the caramel cream, then sprinkle with some of the chocolate. 
  5. Repeat the layers but make sure you end up with the chocolate layer on top. I ended up repeating it 3 times. If you do more, you will need more biscuits!
  6. Chill in the fridge for 4 hours before serving. Enjoy!
