This is a well-known and  favourite recipe in South Africa and has become quite popular among my friends here in Australia.  It is easy to make and really yummy. Rumour has it that Nestle only distributes Peppermint Crisp chocolate in South Africa and Australia. If you can’t get your hands on peppermint crisp chocolate use any other chocolate with mint toffee pieces (mint cracknel) could be used.



1 packet plain digestive biscuits
1 can caramel treat
2 cups cream, fresh
400 grams peppermint crisp chocolate bars, grated
Place the tennis biscuits in rows at the bottom of your desired dish, ensuring that the bottom of the dish is covered.
Place the caramel in a mixing bowl and mix until smooth.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the cream until stiff peaks form, being careful not to over-whip.
Add the whipped cream and 100g of the grated peppermint crisp chocolate to the caramel and combine well.
Spread a generous amount of the mixture over the tennis biscuits and spread evenly.
Add another layer of tennis biscuits and caramel mixture and continue this process untill your dish is full.
Sprinkle the remaining peppermint crisp over the top and place in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
Serve with a dollop of cream or as desired.

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
