Decadent Delight: The Best and Only Peppermint Crisp Tart Recipe
for Mint Chocolate Lovers
1 can (397g) sweetened condensed milk
300ml whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 Peppermint Crisp chocolate bars, grated
1 packet (200g) tennis biscuits or digestive biscuits
100g melted butter
Begin by crushing the biscuits into fine crumbs. You can do this by placing them in a ziplock bag and crushing them with a rolling pin or using a food processor.
In a mixing bowl, combine the biscuit crumbs with the melted butter, ensuring they are thoroughly coated. This mixture will form the delectable crust for your tart.
Press the biscuit mixture evenly into the base of a rectangular or square dish, forming a firm and even layer. Place the dish in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the filling.
In a separate mixing bowl, whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract to the whipped cream. Gently fold the mixture until it is well combined and smooth.
Take the chilled tart crust out of the refrigerator and spread a generous layer of the creamy mixture over the crust, ensuring it covers the entire surface.
Sprinkle a generous amount of grated Peppermint Crisp chocolate over the cream layer, allowing the delightful minty flavor to infuse the dessert.
Repeat the layers, starting with another layer of biscuits followed by the creamy mixture and grated Peppermint Crisp chocolate. Continue layering until you’ve used up all the ingredients, creating a beautiful mosaic of flavors and textures.
Once all the layers are complete, cover the tart with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight. This chilling time allows the tart to set and the flavors to meld together, resulting in a truly irresistible dessert.
Just before serving, garnish the top with an additional sprinkling of grated Peppermint Crisp chocolate, adding a touch of elegance and enhancing the visual appeal.
Slice and serve the Peppermint Crisp Tart chilled, allowing your guests to savor each heavenly bite.
