This 4-ingredient peppermint crisp tart teaches you how to make mini peppermint crisp tarts that are perfect for any occasion. This step-by-step peppermint crisp tart recipe is

super sumptuous and packed with goodness. You will love this South African favourite!

Peppermint crisp tart is usually made in a large dessert dish and then served in portions on a plate. However, I decided to make mini peppermint crisp tarts due to its convenience when it comes to serving. Preparing your peppermint crisp tart in a small ramekin makes it easier to prepare, serve and serve.

ingredients needed to make mini peppermint crisp tarts

fresh cream

Adding fresh cream as a topping to almost every dessert elevates the taste by a whole lot. Therefore, we have used fresh cream for this dessert to make it creamylight, and delicious. The cream balances the sweetness of the caramel treat.

caramel treat

This is a very important ingredient. It is basically the ingredient that makes this peppermint crisp tart and not just a normal fridge tart. The caramel treat is a sweet thick caramel treat that is just so delicious. 

peppermint crisp chocolate

This is the cherry on top of this recipe. It is just an important ingredient in the recipe. I must say, Peppermint crisp chocolate + caramel flavours = a match made in heaven. The flavours were just meant to be, it is almost like cream and jam on a delicious buttery scone. To get that scone recipe 

tennis biscuits

It is just South African to use bakers’ Tennis biscuits to make peppermint crisp tart. If you can, I would recommend using the baker’s tennis biscuits to make this recipe, however, if you cannot, try using a coconut-flavoured biscuit.

  • 4 small glass cups


  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • 1 can (360g) caramel treat
  • 160 grams tennis biscuits
  • 50 grams peppermint crisp chocolate chopped


  • Using a hand mixer and in a large bowl, whip your fresh cream on medium speed. Be careful not to curdle your cream.
  • Add your caramel treat and your chocolate to the whipped cream and fold it generously.
  • In a separate bowl crush the tennis biscuits. You can use a food processor for this step. Do this for your chocolate as well.
  • Lastly, layer your tart in four different ramekins, start off by putting a tablespoon of the biscuit mixture then add 2 tablespoons of the cream mixture. Continue this process until your ramekins are full.
  • Place your tarts in the deep freezer for about 30 minutes.Enjoy


  • freeze your fridge tart for about 2 hours to give it a delicious homemade ice cream texture.
  • When whisking your fresh cream, make sure you do not curdle it ( over-whip), or else it will become butter. You know your cream is done when it is firm and has the consistency of whipped cream.
  •  Mix your caramel treat up first before folding it in your fresh cream because most times the treat comes separated.
