  • 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.

  • 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.
