Summer is fast approaching and with that come the home-made favourites. There is nothing quite like a peppermint crisp tart for pepping up an occasion.

1 packet Tennis biscuits crushed

100g melted butter

1 tin caramel

1 large (100g) peppermint crisp chocolate, chopped

1 cup fresh cream, whipped

2 tbs lemon juice


Method

In a mixing bowl, place the Tennis biscuits and butter, mix until the butter is evenly distributed. Grease a 22cm springform pan and line it with wax paper. Firmly press two-thirds of the biscuit mix into the base of the pan to form the crust.

In a separate bowl, mix lemon juice, caramel and peppermint crisp.

Fold the freshly whipped cream into the caramel mixture.

Spoon half the mixture on to the crust. Layer the rest of the biscuit crumbs. Top with final layer of caramel.

Cover with cling wrap and place the tart in to the fridge for at least two hours.

Just before serving, remove it from the fridge, place a hot cloth around the outside of the cake tin for 30 seconds.

This will ensure that the tart does not stick to the sides of the pan.

Remove the pan and you are ready to delight your dinner guests.

Garnish with peppermint crisp.

Tip: This dessert can also be made in a tart dish.
