Salwaa’s Peppermint Fridge Pudding
This dessert recipe is delightfully simple to create! Peppermint Pudding is a traditional South African dessert that comprises a coconut biscuit base, creamy caramel and mint chocolate layers. Peppermint Fridge Pudding sometimes referred to as a Peppermint Crisp Fridge Tart is a must for the holidays! Here’s my recipe.
From My Kitchen To Yours – keeping our heritage alive.
Makes a large pudding or 10 individual servings.
250ml fresh cream
1 tin (410g) caramel
1 big slab peppermint chocolate, grated
15ml gelatine dissolved in 50ml warm water, optional
A couple drops of peppermint essence (optional)
1 packet tennis biscuits, crushed
Whip the cream until stiff in a large mixing bowl.
Add the caramel, gelatine, half of the grated peppermint chocolate and peppermint essence if using and mix to combine all the ingredients.
Layer the above with the crushed tennis biscuits in a serving dish or in individual portion servings using parfait glasses. Start with the biscuits and ending with the peppermint filling on top.
Sprinkle the rest of the grated chocolate on top and leave to set in the fridge for at least a couple of hours or better still overnight. Serve chilled.
Adding gelatine is optional, I only add it to shorten the setting time.
