Is there anything that brings more joy then ice-cream?
There might just be one small thing that could beat it, and that’s a dessert the comes together in minutes.
This peppermint crisp sundae is a spin off on a South African classic, the peppermint crisp tart. Its the kind of dessert that puts you in a sugar coma for days but its worth every mouthful.
This sundae version is just as good and somehow the chill of the ice-cream with the crisp coolness of peppermint is a match I could get used to.
Vanilla Ice Cream
A tin of Caramel Treat
Peppermint Crisp Chocolate bar
Chocolate Sauce (optional)
A quirky glass jar
Let your ice-cream sit for a couple of minutes until it’s slightly soft, this will make it easier to work with.
While the ice cream is softening, roughly crush some tennis biscuits and set aside in a bowl. Crush or grate your peppermint crisp bar too.
Mix the caramel treat until it forms a deliciously smooth texture.
Now the fun begins, time to assemble.
Layer your ingredients in a jar. Start with the ice-cream try to level to top a touch then sprinkle over some of the tennis biscuits until the ice-cream is completely covered. Top the crushed biscuits with a generous helping of caramel treat. Cover the caramel with a layer of crushed peppermint.
Repeat these steps until the jar is full. Pop the sundae back into the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes, depending how long you able to wait 😉
Once it’s nice and chilled, you can sit back relax and enjoy!
