    Not only is it super easy to make (there’s literally only 4 ingredients), it is also ready in almost no time. We love the beautiful colours of the layers in the tart, and the chocolate and caramel combination is to die for. It’s best left overnight to completely firm up, but if you simply cannot wait that long, you and your guests can dig in after two hours.

    Prep it before your guests arrive and this Peppermint Crisp pudding will be ready once it’s time for dessert to be served. If you do not want to mix the cream and the caramel together, you can layer it separately too.

    “You haven’t had hot chocolate until you’ve had THIS hot chocolate. Flavoured with one of my guilty pleasures, Peppermint Crisp, it adds a decadent, local twist. The trick to making a really good hot chocolate, is to make a thick paste from cocoa powder, sugar and milk before adding the milk. This gives you a velvety, thick, rich hot chocolate!”
