If you’ve ever been to a South African family braai, you know there’s usually a feast and it nearly always ends with a dessert baked by mom.

You could certainly control the world with dessert, with a buttery crust and a creamy filling.

Mom’s peppermint crisp tart suggestions

If you have the time, make this dessert the day before so it can set. Setting it up right will help cut squares that are the right size for everyone and improve the texture. You may alternatively wait until just before serving to add the crushed chocolate topping. You may build as many layers as you like and it will still seem like a genuine cake. For added texture and deliciousness, incorporate some peppermint chocolate into the whipped dough mixture.

With this renowned treat, it’s time to reminisce about good old days. Making Mom’s peppermint crisp tart will make everyone happy.
