  • 2 284 ml tubs (10 fl oz each) Double Cream
  • 1 397 g tin Caramel Condensed Milk
  • 2 packets Nice biscuits (original recipe uses Tennis biscuits)
  • 3 35g bars Peppermint Aero (original recipe uses Peppermint Crisp)
  • ½ teaspoon Peppermint Essence


  • Whip the cream until soft peaks form
  • Add caramel and peppermint essence and mix together
  • Grate 1 of the chocolate bars and mix in.
  • Arrange a layer of biscuits on the bottom of 2 tart dishes
  • Spread half the cream/caramel mixture evenly across both dishes
  • Repeat with a second layer of biscuits and the remainder of the cream/caramel
  • Grate the remaining bars of chocolate and sprinkle over the top
  • Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours


I used 2 round 9-inch foil pie dishes, but you can use square ones of a similar size.
Be careful not to overwhip the cream or it will turn into butter.  You are looking for a soft-peak consistency.
Taste the mixture after adding the peppermint essence to ensure you have sufficient peppermint flavour.  If you need more you can add 1 drop at a time until the desired flavour is reached.
This has to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight).  This will give the biscuits time to soften in the cream mixture.
