This peppermint fridge cake tastes pretty awesome, and takes on a different twist as it doesn’t use the tennis biscuits as a base, but rather mixes them all together.

Obviously this is not the full version, but it is so it’s quick (and simple) and should take around 10 minutes.

Total time




  • 1 pack of Tennis biscuits

  • 4 Peppermint Crisp bars

  • 1 can caramel

  • 300 ml double cream


  • Whip the cream in a bowl.
  • Crush the tennis biscuits in a closed packet (or however you want to do it, but not too much).
  • Add the caramel to the cream, and just mix together.
  • Grate three of the Peppermint Crisp bars. Add the tennis biscuits and peppermint crisp to the caramel mix, stirring with a spoon (you don’t want to crush the biscuits any more).
  • Lastly, grate the last Peppermint Crisp bar and then place the ingredients into a serving bowl and throw the peppermint crisp over the top.
  • Throw it in the fridge for at least half an hour (but we all know the braai will take a lot longer than that) then serve up and enjoy!
