Peppermint crisp tart has been part of South African culture for a long time. It is one of the simplest of desserts but also one of the tastiest.

To prepare a peppermint crisp tart, you only need a few easy ingredients. The best part is that no cooking or baking is involved. It takes only about 10 minutes to prepare this dessert but then you need to wait at least three hours for the tart to set.
