Siba’s tip…

I like serving my Peppermint Crisp Tart in glasses as it creates an elegant serving. You could make this traditionally in a large dish, just give it 2 more hours of chilling time.

You could also replace the dairy cream with coconut cream, just make sure to use the creamy part of the cream in a can (not the liquid). Keep that for smoothies.
