Peppermint crisp pudding jars recipe

Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus refrigeration time


1 packet choc-mint flavoured tennis biscuits

250ml cream

360g can caramel

2 peppermint crisp chocolate bars, chopped


1. Crush the tennis biscuits.

2. Beat the cream until stiff.

3. In a separate bowl, stir the caramel until smooth. Fold in the cream.

4. Spoon a layer of biscuit crumbs into small glass jars. Top with a layer of the cream and caramel mixture and then a layer of peppermint crisp. (Repeat the layers if you have a tall jar.)
