Peppermint Crisp is a milk chocolate bar filled with a multitude of thin cylinders of mint-flavoured toffee. Invented in South Africa by Wilson-Rowntree, it is now produced by Nestlé. The Peppermint Crisp is sold within Australia, New Zealand and South Africa as a 35 gram bar.
It is common for children to bite off both ends of the bar and use the series of mint tubes as a straw to drink milk.
It is often used in peppermint tart, a favourite South African dessert, and as a crushed topping on pavlova cakes in Australia and New Zealand.
Uses in cooking
The Peppermint Crisp can be used as an ingredient in mint chocolate cheesecakes and slices, and broken-up to decorate the top of pavlova meringue or cheesecake. James and Melanie Maddock used Peppermint Crisp on top of their dessert during a food challenge on the cooking show My Kitchen Rules.
