THE SPRINGBOKKIE (PEPPERMINT CRISP TRIFLE)

In honour of the Springboks, Rugby World Cup 2019 champions, The Springbokkie was created. A new kind of Peppermint Crisp pudding – an extra green-and-gold version, with a base of bright green jelly.
- 2 packets cream soda or green jelly
- 1½ cups whipping cream
- 2 x 360 g cans Nestlé caramel treat (Dulce de Leche)
- 2 x 200 g packets Bakers Tennis biscuits (or Graham crackers, Arnott's Nice biscuits, Maria’s, Nilla wafers, Krispies Coconut)
- 2 x 150 g slabs Nestlé Peppermint Crisp, roughly broken into chunks
- Prepare the jelly according to package instructions. Pour into a large trifle bowl and chill to set for a few hours. Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Use an electric stand-mixer for about 3 minutes on a medium speed and then speed it up for the last minute. In a separate bowl, beat the Caramel Treat using a fork to loosen and ensure a smooth texture.
- Gently fold the caramel into the whipped cream, then add most of the chocolate pieces (set aside a cupful for decoration).
- Make a single layer of whole Tennis biscuits on top of the jelly and around the sides of the bowl. Top with layers of the caramel mixture, then add another layer of Tennis biscuits and repeat until the bowl is full.
- Sprinkle the remaining Peppermint Crisp over the top. Cover with tin foil and chill for at least 7 hours before serving.
- If you have any filling left, layer with more Tennis biscuits in a small, shallow tray to make a quick peppermint tart. Chill for a treat in case you can’t wait for the trifle.

I absolutely adore ricotta cheese, so when I came across this recipe, i had to give it a go. The tubes are stuffed with a rich and flavoursome ricotta filling, then covered in marinara and then topped with a generous amount of mozzarella! Yum 🍝.
These vegan biscuits are fluffy, tender, and yum with a dollop of jam or vegan butter. This recipe incorporates almond milk and coconut oil so they’re delectably flaky and full of flavour.
