Peppermint Crisp Fridge Tart
RECIPE BY MARGARET EDWARDS

Margaret is a 72 year old granny of 3 and sent us this simple recipe with a special story.
This recipe is old and simple, but has a story.
 
The recipe is the peppermint crisp and caramel desert, named by students in the 1970's as Transkei mud who were lodging with
 Missionary friends.
 The Lady, also a missionary took the recipe to the UK, and she plays tennis with
 Sir Cliff Richards, so she made some for him.
 Recently he was asked by an editor to give his favourite recipe for a book that's going to get published. He gave the "Transkei Mud " recipe as his favourite.
 Peppermint crisp was not readily available in the UK. In the "story" of the recipe he thanked the lady for the recipe.
 So when Margaret heard Expresso was looking for recipes this story came to mind.
