  • 1/2 tsp Desiccated Coconut
  • 250 ml Cream
  • 1 tin Nestlé Caramel Top n Fill
  • 1 Packet Arnott's Mint Slices


  • Use a food processor to process the Butternut Snap/Nice biscuits and desiccated coconut into a crumb. Put aside till ready to use.
  • Now process the mint slices and set aside for assembly.
  • Remove the caramel from the tin, place into a mixing bowl and hand whisk for about a minute, till it's smooth.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whip the cream till you have still peaks - If using a stand mixer, be careful not to over whip
  • Add all but 3 teaspoons of the mint slices to the caramel, mix it together, then stir in the caramel into the whipped cream Mix it well, it will be a thick, paste like consistancy.
  • Now we're going to layer your dessert. Either use 6 dessert bowls or 1 large dish. Start your layers with the biscuit crumb
  • Spread the creamy mixture over the crumb, then cover with crumbs, layer with cream, and so on till you've run out.
  • Sprinkle with reserved mint crumbs and chill in the fridge for 2-3hours.
  • Best chilled overnight Keeps in the refrigerator for 1 week


*can substitute 1/2 pack Butternut snap with Nice, or scotch fingers for a less sweet crumb
