These tarts have become a ‘requirement’ when I catch up with girlfriends for morning tea or dinner parties.  They are extremely yummy and super easy to make, everybody will love them and think you slaved in the kitchen for hours.

These are also a family fav in our place – But I use Ginger Snaps on the bottom and heat them till they are soft in the oven in shallow muffin trays, pushing them in to shape then leaving them to cool forming little cases.

Just adds a nice taste to them..:)

Thats exactly what i do Chelle, except that I use butternut snaps…also yummy 🙂

Yep! We use butternut snaps here too! Delicious!! And instead of flake I usually melt a little chocolate and pipe some little decorations onto baking paper for the top… like I did here

Making caramel is a lot of fun too. I had a ball making these homemade caramel apples by Martha Stewart. Perfect for Halloween!

Instead of using tart cases, you can use ginger nut biscuits…just pop them in a muffin tin and bung them in the oven for 5-10 mins (watch them).  They will soften and sink down into a bowl shape.  Then just take them out, let them cool and harden again and add the rest.  Yummy!

 Sorry Chelle!  Just read your post – duh!

Katrina May 16, 2012 - 9:09 AM

Such a simple and great idea, thank you for the tip

Add a slice or 2 of banana at the bottom – yummm

Katrina May 16, 2012 - 9:08 AM

Ooh Leanne, that sounds divine, I’m going to have to try that next time 🙂

The banana is a real winner, it’s like a banoffee pie – delish!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife November 6, 2014 - 9:23 AM
