This dessert practically screams decadence, and with so many sweet and rich flavours, this Amarula Fridge tart with Caramel and Cheese is the perfect dish for you if you are wanting to feel completely indulged!
This Amarula Fridge tart is inspired by South African cuisine, with Amarula being the star of the show. Amarula is a South African cream liqueur that is a blend of fermented and distilled fruit of the African Marula tree, and whole cream and sugar, resulting in a rich and silky liqueur with a hint of butterscotch flavour. Amarula also offers a bunch of different flavours, such as Vanilla Spice, Raspberry and Chocolate, African Boabab, as well as Ethiopian Coffee, so feel free to mix it up with your flavours!
This recipe takes a total of 45 minutes and uses simple ingredients that do not require too much work. Once you have made this tart, you will be left with a silky, rich, and decadent (albeit slightly boozy) dessert that will leave you feeling all kinds of wonderful!
Although this liqueur is made in South Africa, it is shipped worldwide so feel free to indulge in this treat wherever you are in the world! It is totally worth trying and we’ll be surprised if you don’t enjoy it.
