Dog Parkin' (and Mystery Dessert)

Mindy and I just got back from a lovely fall run out at our favorite dog park. We haven't been to the dog park in months - in part because Mindy, being her usual exuberant self, accidentally knocked somebody over out there when she was running around like a crazy-dog and it kind of freaked me out. Also, I took up swimming this summer, which usually had to take place during prime Dog Park hours. However, now that it's cooling down outside and we can finally venture out and run without feeling like we're going to suffocate, I think it may be time to start going back. I'd forgotten how much I love this space, a relatively peaceful retreat right in the heart of the city. And, of course, Mindy loves it, too.

You coming, Mom?

The real reason I'm blogging, though (because I'm instead supposed to be getting ready for a wedding), is because I had this fabulous dessert last night and I really, really, really want to know what it was. The nanny of some friends made it, and all I know is that it's supposedly South African and the main flavors are chocolate, mint, and coconut. It's got a pudding-like texture and, for reasons I can't for the life of me figure out, is predominantly orange. And it has a cookie-like crust that is bright white. Anyone have ANY idea what this is or how to make it? My friend was going to ask her nanny for the recipe, but I'm not sure whether she's going to be able to get it.

Anyone?

Oh, sweet mystery.

  1. I don't know why, but I want to eat it. If it's South African we simply need to facebook message some South African strangers... I'm on the case.

  3. Amber, you are my hero. That enabled me to find a recipe...oddly enough, from a website for South Africans in Austin! http://www.sa-austin.com/fridge-tart-recipe.html

  5. Fridge tart - it's got a great homemade name! Peppermint Crisp chocolate bars sound a lot like Mint Aero bars available in Canada. Maybe someone will bring you some - maybe in May!

    Still don't get why it was orange though...
