Recipe: After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies Recipe

Is it too early to mention the C word? Christmas I mean. Whilst we haven't put our tree up yet, I'm feeling super festive already this year and may have even watched my first Christmas film on Netflix last weekend.

After Eights are one of the nation's Christmas chocolates of choice, however I never really think of them as a Christmas treat as Chris will happily eat them all year round (they're one of his favourites). Whilst looking for inspiration for a dinner party with friends a few weeks back, Chris came up with the genius idea to combine one of his favourite chocolates with his favourite dessert, and boy am I glad I listened to him for once!

After Eight Brownies Recipe

This recipe is perfect if, this December, you find yourself with a spare box of After Eights, or you fancy making a dessert with a bit of a minty twist, then I've got just the thing...

After Eight Brownies

Makes 16 brownies

185g unsalted butter, softened
170g dark chocolate
100g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
3 large eggs
200g caster sugar
25 After Eight chocolates (pretty much the whole box...)

1. Melt the butter and chocolate together over a bain-marie until smooth and velvety. Put to one side to cool slightly.

2. Preheat the oven to 160c and grease and line a 20cm square cake tin.

3. Beat together the eggs and the sugar until thick and creamy.

4. Pour the melted chocolate into the egg/sugar mixture and gently fold together until well combined. Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder and gently fold this in to the mixture too until it looks fudgy.

5. Pour half of the brownie mixture into the cake tin and smooth over until level.

6. Place 9 After Eights on top of the brownie mixture, evenly spaced out, pushing them only slightly into the brownie mix then take the remaining brownie mixture and pour over the top, levelling it out.

7. Place a further 16 After Eights on top of the brownie mixture, evenly spaced out, pushing them ever so slightly into the mix.

7. Bake in the pre heated oven for 25-30 minutes. The brownie mix should be starting to crack. Take out the oven and leave to cool completely in the tin (overnight is best). Remove and slice up into 16 small squares once completely cooled - each brownie square should have it's own After Eight mint on top.

  4. The pandemic induced lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19 was not something I would recommend again for anyone. However it did get me time to hone my baking skills. With a quick web search I found this recipe and it was an absolute classic. However I also found help on the web for dissertation writers reviews that had experts and best writers that did the work for me and got me the best grade. Now I didn’t had to choose between my hobby and real life!
