After Eight Mint Chocolate Brownies



It's less than three weeks until Christmas and the organised feeling that I had in October has faded, leaving me with a bit of a panicky feeling having not even thought about what food we'll be eating over the festive period.


I've been feeling rough for a week or more and haven't managed to rustle up the motivation to start list making but fear not, I have managed to find motivation to make some chocolate brownies, with thanks to After Eight.


These brownies are crispy on the top and lovely and gooey inside, with a layer of After Eight mints running through the centre. They are delicious warm or cold, with or without ice cream, and would make a perfect dessert at a Christmas dinner party. I based the brownies on a Nigella recipe but changed the quantities a bit.

  • Beat in the eggs
  • Beat in the flour and cocoa powder
  • Add half the mixture to a lined & greased 13"x9" baking pan
  • Lay a single layer of After Eight mints on top of the mixture - you may need to have a row of halves (you will have 3 or 4 leftover to enjoy as a treat another time)
  • Pour the remaining mixture over the mints
  • Bake in a preheated 180C oven for approximately 20-25 minutes
  • Allow to cool slightly in the tin before cutting into squares
