Homemade After Eights

This recipe couldn't be easier, trust me. A true classic which you will make time and time again for friends, family and and for those special occasions, like dinner parties or just to enjoy.

After eights are always those chocolates that remind me of the festive season which, I am so excited for this year because for the first time in years we have our entire family together.  With my two sisters living abroad, time together is limited and precious so I will be enjoying every second while of course enjoying these alongside some other yummy recipes coming your way in the next week or so ready for christmas.

Recipe

  • 200g Dark Chocolate
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tsp peppermint essence 
  • 180g Sukrin Icing Sugar

Method

Line a shallow tray with baking paper - this will make it easier to get out once its been made.

Melt half the chocolate either over a saucepan of water or in the microwave keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn - once melted pour into the tray shaking so it is evenly spread. put this into the fridge to set.

Mean while, in a clean bowl mix together the egg white, peppermint essence and icing sugar. This should form a spreadabe but thick paste. Essential to taste test this to make sure there is enough peppermint for your liking.

Spread this event over the chocolate once it is set (i used a palette knife). Leave this in the fridge for 30minutes - 1 hour to set fully.  Then melt the rest of the chocolate and carefully pour over the peppermint cream shaking it so it covers fully. 

Put this back in the fridge to set. You can then move this to a cutting board and break up as you wish and of course ENJOY1 Honestly this is a seriously yummy recipe you will not look back.
