You can mix it up with your very own choice of chocolates, it does not have to be 'After Eight' by using different chocolates to change the flavour taste.

Ingredients

  • 170g Butter
  • 200g White Caster Sugar
  • 120g Light or Dark Brown Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 110g Cocoa Powder
  • 50g plain flour
  • 6-10 After Eight Mints or a choice of your own chocolate for decorations etc

I have linked all the items I bought from the list above, where you can purchase all the ingredients.

Step by Step Guide

1. First, measure out a 170g use of butter on a scale and then melt that amount in a pan.

5. Once you have continuously mixed your main ingredients. Now it is time to pour some parts of the chocolate mixture into a wide pan, ensuring all corners are covered with your melted chocolate spread.

6. You then add your chocolate pieces on top, in my instant, I used 12 pieces of After 8 Mint chocolate. Finally, pour the rest of your melted spread on top of those After 8 mint pieces until all the mint pieces are covered with the melted chocolate.

Lastly

Once that's completed, pop it into your oven between 150C and 180C for about 30-40 minutes until they are ready to take out and depending on how well cooked you want it. I placed it on 180C, keep making sure to dab a knife every 10 minutes or so to check if it's baked.

Conclusion

After the brownies are fully prepared and baked, let it settle for at least 5 to 10 minutes until it is cold. Then cut those brownies into small little pieces and if you wish to decorate it, then you can add your own pieces to make it creative. I included three little strawberries to make it colourful and fresh.

Below is the outcome of these scrumptious brownies. Pretty pleased with my effort in making these, although I made such a mess in the kitchen! Ha!
