After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies. Hello friends, so how are you today? On Friday we got sent a lovely parcel of baking things to make some yummy cakes from After Eight.

They asked us if we would also like to take part in a fun baking challenge: After Eight Bakes. I got to choose which of their recipes I would like to recreate; cheesecake, brownies or white choc mousse?

Decisions, decisions! I love cheese cake but we all love Brownies, so brownies it was!

Indulge in the irresistible taste of After Eight in a Brownies! This mouthwatering treat combines the rich, fudgy goodness of classic brownies with the refreshing coolness of After Eight mint chocolate.

We have had a sneaky tasty of them whilst they were warm and we are saving some of them for an after running club treat later. The rest for lunch box treats, yummy!! They are not very sweet as the recipe only has 5g of sugar in them. So next time I might add a bit more. Shhh!!!

    5g of sugar? Is that correct? X

      This was After Eights recipe they sent me that I use. I remember Googling to see if anyone else had made them to see if it was a misprint as I thought they would have needed more sugar and found that it was correct. The cakes turn out yummy but not as sweet as i usually like my cakes.
