CHOCOLATE AND MINT BROWNIES

Now that I have started blogging about chocolate recipes just can’t seem to stop my self, this week I came across this box of After eight chocolates this being one of my favorite flavor thought of combining this luscious, gooey, chocolaty brownie recipe.  Brownies are a favorite across the world not only are they yummy but absolutely easy to make. 
Ingredients
100 gms Chocolate ( I like using the Cadbury Bournville)
45 gms Cocoa powder
50 gms Flour
1Tsp Baking Powder
175 gms Sugar
2 Eggs
50 gms walnut/pista
100gms butter
6 pieces of After eight chocolate ( I have used Mint based Chocolate you can use  any of your favorite flavour)



Melt  chocolate and butter together in a sauce pan over low heat





Sieve Flour, Cocoa powder and Baking powder together in a bowl.





Stir in powder sugar and mix it together.







Slowly add the melted butter and chocolate mixture.










Mix properly.






Now Start adding one egg at a time & mix.






Add the nuts and mix.






Take a 8 inch tray and line it with butter paper. Pour the brownie batter in the tray








Now place the After Eight mints over the batter.








Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20  mins at 160 degrees C.Remove let it cool completely and cut it in to squares.
Brownies taste the yummiest if eaten hot with vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce.
