How to make fancy After Eight Chocolate in 7 steps

Christian Escribà demonstrated for a TV5 show called Mixeur. The recipe is an idea from the cooking genius, Chef Ferran Adrià of El Bulli. I took pictures from my TV, which explained the lower image quality.

  1. You start with fresh mint leaves.
  2. Deposit the leaves on a waxed paper sheet in a cookie tray.
  3. Pour hot chocolate on each leave – my choice would be dark chocolate
  4. With a spatula, spread the melted chocolate to create a layer
  5. Deposit in the fridge for cooling down
  6. Carefully turn and remove the paper
  7. Use a dessert tongs to place them in a serving plate

With a recipe so simple there are no reason why not to serve homemade mignardises after your meal.

  1. Oh my gosh thanks Kim! I love After 8s but their ingredients can make me a bit ill… so this is the PERFECT solution! I will plant a pot of mint this summer on my balcony just for dessert :)
