After Eight Mint and Cookie Crumb Truffles

 After Eight Mint and Cookie Crumb Truffles

I love After Eight mints (for those of you that aren’t lucky enough to have them where you are, they are thin dark chocolate sweets with a creamy mint filling – here!). And those that read my blog regularly already know how much I enjoy making truffles (so pretty yet so simple to make!) – so these After Eight mint and cookie crumb truffles tick all the boxes!

These were for a get-together with kids and adults, so I used milk chocolate (my sons prefer it) but I will definitely make these again coated in dark chocolate!
