A light dessert, suited perfectly to follow rich, heavy dinners. Sweet enough to satisfy sugar cravings, but not over the top with flavours and too sickly.
Use After Eights to get the best possible, but any other soft Chocolate bar with Mint Flavourings will work quite well still.
To Serve 6
405g Tin Carnation Light Condensed Milk
150ml Extra Thick Single Cream
Finely Grated Zest of 4 Unwaxed Limes
150ml Lime Juice
8 After Eight Mints, sliced into thin strips
1tbsp Fresh Mint Leaves, roughly chopped
1tsp Granulated Sugar
Few Drops of Lime Juice
1. Whisk the Condensed Milk with the Single Cream together with an electric whisk, until it is light and foamy. Add the Lime Juice and the Lime Zest, for a couple of minutes until the mixture is thicker.
2. Pour two thirds of the Lime Cream between each serving glass, then spread three quarters of the After Eight slices on top of the Lime Cream. Spread the rest of the mixture on top of the Mint Strips, and then chill for at least an hour.
3. Just before serving, mix the Mint Leaves with the Sugar, then moisten with the Lime Juice, and lightly bruise with the rear of a spoon. Sprinkle over the top, and decorate with the remaining After Eight strips.
