  • 250g mascarpone
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2-3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp cream sherry (we used Harvey's Bristol Cream)
  • 200g thin after-dinner mints, plus 6 extra to serve


  1. Put the mascarpone, double cream, caster sugar and sherry in a bowl and whisk until thick enough to hold its shape. Break 200g of the after-dinner mints into small pieces, then beat these into the cream mixture. Spoon into tiny glasses or bowls and chill until needed. Add 1 more thin after-dinner mint to each dessert before serving

Very rich and too sweet for me but my boyfriend loved it and he finished mine off. Needs adjusting for individual tastes, for sure. Not one where you should just 'follow the recipe'.

I didn't have any left over chocolate so had to buy some!!
When I had made this dish I thought it was a bit sickly, but after it had been left to chill and set the taste seemed to adjust and mellow out, it was delicious and creamy.
A definate make again recipe.

I was disappointed, not as yummy as I was expecting.

Made this using limited edition lemon After Eights. I used half quantities but made 5 small desserts as I reckoned it would be very rich. Obviously very easy to make and nice to eat.

Right with you lipstick! I'm assuming that we don't have to use cream sherry in it? being te-total I can't use alcohol in cooking - any other suggestions? Could you use mint essence?

Can this be made in advance or is it best to be eaten straightaway? I wouldn't want to make it early then return to it and it's a disaster!
