The days of dressing up, passing the port to the left and knowing which fork to use are gone. Great dinner parties today don’t rely on formal trappings and the fancy napkin rings to make guests feel welcome. Now it’s all about taking the pressure and showiness out of the evening and getting the right mixture of company and comforting good food.

At the end of the night, a good dinner party should be remembered chiefly for the atmosphere and great conversation, but a good recipe and chocolates to round off the night are good sweetener too.

Try this scrumptious dessert from After Eight to get their taste buds tingling this winter.

Ingredients for After Eight butter croissant pudding

3 reduced fat butter croissants
8 After Eight mints, roughly chopped
250ml semi skimmed milk
150ml half fat thick cream
2 medium eggs
¼ tsp vanilla bean extract
2 tsp golden caster sugar, for the top

To serve;
1 tbsp icing sugar for dusting

How to make After Eight butter croissant pudding

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3.
  • Grease a 20 cm (approximately 1 litre) baking dish.
  • Slice the croissants thickly and arrange the slices in the dish, scattered with the After Eight mints.
  • In a large jug, beat the milk, cream, eggs and vanilla.
  • Slowly pour the mixture over the croissants and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place the dish in a deep roasting pan and pour enough boiling water to come half way up the sides.
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the custard is softly set (has a slight wobble) and the top is puffy and golden.
  • Dust with icing sugar and serve warm.


  • This is fabulous when made with slices of Panettone instead of croissant.
  • You can prepare it a little in advance and keep in the fridge until ready to bake.
