In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the sugar, butter and water, stirring occasionally until melted. Remove from heat, stir in the chocolate until melted and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Pour the chocolate mixture into a large bowl, and beat in the eggs, one at a time. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt, stir into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease baking trays. Roll cookie dough into walnut sized balls and place 5cm apart onto the prepared trays.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, be careful not to overbake. When cookies come out of the oven, Press one After Eight into the top of each cookie and let sit for 1 minute. When the mint is softened, swirl with the back of a spoon or skewer to make a pattern with the filling of the mint wafer. For smaller cookies, break mints in half.
Great easy recipe. Needed to use up some christmas after eights and these cookies were perfect! I found the after eights didn't melt enough when they were out the oven, so followed recipe of 8 minutes for cookies then put then back in, with the after eights on top, for a further minute.
